Cipriani Dubai’s daily Business Lunch does away with waiting.

Rob Chilton

There’s nothing worse than popping out to a restaurant at lunch only to spend 30 minutes of your precious time glancing at your watch while waiting for your food to turn up. More than once, the YACHTS team has had to hail anchor and head out the door back to the office with a doggy bag, as the service was simply too slow.

However, Cipriani Dubai understands that time is indeed precious and will ensure that its three course Business Lunch will be served swiftly to ensure it fits within the usual lunch break.

The Italian restaurant also understands that variety is the spice of life, changing the menu daily, to ensure diners can experience a diverse mix of Venetian cuisine as well as Cipriani signature items

The business lunch starts with a choice of fresh salads including; Fennel and Avocado with Shaved Parmesan, Lentil Salad with Summer Vegetables, Marinated Aubergines with Stracchino Cheese, Pappa al Pomodoro or Thinly Sliced Veal with Tonnato Sauce.

Hand-made Italian pastas, such as the Spaghetti alla Vongole, White Tagliarelle alla “Nerano”, Cannoli “alla Siciliana” or the Homemade Potato Gnocchi “alla Guardi” are available as a main.

For those selecting the daily meat or fish option, there’s the Boneless Chicken Spezzatino “alla Pizzaiola” with Rice Pilaf, Green Tagliarelle with Braised Lamb or Seared Scottish Salmon with Cherry Tomatoes and Capers.

Set in the heart of DIFC, Cipriani Dubai features a blue and white nautical aesthetic, high gloss wood interior with polished steel finishes and brown leather chairs.
