New aperitivo menu launches at fancy Abu Dhabi bar

We’ve had the breakfast, demolished the brunch, polished off lunch and now we’re peckish, but how to satisfy those hunger cravings without ruining dinner?

Behold the Italian tradition of aperitivo, and two hours of picking at tasty finger food. An ingenious way to legitimise stuffing your face pre-dinner.

The Manhattan Lounge is now offering an aperitivo snacking sesh every Wednesday between 6pm and 8pm, for a couple of hours of winding down after work without hunger pains gnawing at your insides.

The bits are free for anyone who partakes in two drinks from the bar menu during that time.

The St. Regis Saadiyat Island Resort, Abu Dhabi have taken inspiration from the Italian custom (we’re just happy there’s a name for the post-office bingeing).

Signature bites from the aperitivo menu include marinated olives and artichoke, stuffed peppadew, salami, cured meats, grissini and parmesan chunks. Other cold starters featured on the menu are tuna tartare and focaccia sandwiches.

If you’re looking for hot canapés, you’re sure to enjoy the truffle arancini, and range of signature pizzas and ravioli along with the most stunning vistas at dusk… And now we’re hungry

What do you call pre-dinner feasting, again? Oh yes… indulging. 

Prices vary. Wed, 6pm-8pm. The St. Regis Saadiyat Island Resort, Abu Dhabi, Saadiyat Island (02 498 8888).
