Taking up residency at the luxury Waldorf Astoria Dubai Palm Jumeirah hotel, Palm Avenue is a poolside restaurant that serves comfort food inspired by the sun soaked shores of California.
With space for both al fresco and indoor dining, this is an elegant and chic space which still manages to feel relaxed and peaceful. If you want to dine outdoors, opt for one of the poolside cabanas which offer up the perfect opportunity for post-swim snacking, while the restaurant’s terrace is the place to be in the evening, blessed with the backdrop of stunning views of the glittering Palm Jumeirah Island.
If you choose to enjoy your meal indoors, you will find a serene dining room complete with cream walls, cosy furnishings and ocean blue scatter cushions. On Palm Avenue’s menu, you will come across a selection of Californian inspired dishes, with plates to choose from including a decadent butter poached Boston lobster roll accompanied by French fries, and a spicy crispy chicken sandwich which is served in a brioche bun and slathered with chilli mayonnaise. The menu also features a dedicated taco section, with options including steak tacos and Baja fish tacos.
To finish up your meal, you can tuck into sweet treats, which take their inspiration from a little further afield than the US. Try out the tiramisu which hails from Italy, or opt for the baked apple tart with vanilla ice cream that is a traditionally British dish.
Come the evening, Palm Avenue transforms from a lunch and light-bites restaurant into a contemporary dining location and relaxing lounge. Guests visiting after sunset can sip on a selection of refreshing cocktails, while there is also the opportunity to enjoy some shisha on the terrace while taking in incredible sunset views of the Palm Jumeirah and Dubai’s awe-inspiring skyline.
