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.

Hyde Park Village is a hotbed of activity. Florida favorites like The Hyppo Gourmet Ice Pops, The Candle Pour, Buddy Brew, On Swann, Goody Goody and the newly open Hyde House co-work/events space have made it one of the most trafficked spots in the city. The sensational Forbici and Slyce Joint, and the emergence of national favorite like Lulu Lemon, bar taco, and Vineyard Vines have further enhanced its appeal for longtime residents and recent arrivals.
