ONCE AGAIN, CIPRI­ANI IN DIFC IS THE PLACE TO GRAB SOME OF THE BEST ITAL­IAN BITES IN DUBAI’S POSH­EST COM­MER­CIAL DIS­TRICT

We’ve been rav­ing about the busi­ness lunch op­tions in DIFC for a while now, and it’s hard not to. Only the best of the bunch would cater to the crowd in ar­guably Dubai’s most glam­orous com­mer­cial dis­trict.

The fare at Cipri­ani’s is among the best in the area, as it must be, given that it has a nearly 90 year legacy to live up to. There is ab­so­lutely no way you’ll walk away from this this most Ital­ian of restau­rants with­out feel­ing any­thing less than sat­is­fied on the finest Ital­ian cui­sine.

Each day car­ries a dif­fer­ent spe­cial for lunch. As restau­rant man­ager Luca Fior­ini says, “We have a very strict stan­dard of what we pre­pare our meals with so we buy a lot of what we pre­pare fresh on the day.”

And it shows. Cipri­ani starts you off with a se­lec­tion of freshly baked bread and fried zuc­chini chips. You won’t be able to get enough of the lat­ter, guar­an­teed.

We or­dered the Carpac­cio ‘ala Cipri­ani’ to start off – the restau­rant is famed for be­ing the pro­gen­i­tors of the thinly sliced beef starters, named af­ter the 18th cen­tury Ital­ian pain­ter that Giuseppe Cipri­ani was an ad­mirer of. Fol­lowed by this was the Tagli­atelle with Duck Ragu. An ab­so­lutely di­vine creation, the shred­ded main course would eas­ily sat­isfy even the most fam­ished of road war­riors.

Last but not least, came the vanilla mereg­nue. The sponge cake has been a Cipri­ani sig­na­ture menu item since 1931. Lay­ered with pas­try and whipped cream topped with slightly torched merengue, don’t be sur­prised if this end to a fan­tas­tic meal leaves you with no room left for din­ner.

Fam­ished? There is ab­so­lutely no way you’ll feel any­thing less than stuffed af­ter Cipri­ani’s de­lec­ta­ble busi­ness lunch
