Diners can expect homegrown concepts, signature outlets and several international brands.
Earlier this month, we shared news of the debut of the country’s first Marriott Resort, which will open on the trunk of Palm Jumeriah in December. In addition to 608 thoughtfully designed guestrooms and suites, we know that the sprawling beach resort will feature ten dining venues encompassing flavours and influences from the likes of Italy, Japan, Korea, Peru and the Levant – collectively diversifying the city’s dining scene in the process.
Read on for the full line-up of restaurants, bars and lounges.
Renowned Peruvian Nikkei rooftop restaurant and bar, Above Eleven will mark the brand’s first location outside of Asia and is expected to open at Marriott Resort Palm Jumeirah in early 2023. Bringing a unique blend of Peruvian spirit, Japanese precision and effortless New York soul, the restaurant’s open-air rooftop and panoramic Dubai skyline views will set the tone for sundowners and late-night revelry.
Bal Harbour Beach
Bringing a touch of Miami to Dubai, beachside hotspot Bal Harbour Beach will boast waterfront vistas and luxurious sun loungers on the shore of the Arabian Gulf. Expect light bites, poolside fare and a selection of tropical-inspired beverages.
The rustic yet chic trattoria Cucina, fuses Italian charm with a modern edge. Serving hand-made pasta and pan-fried pizza, Cucina is expected to deliver an authentic taste of Italy for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Here, guests can explore the deli brimming with fresh produce and premium Italian products, including freshly baked focaccia and schiacciata.
Gelateria by Cucina
Marriott Resort Palm Jumeirah’s in-house ice cream parlour, dessert bar and gelateria will serve a selection of silky gelato in a variety of alluring flavours. The traditionally made gelato includes striking savoury flavours such as limoncello and caviar, and San Marzano tomato finished with basil olive oil and creamy gorgonzola, walnut and aged balsamic.
Inspired by the Windstream that passes through Europe and North Africa and into the Levant, Levantera, will showcase a Mediterranean menu influenced by Greek, Turkish, Middle Eastern, Moroccan, Egyptian, French and Spanish cuisines. The day-to-night venue is ideal for families as it features a dedicated children’s buffet and a focus on health and sustainability.
An oasis of calm in the heart of the hotel, Marriott Resort Palm Jumeirah’s Lobby Lounge is the perfect place for guests to settle down to work or relax. The food and beverage menu features a signature tea and coffee experience in addition to exquisite cakes, pastries and made-for-Instagram tarts.
MYAMI Pool Bar & Lounge
While away the day at the American, Caribbean and Latino-inspired MYAMI Pool Bar & Lounge. Expect great food and drinks in equal measure with impressive mixologist-made cocktails, a swim-up bar and an unrivalled South Beach Miami mood. Menu highlights include tropical acai bowls, wagyu beef burgers and tender lobster rolls.
The FACT Award-winning Señor Pico offers an enticing combination of sun, sand, sea, superb food, sipping drinks and a sensational beachfront backdrop. The popular Mexican-Californian restaurant stays true to its San Francisco roots, serving fuss-free comfort food and craft drinks in a desirable beachfront location.
Smoki Moto Dubai
Set to open in 2023, the resort’s flagship restaurant Smoki Moto Dubai will be the first high-end Korean steakhouse in Dubai. The vibrant, urban design will encapsulate the energy of Korean cities, paired with cutting-edge dishes and tabletop barbeques bursting with bold flavours.
The hotel’s tenth venue will be unveiled in the new year. But we do know the concept is a much-loved and sorely missed homegrown restaurant.
It’s clear that the new resort will cater to all tastes, from lazy lunches and sunset aperitifs to experiential dinners.
At Marriott Resort Palm Jumeirah, a true culinary odyssey awaits.
