The St Regis Dubai, The Palm has unveiled a new destination that houses five restaurants, including Michelin-starred Tresind Studio.

The rooftop venue, called St Regis Gardens, can be accessed via a dedicated lobby at the hotel. The five restaurants – four of which will open over the coming months – are scattered across the garden, which features pathways lined with bonsai trees.

Aside from regular dining, the hotel's manager says the venue can host events, such as fashion shows, music performances and cultural exhibitions.

Here are the five restaurants that make up St Regis Gardens.

Tresind Studio

The Indian fine-dining venue, which holds two Michelin stars, is already operational.

The brainchild of chef Himanshu Saini, the restaurant serves a set tasting menu, which changes every four months. Some of the dishes previously served include wood apple pani puri, ghee roast crab with burnt cinnamon and curry leaf tempura and morel pulao with Assam tea dashi.

Chez Wam

The French restaurant is set to open by the end of this month. It is run by the Rikas Group, which is also the team behind Tagomago and La Cantine Du Faubourg.

Leading the kitchen is chef Hadrien Villedieu, who has worked alongside culinary greats such as Joel Robuchon, Alain Passard and Jean Pierre Vigato.

The venue will house a fine-dining space as well as a bar.


Also by Rikas Group, the venue will double as a restaurant and lounge “reminiscent of the roaring twenties”, according to the company.

It is inspired by the glory days of the Jazz Age, complete with plush seating, gold detailing and glittering chandeliers. Visitors can enjoy regular live entertainment when it opens at the end of September.

Signor Sassi

This marks the first UAE outpost of the London-based brand, which has previously played host to British royal family celebrations.

The restaurant already operates in Riyadh and Doha, with the Dubai venue set to launch in September. The interior will look like an extension of the surrounding garden, inspired by Italian summers.

If the menu is anything like the one in Riyadh, guests can expect dishes such as asparagi dorati with hollandaise sauce and Parmesan, octopus salad and risotto al pesce with saffron, sweet bell peppers, calamari and beef sausage.

The venue is run by Sunset Hospitality Group and San Carlos Group.

Lena Las Brasas by Dani Garcia

Completing the line-up is an outpost of the Spanish steakhouse by world-renowned chef Dani Garcia, whose Marbella restaurant won three Michelin stars in 2017.

The restaurant will serve fire-grilled meat and a selection of premium beverages. It will also feature a 14-seat omasake table with the overarching themes of fire and ember.

The interior will incorporate dark finishes to create an atmosphere of luxury. Set to open in September, it will have an outdoor bar and lounge area overlooking the Palm Jumeirah skyline.
