TIMO (17624 Collins Ave.) in Sunny Isles is the product of the teamwork of a top chef, experienced GM, and a staff committed to going above and beyond.
Chef Tim Andriola started working kitchens as a kid in Lee, New Hampshire at his family's restaurant, the Gateway. In South Florida he started as a busser at Chef Allen's before becoming Chef De Cuisine. Later, he worked as Executive Chef at Mark's South Beach before opening his own spot, TIMO in Sunny Isles with former Norman's GM Rodrigo Martinez.
TIMO specializes in Italian/Mediterranean cuisine and serves home made pasta, lots of fish, and brick oven pizza.
Here are some kitchen pictures from a recent night at TIMO.
