One of the world’s most unique and exciting restaurants, Dinner by Heston Blumenthal is now open at the world’s most ultra-luxury resort, Atlantis The Royal. A regional first, Dinner offers experiential dining and storytelling in a relaxed and informal culinary experience, with a menu inspired by the tastes and flavours of Britain dating back as far as the 13th century, from the farmers’ table to the royal courts of England. The presence of Dinner by Heston Blumenthal in Dubai is an exciting and prestigious arrival, for the brand, as its overseas portfolio expands.
Dinner offers edible history through storytelling in the form of highly modern dishes inspired by a gastronomic insight from Medieval (c.1300) to Victorian (c.1800). Meat Fruit (c.1500), which if simply put, appears to be a Mandarin but is actually an artistically disguised chicken liver parfait, is regarded as one of Dinner by Heston’s most iconic dishes.
The Salamagundy (c.1723), which is Dinner’s contemporary version of a 17th century salad dish features layers of smoked confit chicken, warm slices of beef bone marrow, pickled walnuts, braised salsify with bitter leaves and finished with freshly grated horseradish.
After a historical journey sampling rich mains, guests are taken on a sweet discovery of the 19th century with the very popular dessert, Tipsy Cake (c.1858). Taking its lead from the arrival of the first pineapples to the English court in 1700.
Located on the second floor of Atlantis The Royal, the beautifully appointed restaurant overlooks the Skyblaze fire and water fountain show via an expansive terrace and floor to ceiling windows. Guests enter the restaurant via a panelled room, perfumed with frankincense, wood smoke and leather and features Victorian-style animal sculptures built into the wood. As the entry door closes, a concealed automatic sliding door opens to reveal the restaurant and show kitchen.
Dinner by Heston Blumenthal is open daily from 6:00pm to 11:00pm.
