After much industry speculation, Rmal Hospitality has finally opened Frankie's Italian Lounge and Grill, in Dubai's Al Fattan Marine Tower.
Founded by champion jockey and Goldolphin stables resident Frankie Dettori and Marco Pierre White-Frankie's aims to offer old-school glamour, food theatrics, live entertainment and fun. The restaurant is well-established in the UK.
"As part of our business expansion plans both regionally and internationally, we are dedicating time to bringing world-class dining and hospitality experiences to the Gulf market. Frankie's is an excellent addition to our growing food and beverage portfolio and we are confident that it will be a great success," said Anthony Liddiard, CEO of Rmal Hospitality.
A VIP event has already been planned for the end of November that will see a visit from Detorri and White to inaugurate the restaurant, and host the official opening party.
Commented Walter Hall, COO of Rmal Hospitality:"Frankie's has an excellent location in Dubai's marina district providing a new dining experience to the surrounding residential areas, whilst a 45 minute drive from Abu Dhabi.
We have recognised a growing trend for unique dining experiences in the Gulf, and we will continue to bring new concepts and experiences to cater for the demand."
