Alain Ducasse launches first Dubai restaurant
Mix Dubai is over three floors at the Emerald Palace Kempinski
Internationally acclaimed French chef Alain Ducasse has launched his first restaurant in the UAE at the Emerald Palace Kempinski, Palm Jumeirah.
Spread over three floors, Mix Dubai has a number of distinct zones including a private chef’s table, bar and lounge area, and the main restaurant.
The design of Mix Dubai was a result of a close collaboration between Ducasse and Manuel Clavel of Clavel Architecture and Interior Design to create a luxurious and elegant feel, with a large, golden Faberge egg ,which sits inside the dome of the hotel, the centrepiece.
Ducasse has crafted a menu which includes marinated raw blue shrimps, caviar, panseared duck foie gras, dolce forte sauce and sea scallops, lettuce cream and white truffles.
In charge on a day-to-day basis is chef de cuisine Hugues Gerard, working alongside pastry chef Douglas Oberson.
The menu is inspired by French cuisine but with both local and international influences to cater to the cosmopolitan Dubai crowd, and will change according to the season.
Seating 400 covers, Mix Dubai also features multiple terraces boasting views of Dubai with the sunset on one side and the skyline of the Palm Jumeirah on the other.
