Dolce Italian Opens at Gale HotelFriday, January 18, Dolce Italian at the Gale South Beach, 1690 Collins Avenue, Miami Beach

Six weeks after $35 million made The Gale & Regent into a 1940s-style boutique hotel situated on a corner off Collins Avenue and 17th Street. Dolce Italian, Italian Riviera-influenced design, has taken over the two-level lobby to serve nicely affordable Italian classics amidst marble communal tables, plush grey leather lounges, black & white family portraits, and a mozzarella bar. Chef Paolo Dorigato brings simple Italian technique and flavors to this 6,000-square-foot space that includes a lounge and bar area, main dining room with a wood-fired pizza oven and mozzarella bar, and an outdoor café. The menu will include the hotel restaurant standards like salads, pizzas and pasta, as well as modernized Italian classics like veal milanese. Priced from $13 to $19, pizzas range from the Tartufata with a blend of mozarella, fontina, and robiola truffle cheeses to the Zingara with spicy salami, roasted peppers, onions, and fior de latte mozzarella. Salads and antipasti are priced from $9 to $19 per dish and will offer spaghetti al pomodoro, short rib cannelloni with porcini cream, and pappardelle with duck ragu, baby spinach and pumpkin ravioli and smoked ricotta.
