Sitting chic between Marc Jacobs and Hermès, and beneath the cascading white butterflies of The Dubai Mall's slick Fashion Avenue, the Armani Caffe is a haven for shoppers in need of refuelling. While the extensive menu does have its share of salad leaves, the pasta menu is the real gem; silky linguine with lobster in a cherry tomato sauce is a satisfying option. Also don't skip the coffee and dessert - Armani Caffe doles out the best espresso in Downtown Dubai and like the surrounding clientele of Fashion Ave, the chocolate fondant is outrageously rich.
Dubai's equivalent to an urban centre, Downtown encompasses some of the city's best-known landmarks, including the world's largest mall (The Dubai Mall) and world’s tallest building (the Burj Khalifa). The Dubai Mall metro station links to the restaurant boulevards below, as well as the Mall and the Burj Khalifa forecourt.
