A traditional Italian dining venue with an indoor setting during summer and an open-air terrace on cold season
Chef Federico knew he was going to be a chef since he was 13 years old, growing up in Abruzzo, Italy. At 17 he was recognised as one of the top three young chefs in Italy by the National Federation of Chefs, and became a qualified sommelier the following year. An international career followed, cooking in the Caribbean, Miami and the Middle East. Chef Federico has a philosophy of customer-centric adaptiveness – taking inspiration purely from what his diners want to see on their plates. Case in point: the hotel brunch concept at Mare Mare, Jumeirah at Saadiyat Island Resort has been formed entirely from guests’ feedback.
