Al Muntaha has unveiled a new menu of classic and fine French fare at the hands of one of the world’s best chefs, Francky Semblat. Perched on the 27th floor of the seven-star Burj Al Arab in Dubai, the menu takes guests on a gastronomic journey of French cuisine bursting with seasonal produce, the finest of ingredients and respect for the art of classic French culinary styles.
A protege of chef Joël Robuchon, Chef Francky has more than 23 years of experience at some of the world’s most celebrated restaurants from Paris to Shanghai and Macau. Having established these restaurants as gastronomic destinations in their own right, and achieving multiple Michelin stars for each, his reputation for classic French style and commitment to deliver extraordinary food is known and appreciated by epicureans around the globe.
Guests will start by choosing from a selection of indulgent appetisers including foie gras grilled and served with glazed cherries and fresh almonds, fine green pea and mint velouté on a sweet onion emulsion, and king crab with Amalfi lemon, caviar and yuzu sour cream.
Following this, guests can savour a superb selection of fish, meat and vegetarian dishes, expertly sourced from around the globe. To name just a few of the options to anticipate: silky Maine Lobster with a delicate saffron couscous and “Bouillabaisse” emulsion, Australian Wagyu Sirloin with a duck confit potato and glazed shallot and capsicum relish, and White Cod miso from the deep seas of Patagonia, served with a pepper sauce and seasonal white asparagus.
