Piz­za­Ex­press Live

Mu­sic, tricks and lots of pie at this new brunch

What's On (Dubai) - - CONSUME -

Not to be mis­taken for the long-serv­ing JLT out­post Jazz@Piz­za­Ex­press, Piz­za­Ex­press Live is a new serv­ing of pie-meets-mu­sic lo­cated in Busi­ness Bay.

Their re­cently launched Fork It brunch prom­ises a four-hour pack­age of un­lim­ited bev­er­ages, a starter buf­fet, a la carte main and set dessert, along­side live mu­sic, a DJ and an il­lu­sion­ist.

The brunch kicked off with dough balls, cold meats and end­less plates of salad and an­tipasti. It’s in­for­mal fin­ger food done to a high stan­dard. For mains, it’s a sim­ple choice of six dishes and a short rib with risotto was a ta­ble-wide hit, while a huge porcini mush­room pizza driz­zled with truf­fle oil im­pressed all guests.

Half way through brunch, the live mu­sic kicked in – first up was a flute player, who clev­erly worked along­side a DJ, and then it was the turn of an acous­tic singer who also beat­boxes, and played the trum­pet and gui­tar while roam­ing the ta­bles. The roam­ing il­lu­sion­ist was also on hand to keep guests en­ter­tained.

Dessert is the only thing that dis­ap­pointed, with a trio of three mouth­fuls of slightly dry car­rot cake, choco­late cake and cheese­cake served al­most as an af­ter­thought at the end. We’d rather they hadn’t both­ered; our Ital­ian food coma had al­ready taken over.
