"When we started working on the concept of a new restaurant for the hotel, we noticed a demand in the city for authentic Spanish food,” said Kempinski Hotel Mall of the Emirates general manager Konstantin Zeuke.
"We created a trendy authentic tapas restaurant which brings a bit of Barcelona, Madrid and Seville to Dubai.
"We worked with the top industry consultants for this project, hiring a Spanish interior designer and branding agency from Barcelona to ensure the authenticity of the restaurant. Kempinski has always had a passion for great food and beverage and it is exciting to bring a new concept to Dubai which we plan to take to other Kempinski hotels in the future.”
Award-winning design agency Sandra Tarruella, created a traditional feel using ceramic tiles and original works of art from all over Spain. Recycled paper placemats and coasters placed directly on rustic wooden tables evokes a warm contemporary atmosphere. Spanish branding agency, RUN Extrabold, designed strong graphic elements using red, black, and white print on wood and craft paper.
The Salero menu will feature a combination of tapas as well as a wide selection of paellas and fresh seafood specialties. An extensive beverage menu of regional specialties from Andalucia to Catalonia has been chosen to complement the cuisine.
