Dubai’s Business Bay is set to welcome a brand-new Japanese-Latin American-fusion restaurant, taking over the first level of the space that formerly housed Morimoto Dubai at Renaissance Downtown Dubai Hotel.
As the name may hint, dishes are all designed to ignite the fifth taste – umami – and are split into nine categories, with a focus on sharing-style dining.
Expect a genre-traversing menu of themes including Nippy Nippon (cold dishes), Hotto Mami (hot dishes), Tempura y Frita, Carbon de Japon (grilled), La Mami Umami (signature bites), Sushi and Sashimi, Maki and Sweet Wasabi (desserts), as well as an ambitious, creative menu of mixed drinks, ostensibly designed for the ’gram.
The space, meanwhile, includes an enviable outdoor terrace, which diners may remember from visits to the 23rd floor’s former occupant, with impressive views of the surrounding neighbourhood, and the new addition of a Latin grill.
Stay close to Time Out Dubai for an exclusive first-look inside the eatery.
Opening Tuesday August 18. Renaissance Downtown Dubai Hotel, Business Bay.
