The iconic Andaz Capital Gate Abu Dhabi has introduced a new flavour to the capital’s dining scene. Cyan, a Franco-Arab Brasserie, is a new venue located on the 18th floor of the Guinness World Record holding leaning tower of Abu Dhabi.
Cyan is a modern brasserie where French-rooted cuisine meets the rich and hospitable culture of the Middle East, in a creative and playful manner. The aim of the restaurant is to offer a genuine experience that, in all aspects, reflects what inextricably links both regions: the enjoyment of life “Joie de vivre” and the love of food and dining.
Cyan, in both English and French, is the name of the colour that lies in the exact middle point between blue and green. In addition to being an element of unity among all the different aspects of the restaurant’s design, blue and green have a symbolic function. Blue represents Les bleus, as the French are nicknamed, and their love of food more than anything else, while green represents the Levantine cultures, which are best known for their hospitable and highly social eating habits. Cyan, therefore, is the synthesis of these two cultural elements that are the core of the restaurant.
Menu highlights include creative Mezze such as Salt Baked Heirloom Beetroot Labneh, Artichoke and Chickpea Hummus and Zucchini Flower Tempura; Oysters and Foie Gras Terrine for starters, Artichoke Ravioli, Wagyu Flank Steak and Sea Bass Veronique for mains and Mango Pavlova, Pistachio Baklava, Mille-Feuille and Chocolate Tart for desserts.
“Cyan Brasserie seeks to elevate the essence of simple yet relaxed French dining, by transforming the venue into something more connected to the thirst for experience and quality of the new generations,” says Martim Maita, Head Chef at Andaz Capital Gate Abu Dhabi. “Our goal is to create an extraordinary experience with quality offerings, using thoughtfully sourced, high-quality produce, served in an engaging yet non-pretentious environment,” he adds.
