THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Bice Ristorante Restaurant Review

: Seamlessly interred in the lobby of the ultra-modern Le Meridien, this South Florida location of Bice boasts a striated wood floor and lots of light coming in through the glass. Spare and polished, it's a perfect setting for the reflective if expected cuisine; ever-changing wine list; and slick service. The solid Italian fare hails back to its roots with quality ingredients, but also looks forward with a touch of nouvelle creativity; a dish of raw ahi tuna rolled around fresh crab and perched over a mixed salad of watercress, arugula, baby chicory, orange and grapefruit segments and shavings of ripe avocado, for instance, bodes well for the sushi bar. More traditional entrées include a pressed, roasted baby chicken that showcases skin as crisp as a tourist's and a juicy, mild flesh. Desserts run the gamut from tired tiramisu to a refreshing seasonal fruit platter with lemon sorbet. For a truly Italian experience, order the cheese plate for dessert, which comes with a trilogy of hard, soft and blue cheeses; a trio of chestnut, acacia and millefiori honeys; and freshly roasted walnuts. The textural and flavor counterpoints of these combinations energize rather than weigh down the palate.
