The Tampa Convention Center says two Tampa restaurants with big local followings, Datz and Big Ray's Fish, Camp will open locations there this fall.
"Food and beverage is one of our top priorities," said Eric Blanc, the center's director of sales, marketing and convention services. "It's one thing every visitor remembers."
Big Ray's Fish Camp will open at the convention center's Sail waterfront bar.
Datz will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. with a pickup window opening to the Riverwalk and a picnic basket on the menu.
