a stunning grand bar and premium Mediterranean & Japanese cuisines
Dubai, United Arab Emirates– After a successful grand opening gala hosted in February, F.R.N.D.S. Grand Café is now officially open and ready to welcome guests in the heart of the ever-dazzling Downtown Dubai. Located in the prestigious Address Fountain Views, the upscale restaurant offers an elegant dining experience that caters to a variety of occasions, from a leisurely breakfast to late-night socializing.
The restaurant’s signature design elements are inspired by the golden era of Art Deco, featuring a visually striking five-meter-tall “bas-relief” carving crafted by world-renowned Portuguese artist VHILS and stained glass-adorned grand bar with a “floating” quartzite and walnut table suspended from the ceiling. The cosy indoor dining space is ideal for an impressive date night, social gatherings with friends and celebrations of any occasion. For a more intimate setting, a glass-enclosed private dining room situated between towering five-meter-tall wine chillers is available for guests upon pre-booking.
The terrace at F.R.N.D.S. exemplifies charm and sophistication, drawing inspiration from the classic cafes lining Champs-Élysées. Enclosed and air-conditioned during the warmer months and open to the city vibe during winter, the space offers a cosy and inviting ambiance year-round. Centrally located in the heart of downtown, the terrace is ideal for business lunches or enjoying classic French pastries baked every morning by the award-winning pastry team. Premium shisha service is also available for those who wish to unwind after a long day or take a quick break between work hours.
The restaurant boasts an extensive menu featuring premium dishes from Mediterranean and Japanese cuisines. Head Chef Matthis Grosjean, who has an impressive portfolio, including Michelin-starred restaurants in France, such as Le Epicure in Bristols Hotel Paris and Paul Bocuse L’Auberge in Lyon, leads the Mediterranean kitchen team. Head Chef Adel leads the Japanese team, bringing over 20 years of experience from world-renowned restaurants such as NOBU. The menu is complimented by world-class cocktails and an extensive wine offering, making F.R.N.D.S. the perfect destination for those seeking an upscale atmosphere to connect with peers and colleagues.
