Bocce Bar's Lunch Menu and Dolce’s New Dishes

By Carissa Chesanek  |  January 6, 2014

The beginning of a new year has everyone eager to make solid New Year's resolutions, including these two Italian eateries resolving to feed us even more tasty Tuscan-style cuisine with brand new menus to try.

Midtown’s new Bocce Bar now offers lunch starting at 11:30 AM. Diners can choose from Italian dishes similar to the dinner menu (but served in slightly smaller sizes and cheaper prices) like a kale Caesar with oven dried tomatoes and white anchovies, garlic lobster linguini in a tomato broth or the pan-seared branzino served with calabrese chili-braised fennel (786-245-6211).

Dolce Italian celebrates its one year anniversary by revamping both its lunch and dinner menus. Evening guests can enjoy beef carpaccio pizza made with truffle pecorino or duck and foie gras-stuffed tortelli with burgundy truffles along with brand new grill selections like Australian rack of lamb served with fingerling potatoes. Lunchgoers can choose from slightly lighter options like vegetable and farro salad made with artichokes and speck or the Dolce panini made of mozzarella, tomato and prosciutto di Parma that stuffed between warm pizza dough (786-975-2550).
