Bob Spoto is back! He’s touched our lives with so many
memories. The old “Stockyard Inn”, with cozy intimate booths
in Seminole, the Art-deco, lavender confection of
Loehmann’s Plaza restaurant and bakery in Clearwater.
Next the hot pink and chrome 50’s style “Slicker’s” in Tampa,
Smokey’s Texas Barbeque in Pinellas Park and
Spoto’s Supper Club in Portobelo Plaza in Seminole.
Yes, right here in this very spot. He gave fun and excitement
to the restaurant scene that few have been able to duplicate.
Before or since. After trying “retirement” for a few months, it
was the “Steak Joint” scenario. The Spoto’s Original steak Joint in St Petersburg and then Steak Joint II in Dunedin. Retirement
beckoned again but it wasn’t for long.
