There are tons of option in South Beach for dinner but only a handful of restaurants are so incredibly beautiful as the interior of BICE Ristorante. I never sit outside but come here quite often as everyone is super friendly at the bar. All of the bartenders are very helpful and this is a place where I come with my IPAD to write and feel I am just at home.
One of my favorites chefs in SOBE is Rosario Corrado who runs the kitchen here at BICE Ristorante. He is the type of chef that always wants to feed you! and I love that. He is young and talented, he knows his food and with a background like his; born in Italy and went to culinary school in Spain, the dishes he puts out are quite delicious! The last time I was there I had his ceviche which is served with a generous side of plantain chips. The ceviche was fresh, the red onion not too overwhelming as it was perfectly thin and the lime juice mixed with other (I would say "secret ingredients") was superb.
All in all, BICE is a place where Chef Rosario Corrado together with his team serves food from the heart. I recommend that although you might get tempted to sit outside for some people watching that you in fact go inside the restaurant if you want to have a more pleasant experience. At least for me to watch the jellyfish they have on the right hand side is relaxing and very romantic. The decor of this restaurant is very unique, you really get to appreciate the beauty if you go inside and sit at one of the elegant tables overlooking the kitchen.
