This isn’t the only sweet news sweeping Hyde Park Village.

Timpano Italian Chophouse, a Hyde Park staple restaurant for more nearly two decades, will reopen this year. The massive concept took over the old Samba Room restaurant space back in 2005. Its sister concept in Ft. Lauderdale is also looking to reopen.

Dessert dreams are already coming true in Tampa courtesy of The Cake Drip. The sensational concept by Faronda Davis may be the most photogenic space in the entire city.

Davis launched ABC Chefs, her successful kids cooking school, back in 2008. Over the course of several years Davis grew it to where it now has been featured on Food Network, FOX and FYI. Faronda Davis, the chef and owner of The Cake Drip decided “it’s time for some adult fun” in 2021.

The gorgeous space will be filled with more than 10,000 flowers, lots of unique decor and a great mood. The Cake Drip is a fairytale come to life.
