Jumeirah Restaurants LLC and Caprice Holdings have announced their plans to open a third restaurant in Dubai. Rivington Bar & Grill will open in Souk Madinat Jumeirah, following three years of success with the original restaurant in Souk Al Bahar.
The second Rivington Grill, due to open in Spring 2012 will occupy a prime position in the heart of Souk Madinat Jumeirah beside The Agency. It will be spread over three floors with the ground floor housing the main dining space, and featuring the signature wooden panelling, whitewashed walls, traditional dark wood bar and modern artwork that is the very essence of the Rivington Grill. The restaurant also boasts a terrace space which can seat up to 54 people in the cooler months.
The mezzanine floor will offer a bustling bar complete with an extensive outdoor terrace overlooking the Madinat Jumeirah waterways, Al Qasr and Burj Al Arab hotels with fabulous views over the Arabian Gulf. The third floor offers an intimate space with unrivalled views that can be utilised for a host of different events and is sure to attract the art, fashion and media worlds.
The menu at Rivington Bar & Grill is resolutely British and the strength of the food is on our insistence that only the freshest ingredients are sourced from both local and international artisan suppliers, practitioners and farmers. Dishes will include favourites such as the Rivington burger, the smoked haddock fishcake, the eggs Benedict and the legendary sticky toffee pudding.
Phil Broad, Managing Director of Jumeirah Restaurants LLC said, “The success of the Rivington Grill at Souk Al Bahar over the past three years has laid the foundation for the brand and we are now very excited to announce that we will be opening another Rivington Grill on the beach side at Madinat Jumeirah. The back-to-basics British cuisine, using only the highest quality seasonal ingredients at reasonable prices has really hit a chord with both the local, expatriate and tourist communities and I have every confidence in my team to deliver another wonderful restaurant to Dubai’s eating-out market. As soon as we have a confirmed the opening date we will share that information.”
