Beefbar Dubai opened on Monday, February 5, the sixth outlet for the chain, which also has eateries in Hong Kong, Mexico and Monaco, where it all started out.
The restaurant is housed in the space that formerly held Greg Malouf’s Cle in Al Fattan Currency House in DIFC. It promises “fresh and delicious cuts of meat” in a “fashionable, sophisticated venue,” according to Time Out Dubai.
There’s a raw bar with beef tartare and Black Angus carpaccio, Kobe burgers, Argentinian steaks and Dutch veal, and a butcher’s shop so the fine cuts can be cooked at home.
Beefbar was set up by Riccardo Giraudi, thanks to, unsurprisingly, his love of meat. It’s billed as “unpretentious food” for “discerning carnivores”. The restaurant itself will be operated under the auspices of Flavio Briatore, who said: “I am delighted to open one of the most sought-after restaurants in one of the most incredible cities in the world. Dubai is bursting with great restaurants and Beefbar will be a great addition to the region,” he said.
