Did you know that the BiCE Ristorante Group holds 60 properties globally? The CEO of the company, Raffaele Ruggeri was present at the lunch, and I think he is the best looking man I have ever seen in my life. He looks like a Calvin Klein model, the ones that walk on the beach in white linen. In addition, he’s also incredibly charismatic.
Let’s get the swooning out the way so I can talk about the food (these pictures don’t even do him justice):
|Grilled prawns with asparagus and seafood ragout|
|Seafood risotto with baby zucchini and tomatos|
|Lobster ravioli with white sauce and black truffle|
|Kingklip with porcini mushrooms and asparagus sauce and grilled seabass with lemon potatoes|
|Classic Italian tiramisu and BiCE apple pie|
If you do go for dinner, make sure to pop by next door to the Rooftop bar. You’ve probably been there already, but if you haven’t- you really need to! It has a great view and I love going their for sundowners and some tempura prawn california rolls.
You can access the hotel’s restaurant and bar via the parking lot at Hyde Park Shopping Centre, just go to the lifts in the middle of the parkade.
