Dubai's vibrant dining scene has welcomed many a celebrity chef over the years; venues have opened up all over the city and it seems like every week, there's a new launch to look forward to. And while there is no dearth of options when it comes to taking your pick, few names truly stand out. Take, for example, miX by Alain Ducasse at Emerald Palace Kempinski Dubai. Brought to the emirate for the first time by the world-renowned Michelin-starred chef, the venue opened up its doors in 2018 and has, in a short time, become one of the hottest hangout destinations among Dubai's chic crowd. If you'd like to check it out, we recommend booking a table for Friday brunch for a sumptuous selection of classic and contemporary French flavours served in an unbeatable ambience. And when you save your spot as a myconcierge member, you can enjoy special discounts on the packages offered.
When it comes to the food, you know you can't expect anything less than extraordinary with a three-time Michelin-award-winning chef at the helm. Drawing inspiration from Alain Ducasse's London venue, The Dorchester, miX by Alain Ducasse offers an equally impressive ambience with an expansive space spread across three floors. Think fancy décor, – with a giant Fabergé egg stealing the spotlight – and spectacular views of the Arabian Gulf and Palm Jumeirah. And with the capacity to seat up to 400 diners, you can truly feel its sheer expanse.
During the cooler months, you have the option to dine al fresco on the sixth-floor rooftop, enjoying the gorgeous views with your meal. Or if you'd like something a little more bespoke for a special occasion, you could book yourself the private chef's table, hidden from view in the central dome of the hotel.
Brunch at miX by Alain Ducasse is a truly spirited affair and sees a rich buffet alongside a selection of plated dishes served to your table. The menu champions local produce and changes in accordance with the season, but you can expect to find signatures like the lamb shoulder, roasted corn-fed chicken, fresh lobster, dried pasta with black truffle as well as sea bass with lemon and capers.
Those with a sweet tooth can tuck into the likes of cheesecake, date souffle with labneh sorbet and chocolate pizza. And you can enjoy all of this and more with a wide selection of inventive beverages, sure to make your dining experience truly memorable.
