Spend an epic evening dining with larger-than-life culinary genius Chef Massimo Bottura at Torno Subito at W Dubai – The Palm on 16 & 17 October 2019.
Experience the Culinary Mastermind Massimo Bottura at Torno Subito, W The Palm this October
Torno Subito at W Dubai – The Palm is the hotel’s signature Italian venue and Chef Massimo’s only restaurant outside Italy.
For this exclusive event series, Torno Subito will see Chef Massimo cooking up a stunning eight course spread of some of his favourite dishes.
Featuring an incredible selection of Italian tradition in evolution created with Massimo’s renowned flair and a few special touches inspired by Dubai, guests will indulge in Torno Subito’s playful vibe and true cuisine.
The night will see a delectable selection being served up from an eclectic selection of dishes starting with an unconventional Caesar Salad with 14 unique ingredients hand-picked from Modena, Dubai and New York, followed by Chef’s ‘Favourite of Focaccia’ with Robiola cheese and black truffle.
Pizza fans will love the Calzone – a delicious folded pizza filled with mozzarella and scamorza, followed by the Polpo of roasted octopus, green pea velvet and crunchy pickled vegetables before the tartare course of fassona beef tartare with a selection of Mediterranean ingredients.
No evening of Italian food would be complete without pasta, and Chef Massimo will cook up a fantastic Tagliatelle Al Ragu with the traditional egg pasta served with Massimo’s favourite hand-chopped wagyu ragu.
The meat dishes are set to continue with the last of the mains and what Chef Massimo calls the ‘Beautiful, Psychedelic Spin-Painted Veal, Not Flame-Grilled’, otherwise known as his take on slow-cooked beef tenderloin.
Diners can then enjoy the sweetest of finishes with the ‘Tiramisubito’ dessert featuring foamy mascarpone, coffee ice cream, espresso sauce and meringue.
Chef Massimo opened the doors to Torno Subito in February 2019. This destination restaurant is a throwback to his childhood memories of holidays spent in Rimini on the Italian Riviera in the 1960s.
The phrase “Torno Subito” translates to “I’ll be back soon!” and is borrowed from sign boards that hang in closed store fronts in Italy indicating their afternoon break.
Departing from the fine-dining experience of Osteria Francescana, Torno Subito, in true Italian fashion, amplifies the whimsical atmosphere of a nostalgic era.
The venue is normally open for both lunch and dinner allowing guests to hit ESCAPE by taking guests on a journey back to 1960’s Italy, where the vibe is sophisticated and social, but laidback.
From the moment you step through the doors to the last morsel, Massimo remixes tradition with the decidedly avant-garde in a masterful, yet playful menu of his favourite recipes.
Torno Subito’s kitchen is led by Chef Bernardo Paladini, the hand-picked protégé of Chef Massimo. After spending 7 years in Modena at Osteria Francescana and Franceschetta 58, Chef Bernardo brings a clear thread, through his own culinary talents, to Dubai.
