Il Borro Tuscan Bistro Dubai
The newest addition to Jumeirah's hotel family, Jumeirah Al Naseem, has welcomed the opening of Dubai's latest chic food spot: Il Borro Tuscan Bistro Dubai. Owned by the famed Ferragamo family, this is the first international Il Borro Tuscan outpost and will serve some of its signature dishes including Burrata and tartar or the more exotic sounding offerings such as Pappa al pomodoro, Pici all'aglione and Bistecca alla fiorentina.
