Brand-new Californian restaurant opens at Paramount Hotel Dubai

Fancy living the life of a movie star? It’s best to start by dining like one.

Inspired by coastal road trips of California, the newly opened Paramount Hotel Dubai has launched its signature blockbuster fine-dining restaurant and bar, Pacific Groove.

Aiming to treat guests to the true west-coast way of life, Pacific Groove serves a market-style selection of grilled fresh seafood, wood-fired steaks, raw bar and salads.

And to capture the true essence of the Californian cuisine, executive producer culinary Ezequiel Cardozo and chef de cuisine Larissa Mazzoli have worked together to deliver Golden State sunshine on a plate.

Pacific Groove’s offers a fusion of Mexican, American and Asian flavours that make for a healthy, wholesome and inventive meal. “The dishes we have created are simple and in no way conceal or distort the raw flavor and texture of the steak or the seafood,” says Larissa.

The new restaurant’s interiors feature a state-of-the-art show kitchen with an impressively large grill, market-style setup paired with a contemporary laid-back setting.

What’s on the menu? To get started, take on an array of ceviches, crudos and handcrafted signature Californian groovy rolls alongside a list of cold and warm starters.

The appetiser menu highlights include carabineros ceviche with dragon fruit, red chilli, cilantro and yuzu, wagyu tataki crudo, king crab cake and plenty more.

Chefs can be seen sizzling wood-fired steaks and seafood delights for mains that are served with a sweet and tangy grilled pineapple and choice of sauce.

The expansive menu also includes a variety of vegan and vegetarian options. As Larissa puts it: “It wouldn’t be truly Californian if we forgot the discerning palettes of vegans and vegetarians.”

Make sure to save some room for something sweet, as foodies can expect specially crafted sharing desserts.

And, in true Cali style, guests can sip on sundowners from Pacific Groove’s extensive Signature mixed drink list or take on its Grape Cellar offering crisp, flirty notes from the rolling hills of the Napa Valley.
