The Fish Market at Radisson Blu Hotel, Dubai Deira Creek has re-opened following a complete refurbishment with a fresh look, an updated menu and a new logo.
While the restaurant has retained favourites such as fish curry and lemon butter prawns, three new menus have been introduced – a wine menu, a cocktail menu and a new food menu with seafood, bar bites and vegan dishes.
The new fish market will keep its fresh fish on ice display and market concept, however it has added its own oyster shucker, dessert mezzes, a wine cellar with 100+ bottles and two large sharing tables among other new features.
Designed by PATH, the interiors feature aquamarine tones, semi-private couches, walnut floors, Mediterranean-inspired tiles and designer chairs, reflecting the waterside location and the heritage of old Dubai.
Timber flooring echoes the feeling of being on the deck of an Abra, while gold and brass features are reminiscent of the nearby souks and travellers’ palm plans are a reference to the trade and commerce that has defined the history of the Creek.
The restaurant first opened in 1989 and has since served one million kilos of fish, 500,000 kilos of prawns and has shucked over 100,000 oysters.
The focus of the outlet is serving the freshest locally and sustainably sourced seafood.
The Fish Market became the first member of the World Wildlife Fund Sustainable Seafood program in Dubai, supporting responsible fishing for both wild-caught and farmed seafood with the aim to harvest with zero environmental impact.
