Grove Road, the newest gastronomic venture from the team at award-winning cafe BYSTRO, has opened at The Pointe West on the Palm Jumeirah.
Taking inspiration from Australia’s culinary capital, Melbourne, Grove Road dishes up unfussy fare and drinks with full views of The Pointe’s record-breaking fountains.
For long-time hospitality professional & owner Josh Benson, the opening of the new concept named for his childhood street was about bringing a slice of Australian hospitality to Dubai diners: “Grove Road really captures the spirit, diversity and quality of Melbourne’s food scene with reimagined yet classic gastro fare. With Grove Road, we wanted to offer a family-friendly place that was unpretentious, welcoming, and serious about food, but seriously easy going.”
Appetisers start from AED 50 and include Avocado Tartare with celery, capers, picked ginger, soy mayo & scallions, and Malaysian Clams tossed in garlic, ginger, herbs and butter, among others. Robust salads include a Beetroot salad, a Supefood Salad, as well as a Halloumi Salad.
A Classic Cheeseburger and a New England Lobster Roll feature in the Bread section of the menu, while Main dishes start at AED 80 and include Sichuan Spiced Lamb Cutlets with sautéed Chinese greens & sesame oil; Whole Seabass, served with a fragrant red curry and papaya salad; a Seafood Platter for two, and classic Fish & Chips, alongside other seafood, steak, duck, pasta, and vegetarian dishes.
