We do love an all-inclusive dining experience here in Dubai and what better way to celebrate the end of the working week than with a five-course menu featuring top French cuisine.
BQ – French Kitchen & Bar located in Habtoor Palace Dubai has just launched the “Paris, Paris” night and foodies can expect to sample an authentic five-course menu every Thursday from 7pm until 11pm.
The dining experience starts off with entrées and diners can sample the likes of smoked salmon on blinis, foie gras tartine on brioche, escargots, goat’s cheese salad and lastly, an amazing seafood platter with Fine de Clair oysters, Atlantic water prawns, salmon tartar and sea bass ceviche. Yum.
Next up is soup – slurp on a traditional French onion soup with Gruyère cheese and croutons which is served up tableside.
Diners then get to choose between four different main course options and four different delicious-sounding desserts.
Main course options consist of beef fillet, a classic bouillabaisse brimming with fresh seafood including sea bass, salmon, mussels, clams and prawns, grilled baby chicken and vegetarians can chomp on a ratatouille niçoise.
Now, it wouldn’t be a traditional French dining experience without a cheese platter and you won’t be disappointed with a selection of French cheeses and a mixture of dry and fresh fruits to accompany them with.
Still have any space left? Those with a sweet tooth can choose between pain perdu, profiteroles with a hot chocolate sauce and vanilla ice cream, Paris-Brest (choux pastry with a praline-flavoured cream) or a seasonal fruit tart with raspberry sorbet.
The “Paris, Paris” dining experience comes in at a pocket-friendly Dhs225 and those who fancy a tipple with their dinner just need to pay an extra Dhs100 for free-flowing red and white grape, hops and mixed drinks.
Along with authentic food and a classy Parisian ambiance there will be live French music so forget booking that trip to Paris and book yourself in to BQ – French Kitchen & Bar.
Dhs225 (soft drinks), Dhs325 (house beverages). Thu 7pm-11pm. Ongoing. Habtoor Palace Dubai, LXR Hotels & Resorts, Al Habtoor City. For reservations email firstname.lastname@example.org, www.alhabtoorcityhotels.com (04 435 5577).
