Cuisine meets culture

Worlds collide at Roberto’s Abu Dhabi on 25th April when the Italian eatery joins forces with master pianist Scipione Sangiovanni for a night of culture and great cooking. Inspired by the seven fundamental traits of food, including taste, flavour, texture and balance, culinary advisor Enrico Bartolini has designed a six-course menu, while Sangiovanni will accompany the meal in a seven-note harmony. Dishes include slow-cooked baby lamb shoulder with black truffle, calamari with artichokes and mint and an apple tarte tatin. From AED 495. The Galleria, Al Maryah Island. 7.30pm–11pm.
