About the event

Greetings Fellow Sharks,

It is our pleasure to host the Shark Tooth Sports Car Club dinner for the month of March.  We will be dining at the Columbia Restaurant at St. Armand’s Circle.  This restaurant has a long standing in Florida with its beginnings in Ybor city.  Here is a little history:

For Spanish-Cuban immigrant Casimiro Hernandez, Sr. , arriving in Tampa, FL, with his four young sons meant searching for opportunity and a better life.

On Dec. 17, 1903, he helped to open the Columbia Saloon, which became the Columbia Restaurant in 1905. (Original location in Ybor City)

Over nearly 120 years, the original restaurant has expanded to an entire city block and is now the largest Spanish restaurant in the world.

Casimiro's descendants diligently care for the Columbia Restaurant and help preserve his American dream. As Florida’s oldest restaurant, the Columbia has seven locations in Florida and is still owned and operated by family members.

We hope you will be able to join us in enjoying the delicious Spanish-Cuban cuisine   You can review the menu at:
