To paraphrase the poet Ogden Nash: A wonderful place is the Pelican -- its plates hold more food than your belly can. Grab a seat on the outdoor patio that spills onto Ocean Drive and indulge in an overflowing Mediterranean salad composed of shrimp, arugula, radicchio, corn, hearts of palm, and fresh mozzarella dressed in extra-virgin olive oil. Or try the wide, thin strips of homemade pappardelle with Bolognese sauce, or ravioli circles stuffed with ricotta cheese and smothered in a tomato sauce as fresh and vibrant as those red-lipsticked gals in the Diesel ads (Diesel owns the Pelican Hotel). Add a basket of warm rolls and a glass of wine from an impressively wide selection, and you'll be privy to one of the best moderately priced Italian meals on the Beach.
