STK Downtown among new openings at Address Downtown Dubai
Famed Turkish restaurant The Galliard will also be launched
A second branch of international steakhouse STK is due to open in Dubai soon, and we can’t wait.
STK Downtown has been in the pipeline for a while, but as the Address Downtown Dubai prepares to re-open this summer, the restaurant will launch, too.
STK will join a host of other restaurants and bars when Address Downtown Dubai re-opens post refurbishment this summer. One of which is The Galliard, which is well-known in Istanbul, boasting Turkish dishes as well as French and Spanish cuisine.
There will also be The Restaurant at Address Downtown, which is a similar take to The Restaurant at Address Boulevard – based around a town house. Diners can choose to eat in various “rooms” of the house, including lounge, dining room, library or kitchen.
Zeta is a Californian-Asian restaurant, with views over the Burj Khalifa, and for afternoon tea there will be the Lounge at Address Downtown. There’s also the Cigar Lounge. For drinks there’s Neos, perched on level 63 of the hotel, which is being billed as a “luxurious, lively lounge”.
A first Middle Eastern branch of the popular global steakhouse chain STK opened in the Rixos Premium JBR last year.
The American brand also has branches in Las Vegas, New York and London, and is famous for its top-notch steaks. Classic steakhouse options on the menu have had a modern makeover, with the various cuts of beef, including fillets, tenderloin, rib-eye, T-bone and Tomahawk, undoubtedly the stars of the show. There are also burgers and braised beef short rib being served up, with sides including Parmesan truffle fries and mac ‘n’ cheese.
Described as a “high-energy dining and drinks venue offering the ultimate blend of food-meets-party”, the new location will boast views of the Burj Khalifa, as well as garden terrace, and promises a “New York edge”.
It also promises a something a little different from its JBR sisters, with the team stating, “STK Downtown will offer a new approach to the dining destination, with alternative experiences and some exciting collaborations in the mix.”
All the classic STK design features will star, include the cherry blossom trees and wave-like ceiling.
“STK Downtown features an industrial-chic warehouse style with the glitz and glam of Dubai flair,” says the team behind it.
