Food Fund International (FFI) is set to open Americano, an American style bar and restaurant at the Souk Madinat Jumeirah. The hangout will serve American cuisine and beverages and is set to add a surreptitious feel to the Dubai social scene.
Guests can enjoy lunch, dinner and late drinks every day (Sunday through Saturday) from 12pm (noon) until 3am.
The menu offers grills, burgers and steaks for the meat lovers as well as vegetarian friendly and gluten-free plate options. The beverage programme is also comprehensive.
The interiors feature quirky antiques and trinkets of the past century that add character and life in every corner. The mix of brass, leather prohibition-style seating and cushy modern materials give the space a modish ambiance.
Activations will include daily Happy Hours, Ladies Night and live jazz music in a setting that can hold up to 79 seats indoors and will eventually seat 28 outdoors on the deck— set to open in November.
Food Fund International is a family-owned restaurant business that has been prevalent in the market for the last 14 years. Venues include Taverna, The Meat Co., Bentley Kitchen, Tribes and Eat Greek.
