AWARD-WINNING ITALIAN RESTAURANT INTRODUCES ‘THE AMALFI EXPERIENCE’
Head Chef Pascal Sfara introduces bespoke menu for food connoisseurs in Abu Dhabi
Abu Dhabi, 12 May 2015 – Amalfi Italian restaurant in the newly-renovated Le Royal Méridien Abu Dhabi hotel is excited to introduce ‘The Amalfi Experience’, a bespoke dining experience unlike anything else on offer in Abu Dhabi.
Michelin-star trained Head Chef Pascal Sfara will guide the diner through a delicious gastronomic journey to Italy with a menu fully tailored for couples or groups, whether it be a special occasion or romantic dinner for two, or a group of friends, family or colleagues wanting to do something really special and a bit different.
From appetisers to desserts, the colours, aromas, flavours and tastes will be blended in perfect harmony and are sure to please. Combined with the service one would expect to find in a Michelin restaurant, Chef Pascal and Amalfi will offer guests a delectable experience like nothing else available in the capital.
Originally from Montpellier in France, Pascal grew up in Italy, and began his career at his family-owned hotel and restaurant in Maratea, Italy, before hitting the headlines at four Michelin-starred restaurants situated throughout Italy and France: Open Collona, Agata e Romeo and The Pergola Tree in Rome, followed by Jardin des Sens in France.
In 2008, Pascal graduated from ALMA, the school of haute cuisine in Parma, which is directed by the Italian Master Chef Gualtiero Marchesi. ALMA trains chefs from around the world, creating true professionals of Italian cuisine.
Chef Pascal said: “My aim for Amalfi is to make it the Italian restaurant of choice in Abu Dhabi. I’m always looking at ways to differentiate Amalfi’s menu and service, and The Amalfi Experience will enable me to put my Italian flair in a very interactive and special way on the diner’s experience. I am very passionate about food and about pleasing people with my food.
“Simply let me know your cravings and I will fine-tune a special menu based on your wants and desires, created just for you, taking you through an Amalfi experience like no other.”
Justin Galea, Executive Chef and Director of Food and Beverages at Le Royal Méridien Abu Dhabi, commented: “At Le Royal Méridien Abu Dhabi, we’re always looking to do something ‘out of the box’, to offer our guests an elevated experience which is different and unique. Pascal’s passion is evident in his creations and there is a story behind each of his dishes.”
“The Amalfi Experience will provide guests with a Michelin-starred restaurant experience, both in terms of the quality of food and the service, and Chef Pascal, being the big personality he is and such an experienced Italian chef, will bring his unique touch to the dining experience.”
Advance booking is essential, and at least 48 hours’ notice is required to allow Chef Pascal time for consultation and for preparation of the bespoke menu. Please contact Amalfi on 800 101 101 for more information.
