The St. Regis Saadiyat Island Resort Abu Dhabi is delighted to announce that MAZI Abu Dhabi, its brand new ‘fine-casual’ restaurant, has officially opened its doors. MAZI, which means ‘together’ in Greek, specialises in sumptuous and colourful Greek specialties, served with an elegant and modern twist.
Bright and casual, MAZI Abu Dhabi offers an enlightening voyage through the flavours, colours and culture of the Mediterranean, filled with tantalising dishes and exceptionally invigorating beverages.
Guests are invited to dine either in the cosy and rustic dining room, or out on the beautiful terrace. Scattered with luscious greenery and delicate olive trees, the charming outdoor area hosts an exclusive wood and fire grill where guests can watch the expert team prepare all manner of aromatic grilled delights being prepared. Brimming with positive vibes and providing a warm environment where everyone feels immediately at home, the curated menu showcases the most enticing nuances and treasured cultural traditions of Greece.
Providing a perfect escape from the hectic and busy pace of city life, the MAZI Abu Dhabi menu is specifically designed to be savoured together. Introducing a relaxed style of dining where each dish is brought to the table when it is ready to be served, the choice of delectable and colourful specialties is inspired by the childhood memories of founders Christina Mouratoglou, the successful Greek restauranteur and entrepreneur, and Adrien Carré.
After launching MAZI London in Notting Hill to tremendous success, the pair of passionate food connoisseurs are thrilled to bring their unique destination and innovative style of Greek dining to Abu Dhabi.
Refreshingly informal, but still oozing with sophisticated style and taste, the expertly crafted menu is served in a sociable and casual sharing-style format. Alongside favourites such as Tzatziki, Greek Salad, Kavourosalata and Grilled Calamari, guests will also find unique plates such as Feta Tempura, Shredded Lamb Shoulder Tacos and Sea Bass Tartare. Those on a gluten-free diet can also select appetizing options from a dedicated gluten free menu, featuring tempting palate pleasers like Chicken Thigh Souvlaki Skewers and Artichoke Risotto à la Polita.
Further accentuating the delicious array of creations is a superb selection of some of the finest Greek grapes, premium beverages and bespoke mixed drinks, inspired by Greece and infused with fruits and fresh herbs sourced from different regions across the Grecian landscape.
Boasting a varied and unique menu, carefully curated by MAZI London’s Greek Chef, MAZI Abu Dhabi’s talented team pour passion and incredible culinary skills into crafting every dish. All dishes are created with top quality, fresh and sustainably sourced seasonal ingredients from some of the best producers in the region. MAZI Abu Dhabi also offer a full gluten free menu to ensure all guests can enjoy the tantalising flavours of Greece. Providing an upbeat soundtrack and picturesque indoor and outdoor dining opportunities, the venue is ideal for a lazy lunch or a heart-warming dinner with families, friends and loved ones.
