There’s a swanky new restaurant coming to Dubai, and we can’t wait to get another top Italian in the city.
Two Michelin-starred Marea is set to open up in DIFC in September this year, and if it’s anything like the original restaurant in New York, we will be in for interiors just as striking as the food.
Atelier House hospitality group, which is behind the opening, has hinted heavily that the menu will feature seafood dishes – which is music to our ears.
The menu will be curated by Chef Michael White, who is behind the food at the restaurant in NYC, and our hopes are certainly high.
Marea, meaning “tide” in Italian, claims to “redefine the seascape of high-end Italian cuisine serving regional foods of Italy”, and that sounds pretty good to us.
The New York restaurant boasts a menu that “reads like a map of the sea”, with a wide variety of shellfish, oysters and fish dishes, as well as home-made pasta.
White has a strong CV, having trained in Italy. He also runs Michelin-starred Al Fiori and his group Altamarea has several restaurants including casual New York Italian eatery Osteria Morini, Nicoletta, which specialises in pizza, and steak restaurant Costata among others. He also has Al Molo, which translates as “The Pier” at Victoria Harbour in Hong Kong.
The restaurant will join a string of phenomenal Italian restaurants in the city, including Roberto’s, Cipriani and Time Out Dubai’s restaurant of the year, Il Borro Tuscan Bistro.
