The most creative and fashionable area of Dubai called Dubai Design District has recently received new Molecule restaurant. The most famous critics are sure that this venue will change the entire field of luxurious cuisine. The restaurant is based on bistronomy concept and supports creativity and design. The interior and the atmosphere of the venue were created by the most famous architects, designers, artists and even musicians.
Tasty, exquisite and really fast
The concept of bistronomy was implemented by Udo Moreau, who has already launched numerous exclusive restaurants in London and Paris. Eight of his venues have already received Michelin stars, which are ones of the most famous and prestigious awards in the field of restaurants and culinary art.
After working in Europe for many years in a row, Udo Moreau decided to bring French charm and elegance to the UAE. After checking all the most expensive and exclusive restaurant in Dubai, Udo Moreau couldn’t find a place that would offer a comfortable atmosphere and reasonable prices at the same time.
One of the most creative areas in Dubai has recently received new Molecule restaurant that totally changes the modern cuisine according to the most famous critics. It’s based on the concept of bistronomy implemented by Udo Moreau, who has already received 8 Michelin stars.
The field of bistronomy appeared in France at the beginning of 2000. The term bistronomy was invented by Sebastian Demouran after a visit to a small bistro called La Régalade that was founded by the famous French cook Yves Camdeborde. He managed to combine the exquisite cuisine with the simplicity of street bistros.
The menu at Molecule may look a bit simple at the first glance. It offers mainly European and French dishes. The key difference is that all of them are made from fresh season products, and added with unique oriental elements and ingredients. As a result, the chef is able to create something truly unique. When the waiter brings the plate, guests are able to enjoy a masterpiece created by a talented artist.
For example, such a simple dish, as the baked eggplant is served with traditional labneh cheese and pomegranate. Before tasting the main course, one needs to try the Molecule salad that is the featured dish in the venue. The recipe was created especially for the restaurant, and it may include various ingredients depending on the season of the year. Such approach allows keeping the salad incredibly fresh and juicy.
We recommend choosing baked chicken as the main course. Chicken is stuffed with labneh cheese and fresh greens. Lamb's ribs are even more attractive and tasty. Well-cooked ribs are covered with a caramelized sauce that creates an incredible mix of tastes. Tender mashed potatoes and famous Italian spaghetti are offered as the side dish. Spaghetti are served with an original sauce that opens a new dimension of taste.
Don’t forget about the desserts. They are simply hilarious here – soft cakes with light crème, crusty and fresh pastry, oriental sweets and Italian ice-cream.
You want to taste all of the dishes, especially when you see other people enjoying their culinary masterpieces. No doubt it’s impossible to taste all of them during one visit, but the waiter will definitely offer you something really worthy.
Art Gallery and Molecule Radio
During the first visit to the restaurant, you need to have a lot of time. You won’t wait in the queue because two halls can serve only 55 people, and you don’t have to spend an hour until the dish is finally ready. The thing is that Molecule offers an incredibly comfortable and immersing atmosphere.
The interior was created by a Lebanese designer, who managed to combine the traditional design with the modern materials. The workers of famous Nomad Inception boutique decorated the walls, the ceiling, and the floors. They managed to break all the rules of geometry, following the original Arabic style. By the way, one of the walls in the restaurant is used as the art gallery of the oriental artists. New paintings are added every 3 months.
Molecule also offers designer dishes and cutlery. The unique set was created by Design Ras Al Khor. However, the most unique and unusual thing is the own station called Molecule Radio. It’s always on in the restaurant and can be listened on the official website of the venue.
