  • Safety Harbor's Green Springs springs fresh favorites on repeat visitors

    Green Springs Bistro, reflecting the original 1800′s name for the Safety Harbor area, is also an original. Owners Kris Kubik and chef Paul Kapsalis have a close connection to patrons. They know their guests’ names. They know what their customers eat. They know where their customers’ kids went to school. They probably could name the roles their children performed in school plays. Such is the charm of this Cheers-like, cozy bistro housed in a 30s cottage off the main drag. The storybook setting boasts a cheery hearth, bright walls, vibrant murals, stained glass and work by local artists. The chef’s repertoire includes Gulf coast recipes for  steak, shellfish, and other Florida catch.

    About Travel ... by Ashley Grant, Tampa Bay Expert

    To say Green Springs Bistro is my favorite restaurant would be going a little too far, but it is certainly my favorite restaurant in Safety Harbor! The food is delicious, the owners are awesome and I’ve never had a bad experience there. Things I would never think to put together always end up tasting great and I always find something new to see when I visit.

    There’s something very comforting about a restaurant housed in a reclaimed bungalow. Perhaps its multiple, intimate dining spaces lend themselves to charming design. Or maybe it harkens back to childhood memories of visiting special relatives. For me, I can’t help thinking of the wonderful Brigtsen’s in uptown New Orleans near the river bend. Or, closer to home, the winsome Chef T’s Garden Grill in Lakeland. Just entering the front door piques your expectations for something special. At Safety Harbor’s Green Springs Bistro, colorful horizontal beadboard-lined rooms with beachy themes and works by local artists catch your eye. And the bar has a humorous ceramic fish practically engulfing a bottle of wine.

    GSB celebrates Gulf coast cookin’ with a touch of the Mediterranean thrown in. A teasing demitasse of tomato-bean bisque prepares our palates. Then, chef Paul Kapsalis honors his Greek heritage with two terrific appetizers. Saganaki — oven-roasted kefalograviera (a firm Greek sheep’s milk cheese), bathed in olive oil in a sizzling cast-iron skillet (from whence the name comes) — arrives at the table with a golden brown crust, and our server squeezes fresh lemon and shouts “Oooopa!!!” with a flair, leaving the table to luxuriate in the warm, oozing cheese with fresh country bread.
