What You'll Get
The perfect food and wine pairing is like the fateful meeting of destined lovers, best celebrated with a tiny mock wedding presided over by a curmudgeonly pepper mill with a heart of gold. Combine cuisine and wine the way nature intended with today's deal. For $15, you get $30 worth of Italian cuisine and drinks at BiCE Bistro, located in Westgate City Center in Glendale. Call ahead to make a reservation, or deliver it in proper Italian fashion via heartbreaking aria.
As you settle in among the chic comforts and azure-and-saffron accent lights of BiCE Bistro's dining room, your esophageal alignment will inadvertently assimilate to the décor's clean lines, preparing your pipes for pairings aplenty. BiCE boasts an extensive wine and drink menu overflowing with sommelier-selected sips, specialty cocktails, and icy brews. Pair a glass of Italian white wine ($7–$11) with an order of tuna and salmon tartar served with avocado, red onion, tomato, and fresh basil ($15), or complement a fruity Tuscan Sunset cocktail (Campari, Amaretto Di Saronno, Beefeater, pineapple juice, and orange juice, $10) with an order of prosciutto di Parma con melone dolce (melon wrapped in prosciutto, $14). If you're overwhelmed by your options, BiCE's on-site sommelier will help you find your dish's sipping soulmate, and will also politely correct common wine-rookie errors such as mistakenly drinking a prosciutto caprese panini ($12).
With your palate properly piqued, set your taste buds' creepy, unblinking eyes on BiCE's bountiful menu of tasty entrees and handmade pasta. The ravioli di pesce serves up pillows of pasta stuffed with crab and shrimp meat happily coated in a lobster cream sauce ($17). BiCE's Neapolitan pizzas come in fancy flavors such as margherita classica, quattro formaggio con pollo, Monica Bellucci, and salsiccia e funghi, all names loosely translated to "sharing is caring" ($10–$14). BiCE's long list of authentic meaty entrees includes epically named beef medallions with a balsamic reduction (medaglioni di manzo con riduzione di balsamico e purea di Pptate all’aglio, $23), strip steak with spinach and fingerling potatoes ($24), and veal piccata with a lemon caper white-wine sauce ($22). The bistro's menu also includes a wide variety of salads, soups, paninis, seafood dishes, funiculìs, and funiculàs.
