Introducing a second Michelin-star chef into the culinary mix, Caesars Bluewaters Dubai opens modern Japanese restaurant Paru in partnership with award-winning Michelin-star Chef Akira Back (Sung Ook Back).
Located on a stunning rooftop at Caesars Resort Bluewaters Dubai, with breath-taking views across two spectacular terraces, the new eatery offers an eclectic menu of modern Japanese dishes masterfully created by Back. Paru offers guests something unique – a buzzing bar, chilled out lounge and modern restaurant, all in one slickly-designed space.
Divided into three distinct areas, the journey into Paru starts with the impressive light-filled dining room. An intricate ceiling of stark white origami flowers lit with turquoise blue pays homage to the restaurant’s Japanese roots and mirrors ocean views seen from its towering glass wall. Suspended from the ceiling, Layer a flowing steel and crystal sculpture with strings of luminous orbs nods to the restaurant’s name, meaning ‘pearl’ in Japanese.
Framing the bar and sushi counter, a modern mural – alluding to art as a form of love – was designed by Back’s artist mother, adding a dramatic focal point for those perched beneath it. Guests can watch chefs at work while indulging in a selection of delicacies from the menu or finding comfort in a more chilled out meal in lounge seating located by the floor-to-ceiling windows. For those who want to dine ‘Japanese-style’, a tall central long table creates the perfect opportunity.
Outside, Paru offers guests the choice of two alfresco terraces, both designed for dining and the quintessential sundowner experience. Flanked by bonsai trees, the dining terrace creates the ideal chance to tuck into the modern Japanese menu, while taking in Jumeirah Beach Residence’s skyline. On the other side, the lounge terrace with cushioned wicker sofas and low tables is a more chilled affair, serving shisha every evening. It boasts sweeping views of the glittering Arabian Gulf, city skyscrapers and curving fronds of Palm Jumeirah.
Created by Chef Back, Paru’s eclectic menu reflects the culinary landscape of modern Japan. Having trained in Japan for many years, Back is known for bringing a sense of adventure to his culinary creations, taking traditional flavours and techniques from the region and giving them his own signature twist.
