Dubai,03 April 2016: Jumeirah Emirates Towers will celebrate the gastronomic diversity of the Americas during a cross-continental culinary tour across three of the five-star property’s world-class outlets during April and May.
Following President Obama’s recent historic trip to Cuba, The Rib Room celebrates the launch of its new USA-inspired dinner menu with the visit of one of Cuba’s foremost experts in cigars; Alfie’s restaurant offers an exploration of classic American cocktails; and Mundo heads south with a new Friday bunch concept inspired by the diverse flavours of Latin America.
Sven Wiedenhaupt, General Manager, Jumeirah Emirates Towers, said: “In terms of ingredients, culinary style and taste, there is a tremendous amount of diversity, vitality and energy across the North and South American continents. Our focus on ‘The Americas’ will incorporate numerous gastronomy touchpoints – from Boston to Bogota, Chicago to Cusco, Manhattan to Mexico and everywhere in between – providing the ultimate road-trip of flavours.”
The Rib Room
Launching on Friday 1 April, The Rib Room’s revamped dinner menu is a journey across the States, with signature dishes including wild Alaskan halibut, cedar grilled Maine lobster, halal-certified American Kobe beef from Idaho’s Snake River Farms and prime black Angus beef from Kansas’ Creekstone Farms. Side dishes include pretzel fried green potatoes, dirty mash and Dorito crusted onion rings. On 12 and 29 April, and 5 and 26 May, diners can finish their meal in style in The Rib Room Bar with a famous Partagas Cuban Cigar hand-rolled by the Senior Quality Controller from the Partagas factory in Havana. A free cigar will be offered with every cigar purchased.
The Rib Room’s celebration of the USA continues with the launch of weekly ‘Bourbon and Beef’ nights on Fridays, where guests can enjoy a full rack of Bourbon BBQ beef ribs with a side of mac’n’cheese and corn on the cob, expertly paired with a shot of fine Bourbon for AED 250.
The Rib Room has also launched a new business lunch Sunday-Thursday, where guests can opt for a 20-minute, one course for AED 60, a 40-minute, two course option for AED 120, or the one-hour, three course option for AED150.
From Friday 8 April, Mundo turns up the heat with the launch of its new Latin American brunch of crab cakes, South American ceviche; churrasco; and Peruvian inspired sushi including handmade shrimp, tuna, avocado and sweet potato rolls.
