Il Borro

Friday - - Fashion -

The fam­ily be­hind the Sal­va­tore Fer­rag­amo fash­ion brand re­cently opened Tus­can Bistro Il Borro at the new Jumeirah Al Naseem ho­tel. Named after the Il Borro es­tate in Tus­cany, which is owned by the fash­ion fam­ily, the restau­rant brings the taste of Tus­can cui­sine to the UAE – by im­port­ing in­gre­di­ents from the gar­dens of the Il Borro Re­lais and Chateaux es­tate in Tus­cany to Dubai, four times a week.

Il Borro has a re­laxed and mod­ern at­mo­sphere that en­cap­su­lates the fash­ion brand. The Fer­rag­amo com­pany is cur­rently run by Sal­va­tore’s son Fer­ruc­cio Fer­rag­amo and his four sib­lings (Sal­va­tore Fer­rag­amo him­self died in 1960 after found­ing to fash­ion brand al­most 40 years be­fore). The menu con­sists of an­tipasti sharing dishes, pizza, pasta and oven-baked dishes; ex­ec­u­tive chef An­drea Cam­pani wanted to put a mod­ern twist on clas­sic recipes mak­ing sure they look as ap­peal­ing as Fer­rag­amo’s fash­ion cre­ations. Ex­pect to pay Dh400 for a three­course meal; call 04 275 5555.
