SPONSORED: Easter celebrations, Iftar set menus and more await at the Palm West Beach outpost.
With both Ramadan and Easter on the horizon, it’s a festive time in the city, and Jones the Grocer is helping set the mood with everything from curated dining packages to dedicated set menus. Elsewhere, we’ve got our eyes on pizza and steak specials dedicated to foodies – just because. Here, we reveal everything worth looking forward to at the Palm West Beach outpost of Jones the Grocer.
Break Your Fast at Jones
This Ramadan, break your fast with loved ones over a three-course set menu at Jones the Grocer’s beachside setting, the perfect site for a tranquil Iftar. You’ll quench your thirst with a cold glass of mango and lime kaffir fizz, followed by a serving of Jones’ spiced lentil soup. For the main event, diners can choose between lamb shank with truffle gratin or harissa chicken, and end on a sweet note with dessert classics such as saffron milk cake or the always-popular ‘Honey, I’m Home’. Iftar is priced AED 199 per person, inclusive of beverages, and served from sunset until 9pm.
All Hopped Up for Easter
Sink your toes in the sand and frolic around the beach with friends and family, where a crackin’ Easter weekend celebration awaits from 16 to 18 April. You’ll feast on a set menu that’s perfect for sharing – it features Jones classics such as ‘We Meat Again’ for the steak lover, ‘King of the Catch’, and ‘Salmon Ahoy!’ for seafood enthusiasts. Sweet cravings, meanwhile, will be satiated with servings of ‘Honey, I’m Home’ and ‘Work of Tart’. Bonus: fur babies are welcome as the Palm West Beach branch is proudly pet-friendly. The Easter package is priced at AED 199 per person, inclusive of soft drinks, while kids will be able to dine from a special à la carte menu.
Meat Me by the Beach
If your concept of date night is rooted in a classic steak dinner with a bottle of grape, this one’s for you. The Meat Me by the Beach special entails a 200g Aussie striploin and a choice from two rubs: an outback dry rub with chilli finish or a Melbourne café dry rub with Jones’ signature coffee. And because sides make or break a steak dinner, you can indulge in the likes of thick-cut steak chips, grilled Portobello mushrooms, roasted tomatoes, and a green peppercorn jus that you can drizzle on top. Served from 4pm to midnight on Wednesdays, the steak special is priced AED 349 per couple, inclusive of two steaks with sides and a bottle of grape.
Sip, Slice and Sunset
Sunsets are made better with a pizza-and-grape deal that’s available daily from 4pm to midnight. Here, the hand-tossed pizzas are cooked in a special wood-fired oven, resulting in slices that are light with a perfect char and topped with all the good stuff. And with eight signature flavours to choose from, there’s bound to be a slice calling out to you. The Sip, Slice and Sunset package is priced AED 279 per couple, inclusive of two wood-fired pizzas and a bottle of grape.
