The charming Parisian restaurant serves sandwiches and salads.
When Evgeny Kuzin and Chef Izu Ani open a restaurant, you know it’s going to be something special. The pair are behind some of Dubai’s biggest hospitality hits, which include Alaya, Gaia and La Maison Ani. Now, they have launched their latest venture: La Petite Ani in DIFC, which is set to open later this month.
La Petite Ani is an extension of La Maison Ani, a French-Mediterranean restaurant, which opened in 2022. Located on the ground floor of DIFC – Gate Avenue, the new venture draws its inspiration from the streets of Paris, and is aiming to bring that French charm to the UAE. Like many of Chef Izu’s ventures, La Petite Ani is a chic spot and an ode to his passion for travel.
La Petite Ani serves French-Mediterranean cuisine. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, the menu ranges from La Maison Ani favourites to on-the-go dishes. The menu includes hot dishes, egg options, healthy salads, fresh sandwiches, and the signature dish, Croque Monsieur. In true Parisian-style, there are freshly baked pastries and viennoiseries, from afternoon pick-me-ups to after-work treats. Plus, drinks cover organic-roast coffee, juices and teas.
If you’re working from a desk or staying at home, the menu will also be available to order for delivery. The brand prides itself on creating thoughtfully packaged dishes, which have been designed to travel well from kitchen to door without compromising on quality. We spotted pretty pastries, beautifully designed packages and a pink, pastel colour scheme.
