Our story


Taste of Italy by Heinz Beck is the celebrated  chef’s first casual restaurant concept, offering diners the chance to indulge in gourmet cuisine infused with his signature, Michelin-rated twist on Italian style home cooking.

“I was approached many times for different concepts,” Chef Heinz Beck said. “But for me it’s not to do business. For me it is about the right connection between people who believe in what they are doing; people who have feelings and want to make the difference.”

Marka’s Managing Director for Hospitality, Ravi Chandran also spoke about the genesis of the collaboration with Heinz Beck, who has fine dining establishments in Tokyo, Portugal and across Italy – Rome’s only 3 Michelin stars La Pergola, Heinz Beck Seasons at Ristorante Castello di Fighine, San Casciano dei Bagni both in Tuscany and Café Les Paillotes in Pescara:

“We were very inspired by his culinary accomplishments around the world and we wanted to bring in this real traditional Italian food, which is prepared in a professional way, to the heart of Dubai.”
