La Maison Ani

Chef Izu Ani's venture into French patisseries come in the form of La Maison Ani. Found on the first floor of Dubai Mall's Fashion Avenue, this chic space is a far cry from your typical mall restaurant – with pretty pink archways welcoming you, white-cloth tables and the kind of service you would expect at a five-star hotel. The menu is fresh and uplifting, focusing on French-Mediterranean flavours, with dishes like beef carpaccio, truffle tart, escargot, lobster linguine and mushroom risotto.


Occupying a space on the ground floor of Dubai Mall's Fashion Avenue, Armani/Caffe encapsulates the brand's luxe aesthetic in an elegant eatery. The open-plan setting offers coffee and breakfast, before serving refined Italian dishes from 12pm until late. Plates include lobster and seafood bisque, lemon-scented risotto with Sicilian prawns, veal Milanese and wagyu striploin. It's an ideal spot to catch up with friends, or as a rest point between hitting the shops and exploring the attractions Dubai Mall has to offer.
