An interview with  Chef Tim Andriola, Basil Park and Timo in Sunny Isles, FL - The magic of good food for health and cheer enjoyment


More and more restaurants are focusing on health these days.  It may sound stern and a tad bleak but at Basil Park, the newest endeavor from restaurateurs Tim Andriola and Rodrigo Martinez, next door to the immensely popular Timo in Sunny Isles, every item of the healthy, nutrient rich “intact cuisine”, is a treat: from drinks to desserts, you won’t find flour, sugar, milk or any adulterated ingredients.

Chef Andriola makes good-for-you food come alive with flavor influences from the Mediterranean, Asia and Latin America and with  clever touches like cashew-based "cream."

Every aspect of health and well being were thought of, from the design of the kitchen to the local organic produce, micro greens and other farm ingredients which Farmer/partner Tamer Harpke of Harpke’s Family Farm in Hollywood  provides daily. The menu which features rotisserie pasture raised natural chicken, grass-fed meats a la plancha, sustainable seafood and a vast array of vegetarian dishes, also features  raw organic cold pressed juices from the juice bar, organic almond milk, cashew cream and cheese , organic wines, organic beer and sake.

Basil Park is located at 17608 Collins Ave., Sunny Isles and is open daily for breakfast, lunch, dinner from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m.
