US-based Italian concept 800 Degrees Neapolitan Pizzeria has unveiled its latest branch in Riverland Dubai, a uniquely themed retail and dining destination at the heart of at Dubai Parks and Resorts.
Launched by franchise owner and managing director of Eaters LLC Manish Jeswani and the concept owner Anthony Carron alongside master pizzaiolo Rosario Accaria, 800 Degrees’ new branch with alfresco and indoor seating overlooks the river and is a perfect blend of casual and fine dining.
Made with specially sourced Napoli 00 flour and ingredients prepared freshly every morning, 800 Degrees’ traditional Neapolitan pizzas are baked to perfection in an almond wood-fired oven at 800° Fahrenheit. Customisable from the base up, one can either choose from a set menu of specialty pizzas or create one’s own pizza for a truly personalised feel. Apart from pizzas, 800 Degrees also hosts a pasta station, a variety of salads, sides, gelato, Italian desserts, coffees and special Italian drinks.
“It’s so exciting after a year of being in Dubai having the privilege of inaugurating in such a large project like the Dubai Parks and Resorts,” says Jeswani. “We are excited to work alongside DXB Entertainments, the owner of Dubai Parks and Resorts. With such an exceptional view of the river and a romantic outdoor as well as indoor seating, 800 Degrees is really on the map here as the place to be for an authentic Italian experience, from walking over romantic bridges to dining by the river and the hustle-bustle of the city. We look forward to the response of the public visiting the park to our latest branch opening here.”
“Dubai Parks and Resorts is a one-stop destination for 365 days of fun, frolic and adventure. Dubai Parks and Resorts is the Middle East’s largest integrated theme park destination, featuring MOTIONGATE Dubai, Bollywood Park Dubai and LEGOLAND Dubai and LEGOLAND Water Park, as well as Lapita Hotel, all opening this year. The entire destination is connected by Riverland Dubai, a uniquely themed retail and dining destination at the heart of Dubai Parks and Resorts that is free for all to enjoy. This is a very sought-after location for positioning restaurant chains as not only is the view spectacular, but its centred location attracts large crowds. 800 Degrees is one such restaurant that is directly linked over the river, and we share a special relationship with the franchise, wishing them success with our synergy in Dubai Parks and Resorts,” adds Klaus Assmann, vice president hospitality and retail, DXB Entertainments.
