British chef Nathan Outlaw reveals seafood menu at new Burj Al Arab restaurant

Nathan Outlaw has become the first chef to get his name above the door of a restaurant at the Burj Al Arab hotel in Dubai. The iconic hotel has revealed details of the menu for the new restaurant Nathan Outlaw At Al Mahara.

The British chef is renowned for his seafood, and fishy dishes will play a key part of the new menu when the restaurant opens on 24th September, 2016. Open for lunch and dinner, the dining venue will have “down-to-earth, high-quality hospitality and a fun, buzzing atmosphere”.

One signature dish includes Lobster risotto with oranges, fresh basil and spring onions, a dish Nathan created for his first restaurant when he was just 24 years old. The chef learned how use all of the crustaceans or the whole fish to reduce waste. Crispy oysters and caviar will be another signature dish, and it will use Porthilly Oysters from Cornwall where Nathan is originally from. The third signature dish features a sweet treat with a Sticky Toffee Pudding recipe created by his 11-year-old daughter that helped her win the UK Sticky Toffee Championships. The dessert will be served with Jersey cream and dates, and apple jam.

Nathan stated:

"My style of cooking is one of simplicity but with complex flavour combinations, using top quality local, seasonal, responsibly sourced ingredients. This is what people can expect from the menu. I want the seafood to shine and the taste to make the impact. I like to hook it and cook it, simple and uncomplicated. Desserts are important, too, so they will play a starring role.”

The British chef will be leading the kitchen on the opening night of the restaurant and guests can enjoy cuisine prepared by him until 3rd October. Head chef Pete Biggs will then take over and will using Nathan’s customised menu to serve delicious cuisine to diners.

The 38-year-old seafood expert owns the two-star Michelin Outlaw’s Fish Kitchen restaurant in Cornwall, a Michelin star restaurant called Outlaws in Knightsbridge in London, and a traditional pub called The Mariners in Rock in Cornwall. Nathan was discovered by Anthony McHale, the managing director of Burj Al Arab when he coincidently dined at Outlaw’s Cornwall restaurant. He loved the food so much that asked the chef to come to Dubai.

The Nathan Outlaw At Al Mahara is part of the hotel’s refurbishment programme that also saw the addition of the new Burj Al Arab Terrace. The new area wraps around the hotel and has leisure facilities including two swimming pools, 400 sun loungers, 32 beach cabanas with personal butler service, a beach area, and the Scape Restaurant & Bar.
