Atelier House Hospitality has launched their first concept in Dubai, Mohalla, in Dubai Design District.
Translating to my neighborhood or my community in several languages, Mohallah is an ode to the flavorful cooking of the community neighborhoods of India.
The restaurant aims to provide the same authenticity known to the Indian childhood, complemented by contemporary interiors and an enchanting atmosphere. The design features stunning, warm interiors that project the essence of the raw and urban industrial environment. Interior designer, Samar Zakhem, took an immersive effort into the cultural roots in designing and detailing Mohalla. The restaurant features an art wall, which is a custom hand sketch of an Indian street, hidden passages within the shutters to depict old and new India, custom designed carpets from Gujarat, and peacock chairs, which illustrate the national bird of India.
The company chose the home of Mohalla to be in the Dubai Design District because it embodies the ideal location to offer street food in style, bringing rural eating to a vibrant and creative urban setting. Mohalla will offer unexplored dishes from rural places of India tantalising the palate with lost cuisines and various food cultures within the country.
