Block 40 Food Hall Opens in Hollywood

Buying a home is a big endeavor in which the neighborhood is as important as the walls you’ll live in. Some people suss out the school district, others opt to investigate proximity to parks, major highways, or the water.

Before I placed an offer on my condo in Hollywood six years ago, I needed to check out the food scene. It’s safe to say that Hollywood’s eats weren’t varied — but Tipsy Boar had a good burger and an excellent beer selection, so I knew I had a place to go at least once a week. Hollywood’s dining choices weren’t fantastic, but there were enough winners to make a girl happy: Krakatoa, Mickey Byrne’s, and Helen Huang’s come to mind.

In the past few months, Miami has become quite lively with the openings of The Vintage Wine Bar, J&C Oyster, and now Block 40 Food Hall, which just opened today.

Society 8 Hospitality Group (Sistrunk Marketplace, The House on the River)’s Steve Dapuzzo told me of his plans to open a food hall in Hollywood about two years ago and I’ve been waiting with bated breath ever since.
