Designed by Klai Juba Wald Architects out of Las Vegas, Rise Kitchen & Deli covers 9,681 sq. ft., which includes more than 5,900 sq. ft. of dining space and over 3,700 sq. ft. for the kitchen.

“Rise Kitchen & Deli is the go-to dining option for fresh, chef-driven food that compliments the soul,” said Dawn Lazo, vice president of food and beverage. “Whether you are looking for a morning treat, late night snack or anything in between, Rise Kitchen & Deli has something for everyone.”

Led by Chef Valentín Castañeda and Pastry Chef Stephan Schubert, the restaurant offers a unique menu with inspired breakfast offerings and house roasted deli sandwiches, as well as decadent cakes and pastries made from scratch each day.

Breakfast items include such favorites as grits & eggs, omelets and skillet platters, while the lunch menu features “From the Deli – Your Way,” which gives the guest a choice of meat, bread and spread along with house-made chips and a pickle. Main entrées include beef short ribs, salmon and pan seared pork chops.

The grab-and-go service includes a wide array of specialty coffees like Americano, chai latte and espresso. Additionally, there is an extensive list of pastries offered including chocolate chunk cookies, turtle brownies, sticky buns, éclairs and cheesecake on a stick.

Seminole Hard Rock Tampa will continue to expand and refresh its culinary amenities with the addition of a new 200-seat Italian restaurant slated to open in the fall. It will be the property’s third fine dining restaurant, joining the award-winning restaurants Council Oak Steaks & Seafood and The Rez Grill.
