SushiSamba is a high-end eatery with restaurants in cities around the world, from London and Miami to Las Vegas and Amsterdam, and we are about to get one of our own here in the UAE.
The local restaurant is set to open in The Palm Tower, 220 metres above the world-famous Palm Jumeirah in Dubai.
SushiSamba will offer its blend of Japanese, Brazilian and Peruvian "cuisine, culture, music and design", as well as incredible views of the Dubai skyline from its tower-top vantage point. Expect to see everything from sushi and sashimi to perfectly cooked meats and churrasco dishes on the menu.
"SushiSamba opened its first restaurant in New York in 1999 and has evolved into one of the world’s most sought-after venues for dining and entertainment," Omar Gutierrez, the restaurant's chief operating officer, said. "Twenty years on, we are gearing up to open in Dubai which, as a growing culinary destination, is a perfect fit for SushiSamba, and complements our other international locations perfectly."
The restaurant will be on the 51st floor, above the 50th floor infinity pool deck of the tower. The building, which is still under construction, will have a 289-room St Regis hotel, 432 luxury residences and a host of recreational facilities.
