Two Michelin-starred restaurant to open in Dubai
Don Alfonso 1890 to open doors in Shangri-La Hotel, Sheikh Zayed Road
Italy’s two-Michelin starred Italian restaurant, Don Alfonso 1890, is expanding in the Middle East with the opening of its outlet in the Shangri-La Hotel, Sheikh Zayed Road, Dubai.
The Dubai venue follows the brand's launches in Macau, Marrakesh and Rome, and will showcase a blend of modern contemporary and traditional Italian cuisines.
Don Alfonso 1890 is set to welcome guests from mid-March with an a la carte and degustation menu. The venue features an open-format kitchen at the heart of the dining space, with chef Christian de Nadai at the helm, who learnt his trade under the celebrated chef Don Alfonso himself.
The restaurant has won a multitude of global accolades for its organic ‘living off the land’ approach to five-star dining – including the Five Star Diamond Award from 2000 to 2013.
It was also judged by the late New York Times’ columnist, RW Apple, in the top ten restaurants in the world.
