This swish new restaurant is now is now open at Armani Dubai Hotel, dominating the third floor of the property. The restaurant has 250 seats and is the first independent dining destination at the hotel. The 23,500 sq m restaurant was formerly an events space, and it’s been transformed into a chic new restaurant. As with the rest of the hotel, décor is minimalist and classic, using plenty of creams, greys and metallics, while furnishings are modern. Massive floor to ceiling windows allow views out to the Dubai Fountain, while there’s also a terrace for the cooler months. Dishes range from raw bar bites to grills, roast cauliflower and miso-marinate black cod.
