The new place—at 901 W Platt St., the former home of Hyde Park’s Boca—also has an entirely different look than the original Temple Terrace spot. While the East Tampa restaurant has a quaint and cozy vibe, the South Tampa space is more, well, South Tampa-y.

Hours of operation are Tuesday-Thursday 4 p.m.-9 p.m., Friday-Saturday,11 a.m. to 11 p.m. and 11 a.m.-9 p.m. on Sunday. To stay up to date, follow @babushkas.hydepark on Instagram for more.
