Cipriani - The Dubai Edition

Grilled Chilean Sea Bass

Grilled Chilean Sea Bass

IN A NUTSHELL

Cipriani has opened its doors in Dubai and who wouldn't want another Italian addition to Dubai. The food is good, the vibe is a bit uptight but you'll have a nice time overall.
Fun Fact: Giuseppe Cipriani is the founder of the carpaccio (yet the carpaccio at Cipriani is definitely not the best I've had)

THE MOOD

The venue is like a big retro cruise ship with white, blue and wooden nautical furniture. The vibe is a bit uptight, but this might change once they open Socialista, the private lounge area. 

THE FOOD

Everything at Cipriani tastes good - ingredients are super fresh and dishes are cooked to perfection - yet, nothing at Cipriani will make you come back for more. Highlights included: 

- Burrata with cherry tomatoes
- King Crab with lemon and olive oil
- Burrata and truffle pizza
- Lobster risotto
- Grilled Sea bass

bianca

In a nutshell

Bianca is a hearty italian restaurant located in boxpark with simple traditional italian dishes. They locally produce their dairy products, burrata amidst them, and this ensures you get the freshest products in town.  Perfect spot for a casual weekend lunch.

the mood

As the name implies, Bianca's interior is all white and contrary to all Dubai restaurants, it's small enough and cozy enough.  

the food

Do not leave without ordering one of these:
- Al Bicchiere: Burrata served in a jar mixed with juicy cherry tomatoes, spinach leaves and croutons. The freshness of the burrata is amazing!
- Parmigiana di Melanzane: This melanzane has the perfect balance of aubergine, pamesan and tomato sauce
-  Tagliatelle con funghi al profumo di tartufo: You will really enjoy the creaminess of the mushroom sauce enhanced with the perfect amount of tartufo
- Penne alla Siciliana: Aubergines wins again with this dish
