Brasserie Boulud will open in Sofitel Dubai Wafi this September.
Brasserie Boulud, the new dining concept by Daniel Boulud is set to open its doors this September within the new Sofitel Dubai Wafi. Inspired by the French art de vivre, Boulud’s very first restaurant in the Middle East will offer French-inspired contemporary cuisine that is rooted in tradition.
While Boulud hails from outside Lyon, France, he is today considered one of America’s leading culinary authorities. Renowned for the modern appeal he adds to his soulful cooking of authentic French classics, Boulud has expanded his dining concepts in Washington DC, Miami, Palm Beach, Toronto, Montreal, London, Singapore and now Dubai.
Drawing on his vast culinary knowledge, Boulud has chosen French chef de cuisine Nicolas Lemoyne to take the helm of Brasserie Boulud. Bringing more than 15 years of culinary experience that includes working at Restaurant Daniel, Boulud’s flagship restaurant in New York, Lemoyne will bring a completely new French experience to the Dubai dining scene. The menu is inspired by the rhythm of the seasons and the finest ingredients, with specialities such as Melon Soup with Shrimp and Lemongrass; Homemade Duck and Foie Gras Rillette; Terrine of Spiced Lamb with Eggplant; Dover Sole Veronique with Romanesco Broccoli; BB Burger with Tomato Confit, Arugula and Raclette Cheese; Chicken Tagine with Saffron Cauliflower and Green Olives; Apricot Clafoutis with Pistachio; and Tarte au Chocolat et Framboises.
The décor of Brasserie Boulud intends to capture the imagination of the most discerning of diners, with a distinct art deco design apparent throughout the venue. Diners eyes will immediately gravitate towards the soaring mirrored ceiling accentuated by modern chandeliers, while the neutral colour palette will provide an understated, stylish and relaxed atmosphere. An open kitchen will offer a multi-sensory dining experience as the chefs showcase their skills.
Brasserie Boulud is the first restaurant to be announced at the Sofitel Dubai Wafi. This sophisticated and chic address elegantly merges modern French art de vivre and ancient Egyptian heritage with the essence and culture of the UAE.
