Rhodes Mezzanine, Grosvenor House’s quintessential modern British restaurant, celebrates its first anniversary this month.
To mark the special occasion Michelin starred celebrity chef Gary Rhodes hosted a glittering champagne reception in the hotel’s stunning flagship restaurant.
Over the course of the last year, Rhodes Mezzanine has firmly placed modern British cuisine back on the international culinary map. A visual master piece, the restaurant infuses a multitude of design influences – baroque style furniture coupled with modern lighting to create a contemporary work of art that dazzles and mesmerizes guests the minute they are swept through the door.
“We opened last year with an aim of challenging some of the traditional perceptions of British cuisine, and so far we have been absolutely thrilled by the response of our diners. Dubai is fast becoming one of the world’s leading culinary hubs and I am proud that Rhodes Mezzanine is playing a significant role in helping raise the bar. Diners are not only embracing some of the traditional classics, but I’m also thrilled to see how popular some of our more adventurous dishes have become.”
commented Gary Rhodes.
Commenting on the restaurant, Pam Wilby general manager of Grosvenor House Dubai and Le Royal Meridien Beach Resort & Spa added:
“The arrival of Rhodes Mezzanine was highly anticipated and over the past twelve months the restaurant has gone from strength to strength, proving hugely popular amongst our international guests and local residents alike.”
The 64-cover Rhodes Mezzanine boasts a sumptuous à la carte menu as well as a delicious tasting menu, perfect for those spoilt-for-choice diners. To start, guests can choose from a delightful selection including; Lobster omelette thermidor or terrine of foie gras and artichokes with a sweet red pepper dressing. The main courses on offer are equally mouth watering; from Roast Loin of Welsh lamb with a tomato and tarragon navarin to Steamed Hallibut with a Cornish crab rissoto. For desert, Rhodes’ legendary Bread and butter pudding is featured alongside Jam roly-poly with strawberry jam sauce and fresh custard, to name but a few.
“In just a short space of time Rhodes Mezzanine has made a huge impact on the Dubai dining scene and has become one of the UAE’s most widely talked about and renowned eateries. We have established a very strong following in a short period of time which is shown by the large number of repeat visitors flocking to sample Gary Rhodes’ unique twist on our favourite British classics. ”
Renowned for his unique mastery of traditional British fare and tireless attention to detail and with a host of Michelin stars under his belt, and his 10th international restaurant on the way, Gary Rhodes continues to receive international acclaim.
Located on the Mezzanine level of Grosvenor House hotel, Rhodes Mezzanine is open from 7.30pm to 11.30pm, Monday to Saturday.
