Celebrity chef-owner Daniel Boulud is officially opening his new restaurant Brasserie Boulud at Sofitel Dubai The Obelisk on October 29.
It is the first restaurant by the French chef in the Middle East. Offering French-inspired contemporary cuisine, Daniel Boulud will take centre stage in the open kitchen of Brasserie Boulud during the opening weekend.
Diners can expect contemporary classics including foie gras with orange, dry apricot and fig brioche, sole grenobloise with parsley, capers, cauliflower and broccoli, truffled duck leg confit with green lentils and root vegetables as well as dessert specialities such as Vacherin, French meringue with vanilla ice-cream from Tahiti and red fruits compote, saffron pear and pistachio tart and a selection of fine French cheese.
Originally from Lyon, chef Boulud is widely celebrated as one of America’s leading culinary authorities. Since arriving in New York City in 1982, he has continually evolved his cuisine and expanded his reach to properties across the US, as well as London, Toronto, Montreal, Singapore, and now Dubai.
His culinary empire has brought him many accolades, yet his inspiration remains grounded in the rhythm of the seasons. From his Michelin-starred flagship, Daniel, to his properties across the globe, Boulud’s signature remains the contemporary appeal he brings to dishes rooted in the French tradition.
The restaurant launch comes in the wake of a crisis for the UAE’s F&B industry, where a survey done by JLL revealed that 53% of restaurants in the Middle East have had to stop operations. In comparison, 41% of restaurants in Dubai had closed temporarily, during the lockdown in April-May.
