Giorgio Locatelli, a chef behind Michelin-starred restaurant Locanda Locatelli in London, added a new vegan menu this month to his restaurant Ronda Locatelli inside the Atlantis The Palm resort in Dubai. The menu draws from the chef’s Italian roots and features more than 40 plant-based dishes—the largest vegan menu to be offered by a non-vegan eatery in Dubai, according to local media outlet Aalmeen News Middle East. Diners can choose from appetizers such as insalata di spinaci (a spinach salad accented with vegan cheese and walnuts); eight different pizzas (made with dough that Locatelli ferments for 48 hours); spicy penne arrabbiata; and desserts, such as chocolate cake and coconut ice cream. Luxury resorts around the world are now catering to the changing demands of their clientele, including the Sands Resort Macao that added dishes made with vegan pork replacer Omnipork to 14 of its restaurants this week.
