Shimmers on the Beach reopens at Madinat Jumeirah
Dubai, 22 February 2016: Madinat Jumeirah, the Arabian Resort of Dubai, has reopened Shimmers on the Beach in Jumeirah Mina A’Salam.
The restaurant offers a casual chic atmosphere during the day and an elegant place to dine at night. The menu comprises fresh Mediterranean cuisine by Greek Chef Ilias Kokoroskos.
During the course of the eight month refurbishment, new textiles, furniture and accessories were fitted to create a Mediterranean beachside concept. The design was carried out by the locally based interior designer, Kristina Zanic.
The restaurant’s colour scheme of beige beach tones and ocean blue tints blends in with the surroundings and the white washed wood structures provide the restaurant with shade. Guests can admire remarkable views of Burj Al Arab Jumeirah in a relaxed atmosphere complemented by lounge music and a refreshing sea breeze. A casual lunch or dinner can be enjoyed either from the main area or guests can sink into the comfortable bean bag cushions and dine from low tables.
Chef Ilias brings years of experience and his flair for innovation is evident in the new menu. Tempting lunch options include wild green pita with feta cheese honey and yoghurt; refreshing beetroot salad and fried calamari with quinoa. Highlights on the dinner menu include the tuna ceviche and the Patagonian toothfish with white fennel.
Shimmers at Jumeirah Mina A’Salam is open daily for lunch from 12 – 5 pm; for dinner from 7 – 11:30pm and the lounge is open from 12 pm - 1:30 am.
