Clang, Clang, Clang

... went the trolley. OK, trolley, streetcar, streetcar, trolley? Is there a difference? Tonight it was Streetcar Charlie's in Ybor City to celebrate the birthdays of Bob and Clyde. This group event was organized by Cruise Director Julie (aka Bob, but a different Bob), who now gets another 15 minutes in the spotlight (such as it is) on The Urban Flaneur.

This was my first visit to Streetcar Charlie's. Living in downtown St. Petersburg, I don't venture into Ybor very often but it was well worth the trip across the bay to dine at this restaurant, and more importantly to help friends celebrate their birthdays.

Frank and I both opted for the cedar-planked salmon which was very tasty and cooked perfectly to a medium rare. It was served with a side of either yellow rice or mashed potatoes,and steamed broccoli, all just average. Others in the group had burgers or pasta, which all looked good. The menu is eclectic with something for everyone. I would definitely recommend the salmon and Streetcar Charlie's when in Ybor City.

That's all I'm Saying.
