Vienna, Jun 10 (EFE).- Real Madrid’s new star David Alaba has opened the doors to his new restaurant in his native city Vienna.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, DaRose had to postpone its launch by one year, but has already welcomed many guests since opening a week ago.
‘Moments to live, nights to remember’ is the theme Alaba has chosen for his new restaurant, which is in the modern campus of the Vienna University of Economic and Business.
A menu that fuses Mediterranean and Singaporean flavors, DaRose guests are invited on a culinary journey from tapas style starters as a tribute to Spain, to steaks, fish and burgers. Visitors can also enjoy cocktails and live music.
DaRose is a family run business idea that was born four years ago, when Alaba’s parents contacted their friend and Hungarian chef András Sebestyén to be DaRose’s head chef.
“They really liked his cooking and proposed the idea of the restaurant, which is based on a friendship between the family and the chef,” DaRose’s head of service Gabor Sulyok told Efe.
Four years later, the player’s gastro vision finally came to life.
The family touch runs through the restaurant’s name as well. DaRose is a combination of David and Rose May, his sister who is a singer.
The restaurant has an urban and modern vibe, with black walls, warm colored sofas and hundreds of light bulbs hanging from the ceiling. EFE
