Blue Door has faded into Bianca (white in Italian). The Light Group, who currently own and operate 15 restaurant and nightlife venues in Las Vegas, make their debut in the Miami market on January 27th, 2012 with five new restaurants, bars and lounges, including the Delano’s new signature restaurant, BIANCA. The space was totally redecorated by interior design by Sam Robin, Inc. with traditional Italian furniture with a contemporary twist, antique pillars imported from Southeast Asia and wood blinds covered by gold linen drapes to allow an open and airy feel

The Italian‐inspired restaurant with Chef Brian Massie — BIANCA’s Corporate Executive Chef —serves modern Italian fare. Massie, a native New Yorker, has trained with famed Chef Lidia Bastianich and restaurateur Charlie Palmer, in addition to participating in an apprenticeship with Gualtiero Marchesi, a pioneer in Italian cuisine at his Bella Vista Vineyards in Erbusco.

BIANCA ‘s inventive Italian menu is based on local, organic ingredients and is a participant in

the Slow Food movement, with signature dishes, such as simply‐grilled Langoustines and handmade pasta along with seasonal truffles, shaved tableside. Entrées include branzino, snapper and an all‐natural NY Sirloin.

In the lobby, Umi Sushi & Sake Bar, is a communal dining experience with sushi classics by Chef Brian Massie. Delano’s Rose Bar is being re‐introduced after a brief cosmetic face‐lift. Delano’s water salon is now the Delano Beach Club, and the new subterranean lounge, aptly named FDR, after the hotel's presidential namesake, is geared to high‐energy nights in South Beach.

BIANCA is open for dinner from 7pm to 11:30pm daily, breakfast from 7am to 11:30am and

lunch from 11:30am to 4pm. Bianca brunch is served Saturday and Sunday from 11am to 4pm.

I had an invite to the new Delano restaurant Bianca pre-Grand Opening party Thursday night and even though I was confirmed, the ladies at the door did not let me in, even though I received a confirmation email. This is a bad PR move, HUGE mistake on their part and I am owed at the very least an apology. I wasted my time, money and stress to make it there only to be turned down. I will never forget my humiliating experience that night. :sad:
