Recipient of Florida Trend Golden Spoon Hall of Fame Award

 

Named "Best of the Bay" by the readers of Tampa Bay Magazine

 

The “Grand Lady of the Bay” is home to Marchand’s Bar & Grill, a swank eatery that keeps vigil over the downtown marina. Remodeling efforts emulate the Mediterranean decor present throughout the Renaissance Vinoy Resort while utilizing rich woods and marbles. Keeping up with changes in guest expectations and healthier lifestyles, the menu also reflects a brand new era -- gone are the tired sauces and a heavier fare of yesteryear. In their place, the menu reflects the flavors of the Mediterranean with touches of other global influences, such as a macadamia-encrusted fish might be served with a papaya or mango salsa, while the lamb is redolent of the most virgin olive oil with touches of fresh rosemary. Careful preparation coupled with exquisite presentation renders each plate an experience. This is dining to be savored, not merely experienced. – CityGuide Tampa Bay

Restaurant History - Pompeian Dining Room

Situated on the slopes of Vesuvius, Pompeii was luxuriating in prosperity in 79 A.D., when the great volcano erupted and buried the ancient Italian city and all its splendor.

 

In the 18th century, archeological research and excavation first began at the site and continues today.  A flurry of new discoveries in the 1920’s coincided with the opening of the Vinoy Park Hotel in 1925.

 

Eminent architect, Henry L. Taylor, charged by Aymer Vinoy Laughner to design this grand building, quickly embraced the thrilling findings at Pompeii.  The vibrant “Pompeian” colors of red, blue, black and yellow, plus the fanciful and mythological decorative motifs were lavishly applied in the elegant dining room overlooking the bay.

 

The renovation of the Vinoy in the 1990s included a meticulous, although only partial, restoration of the original murals in the Vinoy’s historic dining room, Marchand’s Bar & Grill.  In 2012, a further restoration of these extraordinary paintings occurred, complementing the overall beauty of the room.
