Sayad to offer new impressive selection of ocean fresh seafood
Seafood lovers will be on a promise from 5th October 2009 to taste new exclusive delicious treats and irresistible choices prepared by the Emirates Palace's flagship seafood restaurant Sayad.
Sayad Chef de Cuisine Andrew Mc Gie said he was determined to keep the high profile standing of Sayad as the favourite meeting and dining venue for hotel guests from politicians, sportsman,
movies stars, singers and other celebrities who stay or dine in the opulent hotel either for relaxed luxury vacationing or on business.
''Sayad offers a wonderful savoring blend of appeal and excitement in terms of the diversified, delicious menu, high class service and exotic ocean-derived ambience,'' said the young Australian chef.
''The new A la Carte menu, comprised of fresh varieties of fish, caviar and lobster specially imported from Australia and Europe will showcase a first for Abu Dhabi with a unique seasonal menu that combines contemporary cuisine, the freshest and highest quality produce with perfect presentation'' he said. “The finest oysters direct from Australia, King Crab Legs from Norway, Caviar from Iran, Fois Gras from France and desserts unique to the Sayad kitchen to compliment your meal to perfection”
Speaking about his passion for his profession, he said ''cooking is an art in itself which brings the spirit of an artist and creativity of a chef together. I came to Emirates Palace from London , explains Andrew McGie where I have worked in highly reputed hotels but Emirates Palace and Sayad Restaurant provide me with the opportunity to push all boundaries as we work as a team to create a unique culinary experience to delight and tease your taste buds to new heights of pleasure”.
''Sayad has a well established clientele and the appeal of seafood today offers our diners benefits beyond taste, since it helps keep the mind and body healthy, it is clean, fresh as well as tempting'' he noted.
Medical researchers are offering yet another reason to enjoy fresh sea produce. A University of Pittsburgh study shows that people who eat seafood, such as salmon, that’s high in Omega-3 fatty acids are generally more agreeable and well balanced in a positive frame of mind. Recommended as part of a balanced diet, seafood is a great source of protein and can also be low in fat.
Sayad is offering a new menu with the best seasonal produce. Favourite classic dishes such as Seafood Platter and Mixed Grill continue with the unique new King Crabs Legs and Cured Salmon dishes. Try the degustation menu for a taste of a selection of Sayad signature dishes. The menu will reflect the changing seasons and so provide you a calendar of tempting dishes to savor.
