I am an avid foodie looking for new places to eat. What are some tasty dining experiences near my USF apartment?

One of the greatest things about living near the University of South Florida, is the campus's proximity to so many unique dining locations. If you enjoy a great dining experience, USF is the place to be. One of the most important things to start doing is saving up money to go out to cool restaurants close to apartments near USF. If you are a student, you probably won't get to eat out as much as you would like to, but by getting a cheap apartment or living in an already furnished apartment, you can use some of the money you would have spent on furniture and rent for a special dinner fund. 


This restaurant off West Morrison Avenue offers small plates with big flavors. They have small plates ranging from $6-$49, perfect for anyone looking to share with other people or try multiple different dishes in one meal. It's difficult to find a dining experience that offers the opportunity to try small portions of meats, cheeses, and desserts for a reasonable price. If you want to explore your palate, Haven is the perfect culinary playground to venture to!
