Celebrity chef Michael Mina to open Firebird Diner in Dubai
Michelin-starred chef Michael Mina is set to bring his brand of gastronomic adventure to Dubai with the opening of Firebird Diner. Mina is renowned for his chain of popular restaurants across the US, including his eponymous eatery at the Bellagio, Las Vegas but this opening at the Four Seasons Hotel will be his debut in the region.
"I am thrilled to be partnering once again with the Four Seasons on such an exciting project," says Mina. "Being of Middle Eastern heritage, I couldn't be more pleased that our first project in the region is with such a trusted partner, and in such a vibrant part of Dubai."
An ode to the quintessential American diner, Firebird Diner will be designed by Adam Tihany, named by The New York Times as one of the greatest American interior architects. Then when it comes to the food, Mina's menus will include classic dishes but with a dose of the chef's personality, turning the traditional into something luxurious. These include the Elvis American toast, Ahi tuna tartare, Maine lobster corn dogs and chicken fried Wagyu steak. For those who prefer the traditional diner fare, there will also be a selection of burgers and shakes.
Firebird Diner by Michael Mina will be located at the Four Seasons Hotel DIFC when the hotel opens in March. Stay tuned to Buro 24/7 Middle East as we bring you more updates about this new culinary hotspot.
