Grand Hyatt Dubai has appointed head chef Liz Nuñez to oversee the hotel’s steakhouse, Manhattan Grill.
Nuñez has been with Hyatt Hotels Corporation since 2011, having started out as a commis chef at Park Hyatt, Buenos Aires in her native Argentina.
She first moved to the Middle East in 2013 to join Grand Hyatt Doha, where she worked as chef de partie and sous chef before transferring to Grand Hyatt Dubai in March this year.
Nuñez has introduced a new menu for the steakhouse, with signature steaks, an enhanced meat platter and seafood dishes, including slow-cooked octopus.
The 674-key Grand Hyatt Dubai has 13 restaurants.
