Caterer Middle East - - News -

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.
