Jumeirah Unveils Four New Culinary Experiences in Dubai

Renowned for its bold, trailblazing culinary concepts, Jumeirah Group is thrilled to reveal its four signature restaurants, Rockfish, Shimmers, Zheng He’s and KAYTO pop-up within Jumeirah Mina A’Salam and Jumeirah Al Naseem, including a brand-new concept and the relaunch of two of Dubai’s most-loved venues. From innovative Chinese cuisine and Mediterranean seafood with Italian flair to exotic Peruvian-Nikkei and a beachside Greek experience, the four distinct restaurants are set to impress Dubai residents and visitors alike this season.

Under the direction of Jumeirah Group’s Chief Culinary Officer, Michael Ellis, the four unique restaurants showcase the hotel group’s emphasis on delivering culinary excellence, one-of-a-kind atmosphere and unparalleled service. Michael Ellis comments: “Innovation is at the heart of what we do and therefore I am delighted to announce the evolution of three of our restaurants in Jumeirah Mina A’Salam and Jumeirah Al Naseem as well as the launch of a brand-new pop-up KAYTO in Jumeirah Al Naseem. With famed dishes of Chef Marco, Chef Cristian, Chef Wei and Chef Nikolas, all served in distinct, iconic locations, Jumeirah is the place to be.”

Celebrating the unique fusion of Peruvian and Japanese cuisine known as “Nikkei”, KAYTO pop-up restaurant by Chef Cristian Goya at Jumeirah Al Naseem will captivate all who visit. Designed for sharing, the menu features dishes such as Saikyo Miso Black Cod, fresh ceviche, special sushi nigiri and rolls, and robust meat dishes, to be enjoyed in an effortlessly cool atmosphere enhanced by secluded outdoor seating and the upbeat sounds of a live DJ set six days a week.

Home to exceptional views of the glistening Arabian Gulf and Burj Al Arab Jumeirah, Rockfish showcases the artfully crafted Italian fare of Michelin-starred Chef Marco Garfagnini. With a focus on crudo and seafood, the restaurant is known for its eclectic interior design, sprawling terrace and speciality gin trolley with more than 15 beverage varieties from around the world, making it the perfect spot to enjoy the winter weather.

As Jumeirah Mina A’Salam continues to thrive as a leading Dubai dining destination, Zheng He’s, the popular Chinese restaurant, reopens its doors with a new culinary and mixology offering, refreshed décor and dynamic ambience. The latest menu, curated by former Hakkasan chef, Chef Lai Min Wei, delivers classic Chinese dishes with a contemporary spin using the finest ingredients and age-old techniques. Guests will be offered the likes of Blue Lobster Dumplings with Caviar and Lemongrass Sauce, Boston Lobster in Tomato Chili Broth with Crispy Rice, and Zheng He’s iconic Peking Duck.

Situated alongside Jumeirah Mina A’Salam’s pristine stretch of beach, Shimmers, the Greek hotspot, is turning up the heat for the cooler season. Complete a whitewashed colour palette, breezy beachside vibes and a revitalised menu by new Chef Nikolas Bragoudakis from the famous island of Crete, Shimmers will transport guests to the Cyclades as they sample the vibrant flavours and atmosphere of Greek cuisine.
