Atlantis, The Palm unmasks Yuan, their new Haute Bar concept & Dining Experience
November 1, 2013: Luxury hotel, Atlantis, The Palm, located in Dubai, has opened their much-anticipated new restaurant bar and lounge, Yuan. Taking guests on a gastronomic adventure through China while redefining Cantonese and Szechuan cuisine, Executive Chef Jeff Tan, formerly of Hakkasan Mayfair, will amaze diners with his enticing dishes filled with startling combinations, incredible drinks and dynamic presentation.
“The concept behind Yuan is to provide our guests with a traditional Chinese experience in a vibrant and sophisticated setting, but also include shocking touches that you've never seen in this region. We wanted everything about the concept to be thrilling and totally unexpected,” commented Mr Serge Zaalof, President & Managing Director at Atlantis, The Palm.
Yuan has created a mouth-watering menu of traditional Cantonese dishes accentuated by contemporary Western cooking methods. Yuan’s spin on Chinese staples such as Sweet ‘N’ Sour Chicken demonstrates the restaurant's creativity and flair, with pineapple being complemented by crisp, tart pear for an exciting and delectable twist. The dim sum offering is inviting and indulgent, with a variety of flavours designed to entice the senses. The menu at Yuan also boasts a list of tempting Oriental BBQ specialities, from classics such as Peking Duck and Crispy Roast Chicken marinated in five spices, to 26 hours Braised Beef Cheek. Seafood dishes range from Oven-Roasted Chilean Sea Bass Fillet with Honey Infused Superior Soya Sauce on sautéed scallop, prawn and mushroom to Sautéed Prawn with Alaska King Crab in Szechuan Hot Bean Sauce.
Further, Yuan introduces the tea ceremony, a Chinese cultural tradition - to the region. Prepared by Dubai’s first Kung Fu tea master, the ceremony offers guests the chance to enjoy the flavours and aromas of specially handcrafted teas brought from the country’s different regions.
Resembling a Siheyuan, a traditional Chinese house, the interiors of the restaurant will certainly hit the imagination of its guests with the gated entrance, a beautiful inner courtyard, incredible staff and exceptional service.
Yuan is open for dinner only. For reservations, please call +971 4 426 62626 or email [email protected]
