Eat British at Gordon Ramseys Hell’s Kitchen Dubai
How about a Big British Lunch to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee!
Gordon Ramsey’s Hell’s Kitchen Dubai at Caesars Palace in Blue Waters island is the place to go for this Big British Lunch!
So Hell’s Kitchen was opened back in 2019 and Gordon himself opened the restaurant.
Together with his executive chef Damien, he’s still very involved with the menus. So nothing more Gordon Ramsey than his Beef Wellington Mark! Followed by some classic Sticky Toffee Pudding.
Gordon Ramsey’s Hell’s Kitchen Dubai does has a set lunch menu and that’s a 3 course Signature lunch menu where you’d start of course with a Creaser Salad, followed by none other than the Beef Wellington followed by Gordon’s Sticky Toffee pudding! That’s Gordon’s Signature Lunch menu.
There are other options available but it’s not cheap at AED 325 BUT it’s more reasonable doing it this way as just the Beef Wellington alone would set you back AED 295 alone!
Available every day and does some with some carrots and mashed potatoes on your plate too. Or you could pop in any day of the week for a Big British Breakfast from 7.30 am to 10.30 am. Apparently there is large terrace overlooking the pool areas and it is just about cool enough I’m told to sit outside for an early breakfast or later in the evening for drinks and dinner.
Awesome Octogenarian Art from Sotheby’s Dubai in DIFC
Chow Down to DIFC from now till 1st in July and head to the Sotheby’s Dubai art gallery, originally and of course still in Sotheby’s London’s New Bond Street. They are auctioneers for art, watches, jewelry and even handbags! You’ll see 2 floors of art produced by a very creative Chinese icon now an octogenarian apparently known as M! Do you know who I’m talking about? Nothing to do with James Bond HQ!
We’re talking about Mr. Michael Chow the celebrated and well known owner and founder of Mr Chow the high end Chinese restaurant based in London’s Knightsbridge opened back Feb 1968! He had very European interiors, but was serving Chinese food and the waiters were all Italian!
So Mr Chow, M wasn’t only creative in the kitchen, he was very instrumental in the design and architecture of his restaurants too. And Mr Chow soon become frequented and a fave of many a celebrity, he opened branches in Las Vegas, New York, Beverly Hills.
But his first passion was painting and he’s now come back to him in his 80s! Expect to see 2 floors of 2 distinct types of art, mixed media using gold leaf, acrylic and a floor on works on paper, I get the feeling it’s quite abstract in design and I think it’s going to be quite cool place to linger for longer and take in the vibes. From now till July 1st
Giorgio Armani was so impressed with the interiors of the NYC branch of Mr Chow, he gifted M specially designed Armani tuxedos for the waiters! And in turn Mr M designed the interiors of Giorgio Armani’s boutique in Rodeo Drive in Bev Hills! So live among the legends! Entrance to the exhibition is free.
