Famed New York restaurant Indochine is now open in Dubai’s DIFC, so if you’re looking for a new place to check out in 2020, this could be for you.

The French-Vietnamese restaurant opened in New York in 1984, and opened last month in Dubai’s DIFC, adding to an already huge dining scene in the area (for all you need to know about DIFC, click here).

It’s a first branch outside of New York for the restaurant, with the US one attracting top names to dine there over its 35-year history.

With tropical décor and chic interior design the cool spot also offers up an interesting menu with signature dishes including Vietnamese ravioli, made with rice noodles, chicken, shrimp and shiitake mushrooms, alongside new additions such as lamb char siu – slow-cooked lamb neck in a honey glaze, and amok cambodgien, steamed sea bream in banana leaf, coconut lemongrass custard, chilli sauce, scallions and ginger. There’s also an inventive range of mixed drinks.

“We are beyond excited to introduce Indochine to the region. We strongly believe that we will not just replicate the energy that Indochine brings with its brand and style but will also become a treasured hotspot with the ever-evolving fashionable crowd of DIFC” said by VKD Hospitality Founders; Khalil Dahmash and Varun Khemaney.

And in other exciting news for the area, Michelin-starred Chinese restaurant Hutong is set to open in January in DIFC.

With a restaurant already in Hong Kong, as well in the famous Shard in London, Miami and New York and we can’t wait to see what the Dubai restaurant has in store.

Hutong, which opened in Hong Kong nine years ago, was one of the first Chinese restaurants to be awarded a Michelin-star. For more on Hutong, click here.
