Bice Ristorante Restaurant Review

: An offshoot of the original Bice in Milan, this stylish Adam Tihany-designed Midtown restaurant is a big draw for New York elites. The Northern Italian menu changes often according to seasonal and locally available ingredients. Begin with antipasti like chilled lobster, beef carpaccio, and crispy crab cakes, then move on to the homemade pastas. Heartier appetites may opt for such entrées as grass-fed filet mignon, cedar wood plank grilled sea bass, or Venetian-style calf’s liver. For wine, choose among a passable list that includes many Italian and California vintages.
