3 restaurants to visit in Dubai this week
Taste of Italy by Pasquale Sipone Teatro
If you want a “taste of Italy”, you probably want someone called Pasquale Siponi in the kitchen preparing it for you. Teatro’s head chef has crafted a menu of traditional and contemporary Italian dishes, with the mains featuring five dishes: osso buco Milanese with saffron carnaroli risotto; slow braised black angus short ribs with truffle Idaho potato and broccoli; herb and pesto crusted lamb with berry jelly; grilled octopus with asparagus; and lobster ravioli with scallop, prawn, porcini mushroom and tomato cream sauce. Bellissimo!

The hotel at the gateway to Media City has been undergoing some refurbishment, not least at the Dek on 8. A new ladies day, We Run The World, has been put together by the guys behind Ibiza party brand Sin Sundays. Starting at 12pm with DJ Chris Wright and moving through until an after party with Dane Bowers, this is how you should be starting the week.
