Fridays just got a whole lot livelier at Feast, where brunch is back with a bang – and a brand-new musical backdrop!
Hit local band Rita & The Rogues will play at the venue each weekend, starting from 8 September, sharing the fusion of soul, jazz, swing and Nineties hits that have won them fans across the emirate.
The trio, headed by glamorous singer Hayley Di Rito, will interact with guests as they perform, making the fun, family-friendly vibe even more lively. They have a repertoire of 101 songs that diners can request, so there will be sounds to suit most musical tastes.
“Feast offers a wealth of flavours from all over the world, so it makes sense to spice things up with equally eclectic entertainment,” said Robert Chlopinski, Chef de Cuisine at Sheraton Grand Hotel, Dubai.
“With food stations serving cuisine from Europe, Arabia and Far East Asia, there are dishes to suit every palate – all the more reasons to make Feast your default Friday destination.”
Chlopinski added that Feast’s chefs are of many nationalities and take pride in preparing authentic fare from their homelands. Each station will serve a signature handcrafted beverage inspired by a different region, while unusual choices will include such novel creations as 12-spiced salmon and ‘Lamb 26’.
Chefs at live cooking stations can prepare food to customers’ liking, taking them on a culinary journey from the street markets of Malaysia and northern Indian villages to the chicest of Continental cities. They’ll also greet guests and pass around taster-sized portions of their creations, inspiring diners to expand their culinary horizons and experience dishes they might not otherwise choose. Perfectly paired free-flowing beverages, including optional French fizz, will get the party going, and don’t forget to save room for something sweet. Also new for autumn is the chocolate table, a tantalising display of delectable cocoa-based desserts such as pralines, brownies, mud cake, cookies and mousse.
Kids will be kept busy with entertainment of their own in the Little Explorers’ Corner, where they’ll be able to use colouring books, play Lego and decorate cookies with the help of a chef. The children’s food is high-quality, authentic fare tailored to smaller tummies. Best of all, the brunch will end with a bumper prize giveaway, with guests winning prizes such as dining vouchers and luxurious spa treatments.
The Friday Feast brunch runs from 1pm to 4pm. Packages are priced AED 325 with soft drinks, AED 425 with house beverages and AED 595 with Moët & Chandon. To book, visit www.feastrestaurantdubai.com/en/brunch
