Fodor's Expert Review Carpaccio Bal Harbour
As expected for its ritzy location, this upscale restaurant matches its high-fashion neighbors, albeit in a refreshing manner. There’s no funky furniture nor slick decor, just simple white-clothed tables and charming Italian touches. Waiters don bow ties and coattails, even for lunch hours, yet are approachable in their knowledge and attentiveness. Made with the freshest ingredients, practically everything on the menu jumps out, though the handmade mozzarella antipasti, clam linguine, and namesake beef carpaccio are signature dishes. An extensive list of wines from Italy, California, and other worldly regions will perfectly complement your meal and offer a fitting end to a successful shopping excursion. You won't be alone appreciating the good service and food—Carpaccio is known for long lines wrapping around the restaurant, so it's best to try and snag a table early.
