September 24 will see the opening of the restaurant which will serve a British seafood menu by Michelin-starred chef Nathan Outlaw
Dubai’s celebrated Burj Al Arab hotel has joined forces with Michelin-starred British chef Nathan Outlaw to relaunch its seafood restaurant Al Mahara as ‘Nathan Outlaw At Al Mahara’ on September 24.
The restaurant will serve British cuisine with dishes created especially for the iconic 7-star hotel.
“My style of cooking is one of simplicity but with complex flavour combinations, using top quality local, seasonal, responsibly-sourced ingredients. This is what people can expect from the menu. I want the seafood to shine and the taste to make the impact,” said Outlaw, adding desserts will play a starring role too.
Outlaw said signature dishes on the menu will include lobster risotto prepared with zesty oranges and fresh basil, crispy oysters and caviar featuring award winning Porthilly Oysters from the UK and sticky toffee pudding for dessert served with Jersey cream and dates stuffed with apple jam.
Other signature dishes will include freshly-harvested raw scallops with herb mayonnaise and tartare dressing as well as citrus cured brill with anchovy and smoked almonds.
The new-look Al Mahara is meant to have a ‘down to earth, high quality hospitality and a fun, buzzing atmosphere.’
Bookings are being taken for the restaurant, which will see the chef in the kitchen from 24th September until 3rd October with head chef Pete Biggs there all year round.
