Jumeirah at Etihad Towers gets chef Michael Caines
Michelin-starred chef Michael Caines is set to open 'Pearls by Michael Caines' at Jumeirah at Etihad Towers in September 2015.
Last year, Caines spoke to Caterer Middle East ahead of Gourmet Abu Dhabi 2014, where he was hosted by the Abu Dhabi property. At the time, he had said: "I'd like to look at the possibilities of setting up a restaurant out here.
"I've made some great contacts here, and I think they would be worth pursuing to see if there's an opportunity to open a restaurant here in Abu Dhabi."
This venture will mark the first time the two-star chef will give his name to a restaurant outside the UK.
Pearls by Michael Caines will be a casual dining concept, with the menu including dishes prepared with locally grown ingredients, but with European flavours and style of cooking.
The venue, set to have a grand opening event in October, will have floor-to-ceiling open glass walls and an open terrace on the floor above.
