Timpano Las Olas (“Timpano”), the 292-seat restaurant, which has anchored the city’s namesake Boulevard for more than 20 years, reopened in August 2022. Part of the Tavistock Restaurant Collection, the reimagined Timpano offers a bold approach to contemporary dining for guests who want to be surrounded by sophistication with a modern menu inspired by culinary heritage. The completely revamped menu was carefully created under the direction of Tavistock Restaurant Collection’s Vice President of Food & Beverage, Michael Ferraro and is executed by Executive Chef, Omar Lorenzana, and Corporate Pastry Chef, Stuart Whitfield. Chef Ferraro and Chef Stuart developed the menu over the past year together, a reunion of sorts for the duo who both shared kitchen-rank in several New York City restaurants.

The addition of more craft and scratch practices can be seen throughout the menu, which includes an in-house baking and pastry program as well as handmade artisanal Italian-flour pasta. Specialty farms are also highlighted by foraged Colusa Farms mushrooms and Wagyu beef sourced from the rangelands of Queensland, Australia. The restaurant offers weekday lunch, nightly dinner, and weekend brunch. With nostalgia and comfort in mind, Ferraro brought his family recipes to the table, from a family red sauce to his dad’s namesake Georgio’s Meatballs antipasti.

Other classic starters include Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms made with fennel sausage, local mozzarella, and caprese crumbs, as well as selections of Cured Meats and Semolina-Dusted Calamari. Modern-day references stretch beyond the plate at Timpano, with shareable picture-worthy moments that continue the narrative of chic and contemporary. Dining room gueridon service includes the “Parm to Table Experience” – Uni Alfredo with an enhancement offering of Timpano branded caviar served on the finest Versace plates – and Chef Whitfield’s Tableside Bomboloni, which unveils an illuminated version of this rustic Italian favorite. A nod to South Florida’s iconic Art Deco design, Timpano is characterized by striking color combinations of emeralds, aubergines, golds, monochromatics, and pops of pink. Complementing design inspiration includes bold geometrics throughout the space, such as a black and white checkerboard floor tile, flame stitch and metal-chain curtains, and customized wall coverings that bares Timpano’s signature icon – the peacock.

The focal point of the dining room is the dramatic bar lounge, with a seductive and sophisticated vibe complemented by resident DJ’s. The wine and beverage program were carefully crafted by General Manager and certified sommelier, Mark Molina and Drew Romanos, front of house manager, who joined the team from Abe & Louie’s Boston. An impressive list of curated whiskey stretches beyond the traditional and an extensive wine list features well-known producers but rewards the curious with hidden gems such as Arnaldo Caprai from Montefalco decanted into Vera Wang crystal. The restaurant also offers a private wine tasting room, which doubles as a dining room.

The room is home to an intimate dining table, temperature-controlled wine refrigerators, and audio-visual amenities. Beyond the interiors is a breathtaking outdoor patio (Il Giardino) that borrows inspiration from The Secret Garden, replete with mirrors and all-weather coverings.
