717 South's dazzling, cosmopolitan menu transports diners to a wonderland of exotic pacific-inspired fare. Dine on innovative evening dishes such as the ceviche cones ($8.90), whose citrus-infused succulence, much like a matador's heart, is protected by a blue corn tortilla shell. Release contented sighs into the wild from the chic, sun-dappled patio while cutting into the macadamia-encrusted chicken, juicy poultry cloaked in lobster and sherry cream sauce and served over jalapeño sweet potatoes and veggies ($17.90). Pierce the pistachio hide of the mango demi-glace lamb ($22.90 for a half rack) in the elegant dining room, or swing by for lighter lunch options such as the guava-marinated pork tenderloin sandwich ($8.95) and the sesame crab cakes, flanked by a posse of papaya salsa and wasabi aioli ($13.95).
A series of sensual portraits by Tamara de Lempicka graces the walls of 717 South’s dining room. The flashy art-deco aesthetic extends to the whole dining room, where burnt orange and blue walls glow in contrast to angular black stripes. 717 South’s plates of upscale fusion fare are no less elegantly appointed: chefs - including recent Tampa Best Chef Competition's "Chef of the Year" winner Robert Masson - drizzle fresh seafood, aged Hereford steaks, and farm-fresh chicken with sauces, herbs, and salsas inspired by Asian, American, and Italian flavors. In addition to the dining room, guests can perch on the outdoor patio, which is secluded enough for sharing romantic dinners or tenderly whispering nutrition facts.
