The Burj Al Arab Jumeirah restaurant everyone’s been talking about is now open and it’s a dining experience that will have guests well and truly hooked – no-fuss food, buzzing atmosphere, exceptional service and a stunningly designed venue.
Dubai, 25 September 2016: When the iconic Burj Al Arab Jumeirah announced it would be collaborating with critically acclaimed seafood connoisseur, Nathan Outlaw back in March, it was the talk of Dubai. Now the doors of Nathan Outlaw at Al Mahara are finally open, not only does the restaurant deliver on flavour, hospitality, interior design and atmosphere, but the overall dining experience takes people on a voyage of unmissable discovery.
A first international offering for England’s most exciting, multi-award winning chef, the new look Al Mahara is full of surprises that will leave people with lasting memories.
Bringing his unique style of cooking and relaxed hospitality to Burj Al Arab, Nathan, along with head chef Pete Biggs, has produced a restaurant that delivers top quality, simple dishes, packed with delicious and complex flavour combinations.
Nathan Outlaw at Al Mahara celebrates British cuisine. The menu is diverse and unique with each dish created specifically for Burj Al Arab. Using the very best ingredients from all over the world, including oysters from Cornwall, UK, his home county, Nathan lets the food do the talking. Key dishes include Lobster Risotto, Crispy Cooked Oysters with Caviar, Raw Scallops and Citrus Cured Brill.
Particularly British in style, the dessert menu includes a unique Sticky Toffee Pudding which is his 11 year old daughter’s recipe. Each dish on the dessert menu has the ‘Outlaw’ twist” and is served with lots of theatre.
Not only does Nathan Outlaw at Al Mahara deliver on flavour but it delivers on design too, creating an environment and space that gives diners the feeling they are in an underwater haven.
The stunning, signature floor-to-ceiling aquarium remains the centre piece, with its vibrant coral and more than 30 different species of exotic fish.
The restaurant has been opened up and now has an outdoor patio providing the perfect location for pre or post dinner drinks. With lounge seating for 40 and stunning sunset sea views, the patio has special glow-in-the-dark pebbles which absorb energy from the sun throughout the day and emit light at night.
The brand new Juna Bar is situated in the lounge area and is adorned with an acrylic surface that is beautifully textured and backlit. Here, delicious drinks which pair beautifully with the seafood are served to whet palates pre-dinner and quench thirst afterwards.
Nathan will be constantly involved with the restaurant and in Dubai at least seven times a year to consult with very talented head chef, Pete Biggs, restaurant manager Sharon McArthur and the team. Pete has been working with Nathan for the past 15 years in the UK and has a proven track record for producing extraordinary dishes.
