Ibiza-born hotspot IT restaurant is opening in Riyadh

It will open alongside global hotspots Billionaire, Roka and Signor Sassi in Al Sulimaniyah…

Riyadh’s Al Sulimaniyah area is already home to a gourmet collection of upscale restaurants, but a new name opening soon is set to add to the culinary credentials of this foodie hotspot. Hailing from Ibiza and now located in foodie cities like London, Mykonos and Milan is IT restaurant, and it’s opening soon in Riyadh.

Just up the road from Billionaire in Al Sulimaniyah, IT is known for serving up a masterful menu of Mediterranean dishes against the backdrop of stylish interiors and a curated music programme that dictates the lively ambience. The menu at IT, which takes the best bits from Italy’s gourmet gastronomy and fuses it with the vibrant flavours of the Balearics, is masterminded by chef Nino Di Costanzo. The man behind the menu is in charge of the culinary direction across IT restaurants in Ibiza, London, Porto Cervo, Tulum, Mykonos and Milan.

Alongside IT Riyadh, the brand is also planning to open in Dubai early next year. IT Dubai will debut as one of 20 restaurants at East Park in the city’s Trade Center area.
