Nick & Scott take on Gordon Ramsay’s world-famous beef Wellington

Dubai duo inspired by former boss’ dish at new restaurant Verve

Nick & Scott take on Gordon Ramsay’s world-famous beef Wellington

Home-grown Dubai chef stars Nick and Scott are throwing down the gauntlet to their former culinary coach Gordon Ramsay – by taking on his renowned beef Wellington recipe.

Nick Alvis and Scott Price are launching an ambitious summer refresh across all three of their restaurants in the city.

But it’s the dish at their newest venture Verve Bar & Brasserie, at Grand Plaza Mövenpick Media City, that is set to spark a tasty battle.

The pair met while working under no-nonsense TV supremo Ramsay in London’s prestigious Claridge’s Hotel, slowly mastering his exceptional recipes and techniques.

Now, they’ve taken direct inspiration from his genius by beefing up the menu at Verve.

It's priced at Dhs220 usually or the Saturday couple's special is Dhs350 for two including a bottle of grape.

Chef Scott Price, one half of the duo, said: “We were there when Gordon famously reinvented the beef Wellington at Claridge’s, and we have taken it on again.

“We are confident this is as good as any beef Wellington in the world – including Gordon’s.

“Verve can be traced to the energy and innovation of the London food scene where Nick and I made our mark working with people such as Gordon.

“We are bringing that elegant, classic and honest food to Dubai and have worked hard in the last few months to really refine the menu – which we are very proud of and is getting great feedback.”

Ramsay has the dish on both his Dubai outposts Bread Street Kitchen and Hell’s Kitchen – be sure to read both our reviews.
Will Nick and Scott’s live up the best Welly in the world? We don’t doubt it.

As well as the Verve sprucing, the duo are launching an all-new Indoor Garden Brunch with live entertainment at their signature Souk Madinat restaurant folly – which received a Highly Commended nod in both the Best European and Best Outdoor restaurant categories at this year’s awards.

While at The Lion by Nick & Scott – Highly Commended in the Best Pub Food category – they will be putting on a range of seasonal bar dishes and cocktails as well as weekend food and drink packages.

We’ll bring you the latest information once the details are confirmed.
Dhs220 (each), Dhs350 (Saturday special). Open daily noon-2.30pm, 7pm-10.30pm. Grand Plaza Mövenpick Media City, Dubai Media City ((04 525 7633).
