Depending upon who you ask, the restaurant formerly known as RICE has been loosely renamed “Restaurant at the W.” Others are calling it “The W Restaurant.”
Either way, don’t assume that a blurred identity equates to tenuous cuisine. The kitchen’s latest incarnation, orchestrated by newly appointed chef John Garcia, is nothing short of brilliant.
