Dreaming of those autumn leaves, blueberry pies and lobster rolls? Dream no longer. Fans of all things New England have got a brand-new hangout – and it looks great.
NOÉPE is now open at The Promenade, the revamped dining destination on the edge of the Creek at Park Hyatt Dubai, which houses two new restaurants and the return of the classic Traiteur brunch.
Alongside Brasserie du Park – a Normandy-inspired restaurant that provides a touch of fancy, French flair, with simple yet authentic dishes – is NOÉPE, a typically New England restaurant.
“Inspired by the classic coastal splendor of Cape Cod, this charming space is designed to be light and breezy creating a relaxed yet refined environment,” says the team behind it. And relaxed it is, with picture-perfect views across the Creek for a lazy waterfront meal.
This chilled-out eatery has a laid-back nautical vibe – all whites and blues inside – with a light, breezy atmosphere, all well-suited to a casual bite.
The restaurant has the kind of compact menu that’s ideal for sharing, featuring oysters, Maryland crab cakes, lobster mac ’n’ cheese, New England chowder, New York cheesecake and these lobster sliders – because what’s more East Coast than chunks of meaty crustacean housed in a buttery brioche roll? Served with Old Bay chips (a US speciality, created to taste like freshly caught Maryland crab), NOÉPE is a piece of New England in Old Dubai.
Dhs110. Open daily 5pm-2am. Park Hyatt Dubai, Deira (04 602 1814).
