About Chef Collins and the Iberian Rooster
Chef Collins is the former chef at the Refinery in Tampa. "We are bad ass!" he writes. The Iberian Rooster serves "splendid, simple colonial Portuguese fusion" and hand-crafted cocktails..
Iberian Rooster is "where the complexity of colonial street food meets the simplicity of tapas, interlocking in unexpectedly seamless ways to create innovative, dynamic flavors worthy of the harmony that exists between the culinary cultures of Mozambique, Macau, Brazil, and Goa," according to their website.
Downstairs you’ll find Subcentral, a modern speakeasy offering "delicious – and potentially dangerous (yet always entertaining)" hand-crafted cocktails, and entertainment. Depending on the day, you may find jazz quartets, bawdy burlesque or perhaps even silent film.
