It’s fair to say Marco Pierre White has lost the credibility he once gained from the days of being the youngest chef ever to receive three Michelin stars. But here in Dubai with one of the most recognized award-winning jockeys, Frankie Dettori they opened Frankie’s Italian Bar and Grill. Known as Dubai’s home of Italian food, classic jazz and comedy dine and laugh nights.
Inside, a stylish restaurant is an eclectic mix of relaxed Italian dining and sumptuous Italian fare. It’s quite spacious and the whole ambiance reminds me of the scene in 1920’s films where gentlemen in dapper suits and women in their sequence dresses, cigars, glasses and champagne popping in between laughter while a jazz singer serenades the night.
Classic recipes to add a modern twist to the more conventional Italian recipes of the past. The menu is a fusion of the traditional such as lasagna, pizzas and bruschetta, alongside innovative dishes of truffle rice croquettes and eggplant roulade.
Of course I ordered my favorite Italian dishes, started with Burrata cheese with lemon marinated tomatoes,grissini, basil oil which was fabulously prepared in front of us by Chef Matteo Guerra. It was so delightful to witness how he effortlessly made and formed the cheese down to plating. The main dish was a bomb, I had lamb! Everybody knows how picky I am when having lamb but Chef Matteos seared loin of lamb, sauteed turnip greens, raisins and peanut cream was simply delicious! And a must try homemade ravioli filled with duck meat, served with thyme sauce and smoked ricotta. Her’s the full MENU details.
