Dolce's happy hour launched last week and consists of two-for-one specialty cocktails and beers. Dubbed Apertivo Happy Hour, it runs seven days a week from 6 to 7:30 p.m. And because Dolce prides itself on uniquely handcrafted drinks designed to cleanse the palate, it might be the perfect place to prepare for good eats.
A sunset, $29 prix fixe dinner will also be served seven days a week during the same time as happy hour. No amount of drinks sit well with an empty stomach, so three courses offered by Italian-born chef Paolo Dorigato should be more than enough to keep you from suffering the damage that the Bellinis and Rossinis can cause.
As far as the food goes, menu items change daily. Appetizers include butternut squash soup, porchetta, and seafood salad. Entrées include lobster-and-pea risotto, chicken cacciatore (with polenta and mushroom sauce), and grilled salmon (with roasted vegetables and black olive sauce).
Leave space for dessert. Options include tiramisu, panna cotta, tartufo, chocolate mousse, and honey vanilla budino. The dinner takes place while the sun sets on SoBe. Now there's something else to get happy about.
