Time Out Says
Set high up in Emirates Financial Towers, within city slickers’ playground, DIFC, Al Grissino, with its crisp, white tablecloths and Downtown views, should be an easy sell. So why doesn’t it always fill out like others in the area? It’s nothing to do with the setting, nor the faultless service. The answer lies largely within the cooking. Despite a menu almost as vast as the venue itself (an import from Milan, Italy), there’s little to love – portions are equally huge, only serving to highlight each dish’s shortcomings. These shortcomings broadly boil down to a general lack of finesse – pasta dishes are much too soft, while mains such as black cod alle erbette (tomato and spinach sauce) are cloying. DIFC’s diners are a discerning bunch – you’d be wise to follow their lead.
