Luxury shopping and dining destination The Galleria will roll out its Dining Collection portfolio with the opening of La Petite Maison, Roberto’s, Coya, Nusr-Et, Loca, Eat Greek, and Sa-Mar.
The restaurants – marking their debut in the UAE capital – will open between Q4 2016 and the end of 2017.
Daniel Parry, managing director of Gulf Related commented: “The Galleria continues to affirm its position as the luxury shopping destination of Abu Dhabi; we are very excited to enter the next phase of our journey. Creating The Dining Collection and bringing together world class brands, will further enhance our lifestyle offering and revolutionise the culinary scene of the capital.”
The new restaurants join the existing portfolio of dining experiences in The Galleria: Zuma, Bentley Bistro & Bar, Nolu’s, Almaz by Momo, and Emporio Armani Caffe.
This is in addition to the signature restaurants in the Rosewood Abu Dhabi – Sambusek and Dai Pai Dong – and Butcher & Still and Cafe Milano to open in Four Seasons Hotel Abu Dhabi at Al Maryah Island.
Charles Martinez, general manager of The Galleria and VP of Gulf Related said: “This is incredibly important news for the capital. Abu Dhabi’s dining scene has been progressing solidly over the past few years, but this will propel it forward into the spotlight.
“Each of the restaurants have been chosen as a result of its outstanding quality, unique brand values and overall commitment to innovation. The expansion of The Dining Collection will allow us to redefine ourselves as a luxury shopping and dining destination.”
The Galleria on Al Maryah Island, which opened in August 2013, houses 130 retailers and licensed and unlicensed chef-driven restaurants and cafes.
