Grille One Sixteen Restaurant Review: The closest thing Carrollwood has to a hot-spot, Grille One Sixteen is all about Miami luxury: white leather booths, dim lights and sleek Chihuly-like jellyfish lamps. The bulk of the action centers around the long bar and thronged lounge area with its modern, low-slung leather club chairs. Despite the cocktail bustle and hum, the kitchen doesn't play second fiddle with its solid New American fare. Lots of familiar dishes---filet mignon with horseradish béarnaise, Caesar salad, a tuna tartare tower, New York strip---are paired with a thoughtful, short wine list. Service tends to be young and perhaps unpolished, but it doesn't mar the overall experience, especially if one ends with the plate of house-made donuts. A glassed-in wine cellar makes a fine private dining space for sixteen guests.
