2013-03-06 08:25:01 - For a taste of Italy that is just a little different to the standard pasta and pizza, the Grand Millennium Dubai is featuring a two-week festival celebrating Sardinian food at its popular Dante restaurant.
The Mediterranean island of Sardinia is justly famous for its seafood, but traditional meats are also on the menu as well as a variety of cheeses, olives and rustic bread.
The four-course menu is priced at AED195, and is available from 18:30 to 23:30 hours nightly between March 16 and 28.
Among the dishes set to tantalize the taste buds are mussels with fresh tomato concasse and fresh octopus salad with lemon tomatoes for starters, to be followed by pastas, either with port sausage and saffron tomato sauce, clam broth or pecorino cheese and mint.
For the main attraction, baby goat comes infused with myrtle and roasted with potatoes and rosemary, while meat is paired with fresh raw vegetables and seafood lovers will
love the sautéed prawns in a wine and tomato sauce– and everyone can enjoy the delicious traditional desserts, either Seadas pastries with Sardinian eucalyptus honey or ricotta cheesecake with lemon ice-cream.
According to General Manager, Peter Mansourian, the taste of Sardinian will open up a new style of Italian cuisine to Dubai food lovers: “Sardinia offers a distinct menu of ingredients and cooking, lighter perhaps than some other regions of Italy, and this menu has been designed to showcase the specialties that our guests can enjoy”.
Dante serves exquisite Italian cuisine in an atmospheric setting - a place where you can come together and live ‘la dolce vita’. It offers an ideal venue to socialize for families, friends, food lovers and couples and also features an outdoor terrace where you can discover passionate creations from ‘Bella Italia’.
Located just off the Sheikh Zayed Road, the Grand Millennium is conveniently accessible from the Mall of the Emirates and the Ibn Battuta Mall, as well as within easy reach of the city’s prime business and leisure attraction including the beach and golf courses. The 343-room five star hotel features a range of award-winning restaurants and bars, a beautiful rooftop pool, superb spa and health club with nine-treatment rooms, state-of-the-art meeting rooms, a magnificent ballroom and exceptional banquet facilities.
