Monaco-based Sass Cafe has announced its first UAE outlet will soft-open on March 19 at Al Fattan Currency House in Dubai International Financial Centre.
The launch sees restaurateur Salvador “Sassa” Treves and and son Samy Sass partner with Bulldozer Group for their first venue outside Monaco.
The restaurant will feature a South of France menu, with signature dishes including carpaccio de loup de mer et vinaigrette truffles (sea bass carpaccio with lime and truffle vinaigrette), filet de saint pierre grilles sauces romanesco (grilled john dory with mixed herbs and romanesco sauce) and filet de boeuf a la Sassa (Sassa beef fillet with smoked garlic and tomato relish).
The restaurant also includes a piano bar, which will host artists flown in from Monaco, along with a resident DJ.
Guests will also enjoy views of the Burj Khalifa and downtown Dubai from the restaurant’s expansive terrace.
Bulldozer Group partner Evgeny Kuzin said: “We are very excited to be opening the first overseas Sass Café location here in the UAE. With the success of the Sass Café brand in Monaco and the jet-setting crowd of Dubai, we have no doubt that expansion into the region will be highly successful and prove popular.”
