The Restaurant at Address Downtown is now open, and we can’t wait to try it.
The eatery – which is similar to the one in Address Boulevard – is serving up dishes “inspired by French and British flavours”. It’s a fun concept, modelled on a home (if your home includes a library and gallery, that is). Choose to sit in one of several different “rooms”, or areas in the restaurant, for a totally different feel each time. Spaces include the lounge, library, private dining room, dining room, living room, kitchen and gallery.
The restaurant is open for three meals a day, with dishes including French toast, omelettes, eggs Benedict, homemade granola and more for breakfast.
For lunch and dinner there’s a selection of fish dishes including Dover sole, salmon and sea bass, as well as black truffle linguine, chicken served Rossini-style, beef Wellington and rib-eye steaks. Desserts range from Eton mess to apple pie soufflé, chocolate sorbet, vanilla crème brulée and a selection of cheeses.
Meanwhile for afternoon tea there is Lounge at the newly re-opened hotel, while for drinks there’s the Cigar Lounge.
A first Middle Eastern branch of the popular global steakhouse chain STK in the Rixos Premium JBR last year.
The American brand also has branches in Las Vegas, New York and London, and is famous for its top-notch steaks. Classic steakhouse options on the menu have had a modern makeover, with the various cuts of beef, including fillets, tenderloin, rib-eye, T-bone and Tomahawk, undoubtedly the stars of the show. There are also burgers and braised beef short rib being served up, with sides including Parmesan truffle fries and mac ‘n’ cheese.
Also due to open soon is Mediterranean restaurant The Galliard, as well as a Zeta, a Californian-Asian restaurant, with views over the Burj Khalifa. For drinks there’s Neos, perched on level 63 of the hotel, which is being billed as a “luxurious, lively lounge”.
We'll see you at Address Downtown, pronto.
