Sometimes, all we want is to sit down, order large quantities, and stuff our stomach with as much delicious food as possible.
Luckily, this fittingly named Italian restaurant is now offering just the treat.
BASTA! by David Myers, in the Renaissance Downtown Dubai, is now serving a hearty five-course feast. And the aim is to fill you up.
For Dhs149 per person, The BASTA! Experience is available every day from noon until 1am.
Literally translating to “enough”, the venue by Michelin-starred chef David Myers has an assortment of dishes for guests to choose from in the offer.
Start off with a range of antipasti dishes, including focaccia with walnut pesto, burrata and datterina tomatoes, grilled calamari with pizzaiola sauce and marinated big eye tuna with “vitello tonnato” sauce.
And that’s only the first course. After this, diners will be treated to a wood-fired marinara pizza, topped with fresh tomatoes, oregano and garlic.
The next course brings foodies to pasta, with a homemade tagliolini with king prawns lathered in chili and garlic.
As for the main course, expect to choose from braised beef, polenta with a tomato and red onion salad, or opt for the roasted broccolini with chili and olive oil.
If you have space for a little more, the sweet roscioli tiramisu with crushed biscotti or the strawberry granité along with ricotta cream.
If you’re not waddling out the door after all that, we applaud your appetite.
This isn’t the only Dubai restaurant the “Gypsy Chef” Myers has opened. In the same hotel is charming French restaurant Bleu Blanc. Both opened last November. He also has the bar, Poppy by David Myers in the hotel if you’re after a pre-dinner drink.
