If you’re looking for a new spot to tuck into some sushi this summer, you’re in luck as a brand-new Japanese restaurant is now open on Bluewaters Dubai. And in even more exciting news it's from Michelin-starred chef Akira Back.

Swanky new eatery Paru is now open on the rooftop of Caesars Resort Bluewaters Dubai. Time Out Dubai’s been to check the venue out, and it’s looking great.

The interiors are modern and sleek, and feature an intricate ceiling of stark white origami flowers. Paru means pearl in Japanese, and suspended from the ceiling there is a flowing steel and crystal sculpture with strings of luminous orbs nods to the restaurant’s name.

You can dine in the restaurant, in the more casual lounge area, or on the tall central long tables. Plus there are two al fresco terraces, too, surrounded by bonsai trees, boasting stunning views across to JBR and the Palm.

And we can’t wait to try the food. Paru promises an “eclectic menu of contemporary Japanese dishes”. The menu includes dishes such as suzuki ceviche (sea Bass with caviar and soy yuzu panzu) and crispy rice (spicy tuna on crispy rice, avocado, jalapeño and spring onion) as well as including hotate (scallop, baby aubergine, enoki mushroom, asparagus and truffle soy butter) and popcorn ebi (rock shrimp tempura with wasabi mayo sauce).

There is also an extensive sushi menu, with everything from California rolls to maki with wagyu beef, foie gras and lobster tempura.

Mains include dishes such as black cod, kohitsuji (lamb chops marinated in soy garlic, asparagus, spinach and peppers) and yaki niku (beef short ribs in Asian marinade with sweet potato purée and asparagus).

It's a second Dubai restaurant from the chef, whose eponymous eatery opened at W Dubai - The Palm earlier this year.

Caesars Resort Bluewaters Dubai is the second hotel on the complex and sits next to Caesars Palace Bluewaters Dubai and Cove Beach. The resort is also a hop and a skip away from Caesars Palace, which has been open since November 2018 and houses the likes of Gordon Ramsay’s Hell’s Kitchen and Asian restaurant Zhen Wei.

Bluewaters Dubai is set to become a go-to spot for diners, with a heap of restaurants opening up on the island – including The London Project, Alici from the team behind Il Borro, Syrian restaurant Sah El Nom and Mexican spot Puerto 99.

We can’t wait until opening day.
Opening June 2019. Open daily 5pm-2am. Caesars Resort Bluewaters Dubai, Bluewaters Dubai, www.caesars.com/dubai.
