Dubai’s food scene never seems to stand still for too long, with new arrivals and concepts popping up almost daily. And there is even change among the city’s long standing restaurants.
European eatery Maison Mathis, based at Arabian Ranches, has just undergone a major refurbishment. Not only has it re-opened with a new look, but also with a new ethos.
The restaurant is one of a growing number spots putting sustainability at the forefront of their business, re-launching with a number of eco-friendly initiatives.
After it’s official relaunch earlier this month, Maison Mathis announced it would be scrapping the use of plastic bottles in the restaurant. Instead, it will serve both still and sparkling water in glass bottles, which will come with unlimited refills for customers. It is the first step in a wider move to rid the eatery of all single-use plastic.
As well as ditching the plastic, Maison Mathis has introduced vertical farming units, with chefs using produce grown fresh on the premises in a number of their dishes.
The restaurant has set itself a mission to become self-sufficient and promote food integrity.
It also aims to promote the use of locally sourced produce where possible, and will be working alongside suppliers from around the region.
