You can travel from Dubai to Sicily by way of a three-course meal, every Tuesday, at Palazzo Versace Dubai’s Italian restaurant Vanitas. With antipasti favourites like prawn carpaccio and tuna tartare, perfectly al dente pastas and fresh, seafood courses of sea bass and grilled octopus, you’ll feel like you’ve landed on the pristine waters of Sicily.
Sicily, the island off the coast of the ‘boot’, celebrates its authentic cuisine at Vanitas, showcasing true Sicilian culture that is made up of a lifetime of small, yet significant traditions and stories. We’re letting you in on a little Sicilian secret by featuring the iconic Sicilian dish, Arancini I risu, a ball of breaded, creamy risotto rice, stuffed with ground beef & green peas. We’d also recommend Penne alla Norma, one of the island’s most famous pasta dishes and the perfect representation of Sicilian cuisine. Made with tomatoes, aubergines, basil & salted ricotta, it’s called Norma after the nineteenth century opera of the same name, whereby both the dish and the music, are viewed as true masterpieces.
Of course, Sicily has its share of renowned sweets starring the Sicilian cannoli, deep-fried tubes of creamy ricotta, as well cassata, a Sicilian sponge-cake flavoured with chocolate & citrus fruits, both proving that desserts can be considered as the country’s greatest exports.
Vanitas promises flavour-filled evenings at Palazzo Versace Dubai where you can discover the famous island’s cuisine that definitely deserve a “bellisimo”!
ABOUT PALAZZO VERSACE DUBAI
Reminiscent of a 16th century Italian Palace, Palazzo Versace Dubai is a Neoclassical masterpiece with subtle traces of Arabian architecture. Featuring a striking entrance, high ceilings, landscaped gardens, and a range of well-crafted Italian furnishings, the hotel is truly symbolic of the Versace lifestyle.
Set in the heart of the Jaddaf Waterfront , less than 15 minutes away from Dubai International Airport and eight minutes away from Burj Khalifa and Downtown Dubai, Palazzo Versace Dubai is conveniently located along the shores of the historic Dubai Creek.
Every single piece of furniture and fabric that adorns the hotel’s 215 hotel rooms and suites, and 169 residences, is designed and tailor-made by Versace exclusively for the Palazzo Versace Hotel in Dubai. Each of the hotel’s 8 restaurants and bars is designed to have an al fresco terrace to reflect the heritage of Palazzos, where the internal court was the informal space to meet, dine and enjoy the weather. The three outdoor pools are decorated with mosaic tiles and surrounded by palm trees and flowers. The beautifully landscaped gardens and unobstructed views of the Dubai Creek and skyline, make this luxury hotel an ideal venue for weddings and social events in Dubai. UAE developer ENSHAA in conjunction with Versace developed Palazzo Versace Dubai, a hotel and residential project, which opened in November 2015.
