Mall adds 6 restaurants to new extension
Dubai, January 6, 2010
Mall of the Emirates, a leading shopping and leisure centre in Dubai, will include six new restaurants to their 10,500 sq m new extension which is expected to be complete in the third quarter of 2010.
The new outlets will offer an array of cuisines from Europe, Asia, Africa and the Middle East to add to the already established array of regional and international food outlets at the mall.
Three of the restaurants are making their debut in the UAE with flagship outlets at the mall – Al Halabi, which serves authentic Middle Eastern food including home-made marinated kebabs, Tribe which specialises in the tastes of Africa and PF Changs, the famous US-based Chinese restaurant franchise.
The other three renowned names include Fauchon – opening a flagship offering contemporary French cuisine with sophisticated signature dishes, Asha’s – famous for its Indian curries and biryani and Biella, the Italian restaurant, which will relocate from its existing position on the first floor to the new indoor plaza setting.
The new food offering will span approximately 3,400 sq m on the ground level and will complement the luxury retail stores in the upper levels of the extension.
“The new F&B outlets are perfectly suited to the occasion,” said Fuad Sharaf, vice president of Mall of the Emirates.
“The Italian Piazza style setting combined with the quality and variety of cuisine on offer is something unique to the dining sector, especially in New Dubai. Whatever your taste, the new line-up will offer the best casual dining experience available within a shopping mall,” he added.
With plenty of natural light from the dome above, the new restaurants will be arranged around a central two tier hand carved marble fountain feature and medallion patterned floor, said a statement. – TradeArabia News Service
