Dine on exquisite Italian food at Emirates Palace

The newly-opened Talea allows diners to enjoy a highly curated selection of seasonal and authentic Italian dishes in an elegant yet lively setting. Talea’s menu draws on two Michelin starred chef Antonio Guida’s distinctive culinary style to create ‘Cucina di Famiglia’, or family-style cooking. From handmade ravioli, authentic spaghetti alla carbonara and artisanal pizza to osso buco and vitello tonnato (a chilled veal dish that forms an indispensable part of the Assumption Day feast in Milan), the menu fuses traditional techniques with an innovative edge, which is essentially the signature of Guida.

Bowl and dine at Yas Bay Waterfront

Inspired by the streets of the Big Apple, Central has opened its doors at Yas Bay. A restaurant, bar and family entertainment hub with torn-away walls and handcrafted graffiti, this neon joint offers a menu of burgers, shakes and beverages. Positioned as the younger sibling of Lock, Stock & Barrel, Central’s bowling alley flips at midnight to service the party crowd of its big brother. You heard right – Lock, Stock & Barrel patrons can put their hand-eye coordination to the test as the Central Bowling Alley links the two venues together!

Indulge in a Quench and Glow Facial

Even though most of us follow a daily skin routine at home, it’s not as effective as facials performed by experts. EDITION Spa, at The Abu Dhabi EDITION, has catered to those needs with the Quench and Glow Facial, a nourishing facial that leaves even the thirstiest skins hydrated and ready for any element. Peptides and brightening botanicals instantly penetrate the skin, increasing water retention while reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Available daily, from 10am to 10pm. AED 325 (30-minute treatment).
