Welcome the Alfresco season at Piatti by the Beach with a new Italian-inspired winter menu

Piatti by the Beach, located at the iconic Raffles the Palm Dubai, welcomes the alfresco season with a new winter menu inspired by South Italy’s authentic flavours.

This culinary haven is spearheaded by the visionary Chef Izu Ani, leading the kitchen’s creative force, with Chef Francesco Cortorillo as the Executive Chef. Chef Izu’s culinary journey stands as a testament to his commitment to using the finest ingredients, blending tradition with innovation, where each bite captures the heart of Italy. Carrying the commitment forward, Chef de Cuisine Oscar Noviello oversees daily operations, ensuring meticulous execution and seamless functioning.

Drawing inspiration from the rich culinary traditions of Southern Italy, Piatti by the Beach’s new winter menu will impress every palate. Guests can start with the raw selection of tartare and oysters or a special carpaccio selection, from Yellow Tail to Beef Carpaccio. The starters exude Italian charm, featuring delectable dishes such as the Bocconcini di Bufala con Degustazione di Tartare, buffalo mozzarella bites with langoustines, red prawns, bluefin tuna and wild salmon.

The pasta dishes promise an authentic taste of Italy with every bite. Guests can choose from a wide selection, including the Tagliolini allo Scoglio prepared with fresh seafood. They can also savour the Fagottelli Gamberi e Pesto di Pistacchi, showcasing homemade ravioli filled with red prawns and a pistachio and pesto sauce. Adding to these delights is the Spaghetti alle Vongole, presenting Spaghetti di Gragnano with clams, garlic, and chilli, offering a blend of aromas and tastes. Pizza aficionados can delight in signature thin and crusty pizzas, including the best seller Daviola.

For the mains, guests can expect the exquisite Branzino in Padella, Filetto di Tonno Rosso ai Ferri, or the rich flavours of Polpo alla Luciana, featuring grilled octopus served with tomato sauce, black olives, capers and croutons. Epicureans can indulge in the Scampi o Gamberoni Reali alla Griglia, succulent langoustines and vibrant King Prawns Carabineros sourced from the hotel’s fish bar, showcasing the freshest catch of the day. No journey through Southern Italy’s culinary essence is complete without a sweet ending. Delightful options include the Millefoglie Scomposta ai Frutti di Bosco, a deconstructed Mille-Feuille cake featuring custard cream and forest fruits, or the Torta Caprese con Gelato alla Vaniglia, a chocolate cake complemented by almond and hazelnut crumble, served with vanilla ice cream.
