Atlantis Dubai and Major Food Group to Launch Iconic Carbone Restaurant at Atlantis The Royal

Atlantis Dubai and Major Food Group to Launch Iconic Carbone Restaurant at Atlantis The Royal

Exciting news for Dubai's culinary scene: Atlantis Dubai has partnered with the renowned Major Food Group to bring the iconic Carbone restaurant to Atlantis The Royal. Set to open in the first quarter of 2025, Carbone will introduce its world-class, New York-style Italian cuisine to the city for the first time.

Carbone, described by Vanity Fair as “the most celebrity-studded restaurant on earth,” first made waves over a decade ago in downtown Manhattan. It quickly gained acclaim for its exceptional food and vibrant atmosphere. The New Yorker praised its offerings as “absolutely perfect,” and the New York Times likened the dining experience to a “fancy red-sauce joint as directed by Quentin Tarantino.”


The restaurant’s menu pays homage to mid-century New York-style Italian cuisine, featuring classic dishes like Caesar Salad, Linguini Vongole, Chicken Scarpariello, and Veal Parmesan. Dubai diners can look forward to enjoying these signature dishes, including the sensational Spicy Rigatoni, all served by tuxedo-clad service captains. The restaurant's design will transport guests back to 1950s New York, with velvety jewel-tone nooks, damask-upholstered walls, Venetian glass mirrors, fine artwork, and a lively terrace.

Carbone Dubai will be the ninth location in Major Food Group’s (MFG) portfolio, which includes other global hotspots such as Hong Kong, Las Vegas, Miami, Dallas, Doha, Riyadh, and two outposts in New York City. Founded by Mario Carbone, Jeff Zalaznick, and Rich Torrisi, MFG now operates over 50 restaurants, bars, private clubs, and hotels, known for their glamour, meticulous execution, and exceptional hospitality.


Jeff Zalaznick, Co-Founder of Major Food Group, expressed his enthusiasm: “It’s an incredible honour to partner with Atlantis Dubai to bring the world’s most exciting and exceptional Italian restaurant to a property that will no doubt raise the bar for luxury hospitality globally. At Carbone Dubai, we will deliver the style, energy, and unparalleled cuisine that are synonymous with the brand, while creating a restaurant carefully tailored to this extraordinary city.”

Tim Kelly, President of Atlantis, echoed this sentiment: “We look forward to Carbone joining the greatest collection of world-class restaurants and iconic dining experiences found in one destination. Kerzner International and Atlantis Dubai continue to attract the biggest players in the world of gastronomy, delivering our guests experiences that cannot be found anywhere else in the world. We are proud of our partnership with Major Food Group.”


With its celebrated history and a menu beloved by celebrities and food enthusiasts alike, Carbone’s arrival in Dubai is poised to be a major event. The restaurant is expected to become a hotspot, attracting both locals and tourists eager to sample its famed dishes and enjoy its luxurious setting.

As anticipation builds for its opening in early 2025, Carbone’s debut at Atlantis The Royal is set to elevate Dubai's dining scene, offering an unparalleled experience that combines the essence of New York's iconic eatery with the opulence of Dubai.
