Sacci reinvigorated - The Westin Abu Dhabi Golf Resort and Spa
The recent visit by Michelin-starred Ron Blaauw signalled a change in the direction Sacci was heading - it added a much needed cool aspect to the restaurant. It was around that time too that I saw the new uniforms at Sacci. More importantly though, the last 9 months saw new Sacci Chef de Cuisine Leonardo Brancati create a new menu. Having tried his dishes when he cooked at BOA, I was, needless to say, excited about trying the new menu.
Value for money is the buzz phrase nowadays and while I was impressed by Sacci reading the market very well when they entered it a few years ago, they continue to get it right. This is clear when I see that they offer a Pasta /Risotto degustation - a choice of three pastas or risotto for 180AED. It is a no brainer. Tremendous value. It also ties in perfectly with Sacci's sharing concept. My daughter chooses the Fettucine with veal ragus, while I order the Ravioli, stuffed with cod and potatoes. Finally, the trio is completed by the Risotto with porcini mushrooms.
