Ar­mani/Dubai Caffé and Em­po­rio Ar­mani Caffé

Friday - - Fashion -

Ar­mani/Dubai Caffé in The Dubai Mall is clas­sic chic and min­i­mal­is­tic, much like de­signer and founder Gior­gio Ar­mani’s fash­ion de­signs. The Ital­ian restau­rant and café serves tra­di­tional dishes, in line with the de­signer’s other food ven­tures in Mi­lan, Lon­don and Paris. Ar­mani/ Dubai Af­ter­noon Tea in Style (Dh149), avail­able on week­days be­tween 3-6pm, is a must-try – the glam­orous se­lec­tion of sweet and savoury treats is the per­fect way to end a day of shop­ping in The Dubai Mall.

The sis­ter café Em­po­rio Ar­mani caffé now has two branches in the UAE. This more ca­sual din­ing ex­pe­ri­ence has a huge dessert menu, plus hot and cold savoury dishes de­signed by the Ar­mani Group’s cor­po­rate chef in Mi­lan. Tra­di­tional dishes get a mod­ern twist. Of course, in true Ar­mani style, pre­sen­ta­tion is ev­ery­thing, so each dish is a work of art, cre­ated with min­i­mal­is­tic colour­ful de­signs. Must-tries in­clude the im­pres­sive se­lec­tion of sal­ads and the Ital­ian sharing plat­ters. Make sure you leave space for dessert – the fresh cakes and pas­tries are in­cred­i­ble. In true Ital­ian style the restau­rant rec­om­mends fin­ish­ing your dish with a shot of espresso. Out­lets are at the Gal­le­ria on Al Maryah Is­land, Abu Dhabi (02 676 6995) and Mall of the Emi­rates, Dubai (04 341 0591). Ex­pect to pay Dh175 for a three-course meal.
