Fume's second outlet to open August 2015
After Hotelier Middle East revealed that Fume would open its second location at Manzil Downtown Dubai, the restaurant has said it's targeting an opening date for mid-August.
The new venue can seat up to 200 diners over two floors, and will have a view of the chefs in action thanks to the open plan kitchens.
While the menu will share signature dishes with its sister establishment at Pier 7, Fümé Downtown will have a new menu of its own. Items that remain include hot smoked salmon with teriyaki sauce and pickled cucumber (a Japanese-inspired dish revamped for Fümé Downtown), the slow-cooked chuck ribs, the pulled beef brisket bun and vinegar slaw. the mac and cheese, and more.
The Fümé Downtown menu will offer breakfast selections including chakchouka, a spicy North African cooked egg and vegetable dish, the full English, eggs cooked to your liking, sausage, mushrooms, bacon, hash browns.
Manzil Downtown Dubai general manager Stefan Viard previously told Hotelier Middle East that he would like to see the second Fümé outlet open “before the summer”.
He said at the time: "I think is a good addition to our portfolio, not only running F&B by ourselves but getting good partners in. They will benefit from us and we will benefit from them. It’s a very nice design I have to say, it will be interesting.”
