Bringing Italian culinary hospitality to Dubai, Giorgio Armani’s stylish Armani/Caffè has opened in Fashion Avenue.
Italian fashion designer Giorgio Armani’s exclusive collection of international dining destinations continues to grow, with the latest addition – Armani/Caffè – taking up residence at Fashion Avenue in Dubai Mall. Occupying a premium position opposite the Giorgio Armani boutique on the ground floor, the new cafe embodies the signature style of Giorgio Armani from design aesthetic to menu items, reinterpreting Italian pavement café-style social occasions for a Dubai audience.
Offering an inviting open-plan layout, Armani/Caffè presents a central service island surrounded by intimate seating and exuding contemporary elegance. The space features a colour palette of softly muted blues and greens accented with classic Armani motifs, resulting in a sophisticated Italian ambience that is both welcoming and refined.
The menu has been thoughtfully curated by the Italian-led culinary team, with diners invited to enjoy an elevated collection of day-to-night dishes that begin with the simple pleasures of a mid-morning coffee and pastry or healthy breakfast option. From midday onwards, diners can choose from a selection of light lunch classics — a classic vitello tonnato, antipasti selection, and fragrant lobster and seafood bisque among others. Those seeking an early dinner, meanwhile, can opt for authentic mains like lemon-scented risotto with Sicilian prawns, veal Milanese, and Wagyu striploin.
The perfect location for a sweet stop-off between shops, the new Armani/Caffè also serves signature desserts, so expect to indulge in the likes of white chocolate and gold leaf cheesecake, which is already a bestseller at the nearby Armani Hotel. Innovative mocktails, speciality Armani coffees (including the famous Armani gold latte), and a new non-alcoholic Armani Spritz round out the menu.
