The Epicurean, a 137-room boutique hotel in Florida has a targeted opening date of November 2013, with groundbreaking slated for this October. The hotel, located in the Hyde Park historic distric of South Tampa, will feature a large, state-of-the-art culinary classroom, high-end bistro, wine shop, rooftop lounge, full-service spa and a retail and production bakery and pastry shop. Developers call it a "food-focused hotel."

The Epicurean is being developed in collaboration with Bern's Steak House in Tampa, and will be the first newly built property to join the Autograph Collection of Marriott International. Joe Collier, president of the development company doing the project, Mainsail Lodging & Development, said some of the special experiences planned for the Epicurean includes wine lockers for guests, evening wine sampling, signature organic bath products and luxury linens and pillows. The Hotel will also be home to the popular annual Bern's WineFest, and will host a variety of cooking demos and classes, wine exhibitions and more from chefs and sommeliers around the world.
