Internationally acclaimed Chef Masaharu Morimoto is set to open Morimoto Dubai, his first restaurant in the country.
The new venue will be located in the recently opened Renaissance Downtown Hotel offering an ever-changing selection of seafood which is drawn from markets around the world, including deliveries directly from Tokyo’s famed Tsukiji and Fukuoka fish markets.
Embodying the Chef’s culinary style, Morimoto Dubai’s menu will feature several of the Chef’s signature dishes, as well as traditional sushi served from a 24-seat sushi counter, a live teppanyaki counter headed by a teppan chefs from Morimoto’s Michelin-starred restaurant in Japan.
The venue’s expansive space boasts floor-to-ceiling windows, showcasing the Dubai skyline view for diners. Both levels feature outdoor terraces, including dedicated bars and lounge seating.
Guests looking to experience a more intimate setting can enjoy a meal in one of the individually designed private dining rooms, which can accommodate up to 22 guests or unwind at the centre stage bar which offers a menu curated by Shingo Gokan.
Morimoto Dubai will open in March and guests visiting in the first weeks can expect to catch a glimpse of Iron Chef Morimoto himself, who is set to visit his Dubai team every few months for continued coaching and menu development.
