A Wonderful Day in the Neighborhood

Sunny Isles finally gets an eatery it deserves

Timó's prices are decent, almost all entrées under $20. A full dinner, with tax, tip, and bottled water, will run around $50 per person, but it's possible to stop by for a pizza, plate of pasta, or that aromatic roast chicken, along with soup or salad and tax and tip, for about $30. These estimations don't include wine, but you'll likely be tempted by the many Mediterranean selections. It would be neighborly of Timó to consider offering more than four red wines by the glass, though.

Service is promising at this early stage of Timó. The waiters have evidently been trained in the professional methodology of serving people, and while some haven't yet become accustomed to doing so in a smooth, second-nature manner, you get the feeling that under Rodrigo Martinez's tutelage they'll acquire seasoning quicker than chicken under a salt shaker. Rodrigo is perpetually there, backing up his crew, seeing that all is running well, and making customers feel at home. It is, in fact, Timó's warm hospitality, combined with accommodating service and honest, approachable cuisine, that could lead to the unprecedented occurrence of South Beach residents driving to Sunny Isles for dinner. Which of course would defeat the whole eat-close-to-home idea.
