What’s it like: Before I get started, please proceed with an open mind. I know you may think Cavalli is a flash nightclub suited to the high-end partygoers, but as was I, you’ll be pleasantly surprised to find the dining options at Cavalli are fantastic – and with its recently launched new menu, now more accessible. The new prices are extremely reasonable, and no more than you’d pay on any other evening out. Inside, the atmosphere is relaxing and elegant – you’d not feel out of place if you fancied dressing up. For dinner, I enjoyed a starter (that I want to go back for) of fresh, deliciously creamy Italian burrata with tomato confit, quinoa and pomegranate, followed by succulent lamb that was served with broccoli, spinach puree and truffle cacciatora sauce. Despite being quite full at this point, the ‘chocolate surprise’ that was to come for dessert was irresistible – incredibly mourish (and Instagram video worthy!). Paired with craft cocktails, this was a gorgeous dinner – ideal for a special night out with you partner or friends – especially if you’re looking for a dance afterwards!
