Iconic Restaurant Carbone is Heading to Atlantis The Royal in 2025

Atlantis Dubai is joining forces with the Major Food Group to bring CARBONE’s New York-style Italian cuisine to Dubai’s Atlantis The Royal in the first quarter of 2025.

When the original location of CARBONE debuted just over a decade ago in downtown Manhattan, it was hailed as an instant classic that brought a much-needed jolt of energy and soul to the highest echelons of dining.

The New Yorker called the restaurant’s food “absolutely perfect”, and the New York Times described the concept as “a fancy red-sauce joint as directed by Quentin Tarantino, possessing a technical prowess that can make you giddy and an instinct for sheer entertainment that makes a lot of other restaurants seem like earnest, unimaginative drones.”

The cuisine at CARBONE pays homage to the storied legacy of the mid-century, New York-style Italian restaurant but draws on the highest calibre of technique to elevate classic dishes such as Caesar Salad, Linguini Vongole, Chicken Scarpariello, and Veal Parmesan to unprecedented heights.

These famed signatures – including the sensational Spicy Rigatoni – will all feature on the Dubai menu.

They will be served by tuxedo-clad service captains in a sprawling dining room that will transport guests to 1950s New York. The stunning space will feature velvety jewel-tone nooks, damask-upholstered walls accented with Venetian glass mirrors, a curated collection of fine artwork – and a buzzing terrace.

CARBONE Dubai will mark the ninth CARBONE in MFG’s roster, following 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 a portfolio of over 50 restaurants, bars, private clubs, and hotels.

The luxury brand is known for building spaces that attract a wide audience – from neighbourhood regulars to boldfaced names in media, business, and entertainment – thanks to their sense of glamour, meticulous execution, peerless hospitality, and design contributions from leaders in the field.

Major Food Group Co-Founder Jeff Zalaznick commented, “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 – a mission that defines everything we do at MFG.

“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. Together with our friends at Atlantis, we look forward to making history.”

Tim Kelly, President of Atlantis, added, “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.”
