A new restaurant crafted by Blake Casper and Allison Casper Adams, founders of Oxford Commons Hospitality Company, is set to open on July 5 in the heart of Tampa’s Water Street District.

Predalina, located on the ground floor of the luxury high-rise Cora, 1001 E. Cumberland Ave., will celebrate the flavors of the Mediterranean, centered around an exquisite seafood-driven menu.

“We are excited to open a restaurant in the heart of Tampa’s downtown and to be a part of the Water Street community – there is nothing else like it in Tampa, and we are excited to call it home,” said Blake Casper, CEO of Caspers Company.

Mr. Casper and Allison Casper Adams operate a portfolio of hospitality and retail shops in Tampa. This includes the popular Oxford Exchange, The Library, Current Hotel, and The Stovall House. Predalina pays homage to their great-grandmother, Predaliana Oliveira, who served as an inspiration for the restaurant’s name as well as the menu and decor.

Predalina was designed by Oxford Design Studio, Smith Dalia Architects, and NAINOA Interior Design & Architecture. The restaurant space is 7,000 square feet indoors, featuring a large dining room, expansive bar area and is complemented by a shaded outdoor patio.

Reservations are available on Resy starting on Wednesday, June 28. For more information go to
