21 Grams is the latest addition to Dubai’s F&B scene, having opened on Jumeirah Beach Road.
The urban Balkan bistro aims to evoke memories of favourite recipes, the warmth and comfort of a family home and the smell of freshly baked pastries.
“Since I was seven-years-old, I’ve been drawn to the magic that food creation can bring,” said Stasha Toncev, Chief Soulkitchen Officer of 21 Grams.
“I have always loved hosting small gatherings for my friends to indulge in new dishes and recipes that I’ve created, which is what I’m looking forward to bringing to the UAE with 21 Grams.”
The bistro space has floor to ceiling windows, according to a spokesperson, and offers a light and welcoming indoor dining area bathed in warm tones, with a pastry counter and seating for 30, as well as an intimate outdoor area, with stunning balcony views overlooking Umm Suqeim Park.
“The extensive menu, carefully executed by a true Balkan Bedouin, Head Chef Uros, dishes up a fresh, authentic selection including a gypsy toast with kaymak and ajvar, with onions and red pepper, meat and cheese burek and traditional Balkan pies – as well as chocolate hazelnut baklava and other tempting sweets,” said the spokesperson.
