Award-winning Argentinian restaurant Sucre opens in Dubai’s DIFC

The flagship featured on Latin America’s 50 Best Restaurants

A partnership between world-renowned chef Fernando Trocca and mixologist Tato Giovannoni, Sucre has now opened its first Middle East outpost in Dubai’s DIFC district.

Since its launch in 2001 in Buenos Aires, Sucre has been a leading force in contemporary Latin American cuisine. A master of open-fire cooking, chef Trocca combines traditional techniques from the South American continent with global influences. 

Sucre’s menu features carefully sourced, high quality ingredients prepared in exciting arrangements, blending Italian, Spanish and Latin American influences. Guests can expect choices ranging from classic king crab tostada to Argentinian bone-in-ribeye, squid ink paella and monkfish tail with XO sauce and black beans. Diners will also find the restaurant’s version of an empanada, a South American staple, made with aged cheese and onions.

Speaking about the Dubai opening, Trocca said: “My vision for Sucre Dubai is to continue developing the very concept that has permeated throughout my career, the urge to translate the essence of my roots, family and home country into the language of  a universal, cosmopolitan diner.”

Considered one of South America’s most celebrated bar operators and awarded one of the world’s best bartenders, Renato ‘Tato’ Giovannoni has played an integral role in the success of Sucre. Guests can expect a cocktail menu reflecting the spirit and rebellion of this period, featuring eccentric and passionate cocktail mixes.

The venue will feature a bar, lounge, terrace and restaurant including an evolving roster of resident bands to bring Latin beats to the heart of Dubai.
