The unchallenged rulers of glamorous Vegas nightlife, The Light Group, have, let’s face it, decisively conquered Sin City. So it was virtually inevitable that they would finally make a home in that other Mecca of unapologetic decadence, South Beach. And choosing to install their chic new eatery Bianca in the legendary Delano, SoBe’s original celeb-magnet hotel, sends a clear statement: WE DO NOT ARRIVE HERE QUIETLY! But Bianca is more about enjoying epicurean pleasures than it is about just showing off.
The four distinct Sam Robins-designed spaces are airy and casually sexy, with Italian furniture, gold linen drapes, and antique Southeast Asian pillars. Chef Brian Massie (who was mentored by Lidia Bastianich) offers up creative takes on Branzino, Snapper and Sirloin Bistecca, and cocktails like the Tuscan Sunset and Bianca Bellini round out the breezy, Continental vibe. As the Delano is still a prime draw for the glittery people, expect lots of famous and fabulous faces.
