Paradiso Nicole et Pierre is more than a restaurant : it is a celebration of life helmed by the culinary sensation Nicole Rubi, the woman behind La Petite Maison (de Nicole) and tripler Michelin star Chef Pierre Gagnaire. A homage to the Mediterranean, Italy and the world of cinema, Paradiso Nicole et Pierre extends its welcoming gourmet ambience from the famous Croisette to the shores of Abu Dhabi. With its extensive terrace and its sun-drenched decor designed by Italian architects Vudafieri-Saverino Partners, the restaurant is set to become a must on the culinary scene in Abu Dhabi.
The Art of Italian Aperitivo at Paradiso.
“When in Rome, do as the Romans do” is one of those maxims that tends to come in handy wherever you go, especially in Italy, and especially when it’s Aperitivo o’clock. Perhaps our favorite Italian tradition is the aperitivo, an event that combines the best of both worlds, drink and a light meal at the end of a workday, prepping us for dinner time. Despite the intensely regional character of Italian culture, this is one observance, along with Sunday soccer, that you will find in almost every single town and city in the peninsula and at Paradiso! We think it is a great way to experience the destination, to people-watch, to unwind with a friends and colleagues to the sounds of our resident DJ after a long day of work or sightseeing.
Aperitivo Paradiso is available daily from 5:30 PM to 7:30 PM and it includes a selection of the canapes of the day with Paradiso’s signature Aperol Spritz and farandole of perfumes by our famous alchemist Emmanuel Balestra. On the side, guests can mix it up with Paradiso’s Italian tapas and traditional focaccia.
