Stay Tuned for L’Uliveto Fairmont Nile City’s Latest Italian Concept
Stay tuned for Fairmont Nile City’s latest Italian concept, L’Uliveto. Opening its doors this summer, L’Uliveto brings authentic local Italian ingredients in a symphony of flavors to satisfy all palates.
Named after an “olive grove,” one of the core ingredients of the Italian cuisine and produced in many regions in Italy. Olive oil is known to be the “king of ingredients” in this rich cuisine, it has long been considered sacred. The olive branch was often a symbol of abundance, glory, and peace. The leafy branches of the olive tree were ritually offered to deities and powerful figures as emblems of benediction and purification, and they were used to crown the victors of friendly games and bloody wars. Today, olive oil is still used in many religious ceremonies. Over the years, the olive has also been used to symbolize wisdom, fertility, power, and purity. The ancient Greeks smeared olive oil on their bodies and hair as a matter of grooming and good health. Olive oil was used to anoint kings and athletes. It was burnt in the sacred lamps of temples and was the "eternal flame" of the original Olympic games. Victors in these games were crowned with its leaves. Olive wreaths made of wild-olive leaves from a sacred tree were also used to crown the Olympic winner in honor of Zeus back in ancient times.
Bright, dynamic, crisp, and cool interior design with leather lounges and old wooden textures, the restaurant takes its inspiration from countries surrounding the Mediterranean. The greens and blues of nature where continents meet the sea are translated into the color scheme. The diversity in culture and tradition is present in interior elements from surrounding countries.
The all-day dining restaurant offers a lavish breakfast buffet in the early hours of the day, after which a herb display converts into a wine cellar and a coffee counter turns into a bar, transforming the restaurant into an elegant, comfortable, and inviting space for à la carte lunch and dinner as well as a hip bar serving specially curated cocktails. It’s more than just a meal, be the first to experience L’Uliveto’s timeless Italian specialties cooked from the heart.
