Hi everyone

We are staying at PBH for the first time in a couple of weeks for 2 nights (previously stayed at HRH twice) and I was wondering which of the restaurants at the PBH are best for families???

Thanks in advance

i'm not sure how much you want to spend on dinners at pbh.

i know dsmom , goofy! , damo have used the onsite restuarants at pbh and would have excellent advice.

hopefully they and others that have eaten there will give better direction to you than i can.

i have used Sals which i love and many do like that place.
if you like pizza, go for it.

from the pbh website for a general over all view.
i know you prefer personal recommendations but i have only been to sals.

The Story of Bice
The network of Bice restaurants spanning the world today began in 1926 in Milan. Beatrice Ruggeri – Bice to her family and friends – was known for her extraordinary hospitality and personal warmth.

For years she was encouraged to open her "cucina" to the public. In 1926 she agreed, albeit reluctantly, and a neighborhood trattoria – loosely translated, a "friendly gathering place" – was opened.

With Bice in the kitchen and her brothers and sisters serving in the dining room, il Ristorante Da Gino e Bice, or Bice as it would later be known, had a family feeling. Bice Ruggeri became a recognized Milanese restauranteur and her sons Remo and Roberto took steps to extend the vision throughout the globe.

Open daily for dinner. Reservations recommended 407-503-1415

I highly recommend Sal's for pizza and salad. Eat outside and listen to the opera singers perform live from the balcony above.
