The Duck Hook is slated to open by mid-November 2018, while Hillhouse Brasserie plans to open its doors early December 2018.
JRG Dubai, the home-grown restaurant management company, is launching two brand new dining concepts at Dubai Hills Golf Club in the heart of Dubai Hills Estate.
The new outlets represent the first formal collaboration between JRG Dubai, the name behind hospitality brands such as Pierchic, Pai Thai, Trattoria Toscana, The Noodle House, and Flow with master developers Emaar Properties and Meraas.
Featuring views of the 18-hole championship course in Dubai Hills Estate, the Dubai Hills Golf Club outlets being overseen by JRG Dubai include The Duck Hook, a sporting country-style gastropub, and Hillhouse Brasserie, an upmarket boulangerie and brasserie.
The magnitude of the project has seen JRG Dubai employ the same hospitality team which brought international brands The Ivy and Rivington Grill to Dubai. According to Emma Banks, managing director of JRG Dubai, guests at The Duck Hook and Hillhouse Brasserie can expect the same inimitable and unique style, service, and attention to excellence.
“These exciting new concepts will become the culinary heart and lifestyle soul of this new residential and leisure community,” said Banks.
“While both new concepts will offer relaxed yet refined dining options, guests can be assured of the same signature brand elements common across JRG Dubai outlets. They will be top quality, guest-orientated and underpinned by the group’s commitment to sustainability and environmental responsibility.”
The Duck Hook promises an upgrade on the typical 19th hole experience, with classic gastropub favourites re-imagined by JRG Dubai’s culinary team. A characterful, raffish pub-style venue themed on country pursuits, The Duck Hook will offer classic pub grub meets modern European fare, while draught hops and an artful selection of house tinctures will appease diners.
Hillhouse Brasserie is a chic and casual all-day eatery and community hangout. During the family-friendly day vibe, Hillhouse Brasserie will serve coffee and hearty food. As the sun goes down, Hillhouse Brasserie will transform from a homely boulangerie into a brasserie where the focus on quality will align with value for money.
As per JRG Dubai’s focus on sustainability, both new restaurants will source local ingredients where possible, avoid single-use plastics and offer filtered local water rather than imported water.
