Michelin-starred chef, Daniel Boulud, to open first Dubai restaurant in September
Good news for UAE gourmands
It's our first new restaurant opening news in a while, so we're happy it's a such a finger-licking piece of information. Brasserie Boulud, a new dining concept by Daniel Boulud - chef-owner of award-winning restaurants around the globe - is set to open its doors this September within Sofitel Dubai Wafi. Inspired by the French art de vivre, Boulud's very first restaurant in the Middle East will offer French-inspired contemporary cuisine, rooted in tradition.
While Boulud hails from outside Lyon, France, it is in New York, that he has truly mastered the dining scene and is today considered one of America's leading culinary authorities. Renowned for the modern appeal he adds to soulful cooking in authentic French classics, he has continuously evolved his cuisine and expanded his dining concepts in Washington DC, Miami, Palm Beach, Toronto, Montreal, London, Singapore, and now Dubai.
Drawing on his vast culinary knowledge, Boulud has chosen French Chef de Cuisine Nicolas Lemoyne to take the helm of Brasserie Boulud. Bringing more than 15 years of experience under his chef's apron including working at Restaurant Daniel, Boulud's flagship restaurant in New York, Lemoyne will bring a completely new French experience to Dubai's current dining scene. The menu is inspired by the rhythm of the seasons and the finest ingredients, with specialties such as Melon Soup with Shrimp and Lemongrass; Homemade Duck and Foie Gras Rillette; Terrine of Spiced Lamb with Eggplant; Dover Sole Veronique with Romanesco Broccoli; BB Burger with Tomato Confit, Arugula and Raclette Cheese; Chicken Tagine with Saffron Cauliflower and Green Olives; Apricot Clafoutis with Pistachio; and Tarte au Chocolat et Framboises.
When it comes to eating and drinking well, Dubai's dining scene is renowned for its diverse and globally driven nature. However, Brasserie Boulud is hoping to be a unique destination - a bastion of taste and the true meaning of gastronomie française.
