Heston Blumenthal to open Dubai restaurant in 2019

World-renowned chef Heston Blumenthal will open a restaurant in the Royal Atlantis Resort & Residences in 2019, it was announced on Monday, accordning to Arabian Business Newsletter.

Dinner by Heston Blumenthal is the first named restaurant to open within the property and will be the third outpost of the culinary concept developed by the Michelin-star chef after London and Melbourne.

The Royal Atlantis Resort & Residences will offer 231 luxury apartments comprised of two, three, four and five-bedroom residences including Skycourts, Penthouses and Garden Suites, ranging from 1,400 to 17,000 square feet as well as 795 rooms and suites.

Located on the crescent of The Palm next to the iconic Atlantis, The Palm resort, Dinner by Heston Blumenthal will be located in the heart of the resort and will include a dedicated bar, two outside terraces and a private dining room.

The restaurant will offer contemporary dishes inspired by historic gastronomic recipes dating back to the 1300’s.

“I am truly excited about opening in this incredible location. It is not often that an opportunity in such a perfect space comes along. The backdrop is outstanding and the views of the Dubai skyline over the Gulf are quite unique," said Blumenthal.

He said the idea behind Dinner stems from his fascination with history and gastronomy, which was triggered in the late 90s after reading a 15-century manuscript known as The Vivendier.

Dinner, which offers highly modern dishes inspired by a gastronomic insight from Medieval to Victorian, won 2 Michelin stars in 2012.

Serge Zaalof, chief operating officer for Atlantis Resorts & Residences said: “Similar to Atlantis, The Palm, the superb culinary offering at The Royal Atlantis Resort & Residences will lie at the property’s heart. This is the first of many exciting culinary introductions and we look forward to wowing our guests and residents with what is sure to be one of the most talked about restaurants in the region.

"We look forward to working with Heston and the team on this exciting launch."¨
