Bleu Blanc by David Myers-Savour refined French farmhouse flair and culinary delights from Chef David Myers
It all begins from the moment you step through the rustic blue doors. A blue so vivid it evokes memories of endless stretches of azure skies and mesmerizing backdrops associated with the alluring French countryside.
The first aromas to excite your senses as you enter are those of a floor to ceiling aromatic herb garden, swiftly followed by the inviting scent of freshly baked bread wafting from the oven upstairs. As you enter the restaurant, an open-plan kitchen showcases the skill and passion of the chefs at work, with the sizzle of the grill tantalising you with a taste of things to come.
If Chef David Myers were to have a house in Southern France, this is what it would look like. From the rustic wooden spoons separating the venue’s semi-private dining area from the main restaurant, to the vintage-inspired cutlery and crockery, David has handpicked every piece of décor and detailing throughout Bleu Blanc, further adding his signature and style to this exciting new venue. The focal point of the restaurant and its menu is the wood-fired grill, representing the fire that often is reminiscent of the heart of a French farmhouse – a source of warmth that brings loved ones together. Our grill selection features premium cuts of meat, fresh seafood and seasonal vegetables, all prepared in front of guests, encouraging them to partake in a family style sharing concept.
Bleu Blanc’s refined bar is a meeting point that invites guests to socialize and enjoy an aperitif, accompanied by eclectic beats. The cocktail menu showcases elegantly handcrafted cocktails conceived by Sam Ross, the creator of the modern classic cocktail, Penicillin. From the Sommelier’s Island, an extensive Southern French-focused grape selection is served, with regional highlights such as Côtes du Rhône, Côtes de Provence, Pays D’Oc and Languedoc – Roussillon. The Sommelier’s Island acts as a lively entertainment space which also displays a fine collection of exquisite decanters and glassware.
As the weather cools down, Bleu Blanc’s terrace is the perfect spot to enjoy good food and company, surrounded by sweeping views of the Dubai Water Canal. It may be distances away from the Côte D’Azur, but Bleu Blanc makes it feel a little closer.
Bleu Blanc is located on the mezzanine floor of the Renaissance Downtown Hotel, Dubai, and is open from 12pm – 3pm daily for lunch and 6pm-12am daily for dinner, with the bar open from 12pm-2am daily. For more information visit Bleublanc-dubai.com or call +971 4 512 5533 for reservations.
