Fast, fresh and interactive dining at Sloane’s
Grosvenor House has unveiled its all-day dining concept - Sloane’s – complete with working show kitchens showcasing fresh, contemporary international food, cooked to order.
The bustling open-plan restaurant will move away from traditional buffets with chafing dishes; instead, chefs will be on hand to prepare a daily menu of dishes, as well as tandoori, wok works, induction, rotisserie and pizza ovens.
There will be no a la carte menus, and a set price for meals, which general manager Pam Wilby says is the perfect solution for an all-day dining venue.
She said: “While it will be one of the principal outlets for hotel guests and apartment residents, we really see Sloane’s coming into its own at lunchtimes, whether for conference breaks or business lunches. The food will be of the same standard as anywhere else in the hotel, yet with the time and menu flexibility that comes from a brasserie like that.”
Located on the mezzanine level of the hotel, Sloane’s will seat 120 throughout the restaurant, as well as 40 outside on the terrace with stunning views overlooking the Dubai Marina.
The restaurant décor will echo contemporary European style, with brightly coloured ceramic bowls and serving dishes.
Executive chef Patrick Lannes said: “We’ve taken every little aspect into consideration so that Sloane’s will have a vibrant atmosphere throughout the day. At breakfast you will smell the fresh bread baking and smell the sausages, before lunch and dinner are buzzing with international smells such as roasting chickens or pizzas in the oven.”
The hotel will have 217 sea-facing rooms, while the 205 apartments will offer stunning marina views, and three of the signature touches will be plasma televisions in all rooms, personalised butler service and 24-hour room service, in addition to the use of beach and pool facilities at the adjacent resort.
The top 11 floors will be dedicated to the Grosvenor Club, premium executive accommodation whose guests will also have access to the 44th floor dedicated lounge that will provide an unrivalled observation deck over Dubai.
