CateringNews Middle East - - What's Hot? -

The Royal Atlantis Re­sort & Res­i­dences has an­nounced that Din­ner by He­ston Blu­men­thal will be the first named restau­rant to open within the prop­erty in 2019.

The Royal Atlantis Re­sort & Res­i­dences will of­fer 231 lux­ury apart­ments com­prised of two, three, four and five-bed­room res­i­dences in­clud­ing sky­courts, pent­houses and gar­den suites, rang­ing from 1,400 to 17,000 square feet as well as 795 rooms and suites.

“I am truly ex­cited about open­ing in this in­cred­i­ble lo­ca­tion”, said Blu­men­thal.

“It is not of­ten that an op­por­tu­nity in such a per­fect space comes along. The back­drop is out­stand­ing and the views of the Dubai sky­line over the Per­sian Gulf are quite unique. Ash­ley [Palmer-watts] and I are look­ing for­ward to cre­at­ing some­thing quite spe­cial for our guests to en­joy.”

The idea be­hind Din­ner stems from He­ston Blu­men­thal’s fas­ci­na­tion with his­tory and gas­tron­omy, which was trig­gered in the late 90’s af­ter read­ing a 15-cen­tury man­u­script known as The Vivendier.

What started as an ex­er­cise in cu­rios­ity trig­gered al­most 20 years of re­search and dis­cov­ery, with his­toric in­spired dishes ap­pear­ing on the menu of The Fat Duck in Bray, United King­dom. When the op­por­tu­nity arose to open a restau­rant in Lon­don the idea of Din­ner be­gan to emerge and in Jan­uary 2011 Din­ner by He­ston Blu­men­thal opened its doors un­der the lead­er­ship of chef di­rec­tor Ash­ley Palmer­watts. The two chefs cre­ated a menu in­spired by the tastes and flavours of Britain, from the farm­ers’ ta­ble to the royal courts of Eng­land.

Serge Zaalof, chief op­er­at­ing of­fi­cer for Atlantis Re­sorts & Res­i­dences said: “Sim­i­lar to Atlantis, The Palm, the su­perb culi­nary of­fer­ing at The Royal Atlantis Re­sort & Res­i­dences will lie at the prop­erty’s heart.

“This is the first of many ex­cit­ing culi­nary in­tro­duc­tions and we look for­ward to wow­ing our guests and res­i­dents with what is sure to be one of the most talked about restau­rants in the re­gion. We look for­ward to work­ing with He­ston and the team on this ex­cit­ing launch.”
