Boca is located on West Platt Street in historic Hyde Park. The original garage and gas station was built in 1928, and was only the second gas station in Tampa. The original owner built the core building brick by brick himself and established a reputation for great service. Boca has paid tribute to the garage by restoring many elements from the original garage.
The Boca bar and kitchen rests solidly on cement floor that was once that garage. The Hyde Park location was chosen based on the sense of community that exists in this neighbourhood - a perfect match to the Boca experience. Boca, like the streets of Hyde Park, is just minutes from Tampa but a world away from the city.
Boca Kitchen, Bar, and Market is a community-driven, farm-to-table restaurant that provides a hand-crafted menu from our experienced chefs.
While we do have items on our menu that are proven favorites and will remain there for a familiar taste, we also provide daily specials that cater to the more adventurous tastebuds.
The arrangement of the tables and the seating in the establishment encourages conversation and communion among the guests, making it the perfect venue to host intimate events and celebrations.
In addition to our wonderful restaurant, we have a small market full of fresh, local products for our guests to take home and enjoy.
The hope is that you will enjoy food here that is hearty and comfortable but also things that perhaps you have never tried or even heard of befor
