Premium catering company, Chez Charles has revealed more details of its first restaurant, which is set to open in Dubai Design District (D3) in the first quarter of 2017.
The contemporary brasserie will serve wholesome French cuisine with a diverse menu offering light dishes and rich and indulgent French favourites paired with a selection of grape and cocktails.
Chez Charles founder and CEO Charles Boghos commented: “With a growing demand and loyalty for Chez Charles in the UAE, we felt that it was the right time to extend into a permanent location, hence the birth of Chez Charles Restaurant. Through this contemporary style brasserie strategically housed in the prestigious Dubai Design District, we will be able to offer the Chez Charles’ dining experience to a wider audience.
“Chez Charles is all about quality across the board. We always begin with the ingredients, the freshness and seasonality of our produce, and build the menu accordingly. Based on this philosophy we always have a delectable menu using the most in-season fresh produce with new dishes constantly being added.”
Designed by AAC interiors, the 5,400ft2 space features a custom-built chandelier, an indoor bar and dining area and an outdoor lounge and private dining area.
At the helm of the kitchen – the restaurant’s centerpiece set behind clear glass – is Michelin-starred chef Jeremy Degras, Chez Charles group executive chef.
Commenting on the opening of Chez Charles’ first restaurant, Degras said: “Because we have been defined by our cuisine since the inception of the brand, we wanted to create a restaurant environment which embodies our desire to produce gastronomical dishes rooted in traditional French cuisine using modern cooking techniques, which are conceptualised by the produce and the ingredients – this is where the core of Chez Charles lies.”
