II. ZANZE XVI With its talented and charming young staff, Zanze XVI in Venice, Italy is a treat for the mouth and the eyes. It is rare to hear English spoken in this restaurant, as most of the diners appear to be locals. The plating at the hip but cozy location is a marvel and is a testament to the chef ’s vision and creativity. Our team was particularly impressed with the look of the fried sardine sour dish that is topped with month-long spiced rose water marinated onion and a pink floral salad. The fairy-dust-like raspberry powder throws this dish over the top adding a sweet-tasting and feminine-looking finish. Our starter, basil cream beignets with a light powdered sugar were heaven while they lasted (for about five seconds). Be sure to order the stonefish caper soup with a roasted potato broth and the spider crab Orecchiette (little ears) pasta to follow. Santa Croce, 231 30135 Veneice, Italy zanze.it
