Italian restaurant to open at The Beach in JBR, Dubai, and Yas Mall, Abu Dhabi
Carluccio’s will open two new outlets in the UAE by the end of the year - at The Beach in JBR in November, and Yas Mall, Abu Dhabi.
Part of the Landmark Group, the Italian eatery's new Dubai branch will occupy 658 square metres, with 250 seats and a terrace that can accommodate 150 people. This will be the largest Carluccio’s in the world to date.
Carluccio’s third outlet in Abu Dhabi is also due to open in November and will be located in Yas Mall, Abu Dhabi. At 293 square metres, it will include al fresco seating.
The two new launches bring the total number of Carluccio’s outlets in the UAE to 10, with existing outlets situated in Ibn Battuta Mall, Mirdif City Centre, the Dubai Mall, Dubai Marina Mall, Deira City Centre, Dubai Airport Terminal 3, The Galleria Mall and Eastern Mangroves.
Senior business manager of the brand, Duncan Muir, said: "Being located in Yas Island and JBR, two of the main attractions for tourists and residents looking for a comfortable and unique dining experience, will increase the popularity of Carluccio’s in the UAE.
"The successful combination of the authentic Italian cuisine coupled with the easily accessible locations of the restaurants across the UAE makes Carluccio’s a perfect family dining destination."
