You’d think the fact that Armani Caffe is located entirely in the Dubai Mall’s public concourse would minimise its atmosphere and, well, style. But then you’d be forgetting that this is Giorgio Armani’s ‘caffe’ and that the area of the mall we’re talking about is none other than Fashion Avenue. Flanked by Prada, Louis Vuitton, Gucci and co, Armani Caffe oozes sophistication. Cuisine is ‘haute cafe’ – dig into hearty tomato and mozzarella salad, grilled salmon, varied pasta dishes or fantastic pizzas. Service is slick: every knife at the right angle and every dish revealed with pride from under a silver lid – as though each were a fashionable design awaiting your approval.
