City Social House is pleased to announce the highly anticipated launch of Row on 45, a luxurious and innovative fine dining concept curated by the renowned MICHELIN-Starred chef, Jason Atherton.
Row on 45 presents an extraordinary culinary voyage that brings together luxury, impeccable service, and creative cuisine to create a bespoke dining experience like no other.
Set to open its doors on 21st September 2023, Row on 45 showcases an aspiring journey that unfolds in three acts to ensure a highly intimate, exclusive, and tailored night for only 22 discerning diners. Immerse yourself in a 17-course Haute cuisine menu, inspired by Chef Jason Atherton’s career and his appreciation of worldly ingredients, meticulously handcrafted to dazzle you.
Row on 45 was born out of Jason Atherton’s vision for a luxury penthouse apartment in London, where he could welcome guests into his home and cook for them. Designed to resonate with a sense of accomplishment, Row on 45 embraces the very essence of refinement and elegance. The restaurant revolves around the idea of a celebrated old friend’s home, creating a warm and inviting atmosphere that delights and comforts you.
From the moment you step in, you will be enveloped in an atmosphere of sophistication and refinement, perfectly complemented by breath-taking views of Palm Jumeirah and Dubai Marina. Row on 45 takes pride in Chef Jason Atherton’s precise fine-tuning of each dish, to reveal a menu honed to perfection. Truly reflecting the essence of ‘Refinement of Work’ (ROW), Row on 45 promises to take you on an extraordinary and memorable adventure.
Chef Jason Atherton said “I’m pleased to announce that after 37 years of working in and owning MICHELIN-starred restaurants, I finally have the chance to work in a boutique yet luxurious 22-seater restaurant, crafted around a state-of-the-art kitchen. Here I am able to present an opulent tasting menu, with some of the finest ingredients on the planet, served alongside hand-chosen crockery, cutlery, and the finest glassware, as well as a beautiful wine pairing that my sommelier team has produced. I have used the skills I have grasped over many years working alongside some of the world’s greatest and most talented chefs to finally put together a menu which showcases the recipes I learnt along my food journey. I couldn’t be prouder to partner with Pam Wilby and the team at Grosvenor House to present all of this on the 45th floor, with outstanding views of the Dubai skyline, a chef’s curated playlist and an amazing experience to take you through my menu.”
Row on 45 takes bespoke fine dining to an unprecedented level featuring a stellar crew of chefs and sommeliers to guide you through a symphony of artisanal flavours presented in three acts.
