Fire and Ice–Raffles Grill
Fire and Ice–Raffles Grill Review
As much a performance as an eating experience, the contrasting stations at Fire and Ice promise a night to remember. Open hot kitchens are ringed with flames and chilled cabinets radiate electric blue neon, giving a hint of Arctic atmosphere. The menu is provocative, with choices from the ice counter and the flame station, but the food doesn't need gimmicks to get by. The tastes are well thought out and fresh ingredients are backed up by a seemingly endless wine list. One wall of the restaurant holds a vast glass-sided cave where hundreds of bottles await. The steaks are the specialties here, including Wagyu beef from Japan and Aberdeen Angus from Scotland. The terra-cotta brick floors provide a strong visual contrast from the ebony and burgundy furniture. Lofted ceilings and mezzanine areas add to the drama of the space. The bill will be a weighty one, but the expertly prepared food is well worth the cost.
