Bringing the flair back into Italian fare, Armani Ristorante is easily one of the most progressive restaurants in the city with a menu that blends modern tastes with timeless classics. Housed in the iconic Burj Khalifa, the restaurant steers clear of the usual 'look at me' bling that Dubai has become acustomed to an instead, and instead boasts a clean, neutral space peppered with with leather, suede and dark wood finishings. While the retaurant's decor may pride itself of subtlety, dinner does come with an impressive view as the floor-to-ceiling windows are the best place to watch the Dubai Mall fountains, the largest water show of its kind in the world.
