D&A takes top accolade at food awards in Dubai
Leading magazine BBC Good Food Middle East names D&A Best Contemporary British restaurant
Dubai, 29 January 2015: D&A, Jumeirah Restaurant Group Dubai’s home-grown British gastropub, is named Best Contemporary British restaurant at the BBC Good Food Awards. The ceremony, attended by Dubai’s culinary elite, highlights restaurants and brands that are the ones to watch for 2015. JRG Dubai dominated the category with D&A up against British benchmarks, The Ivy and Rivington Grill.
Located in Jumeirah Beach Hotel, the authentic British gastropub has gone from strength to strength following an extensive refurbishment at the beginning of 2014. Dedicated to delivering quality British cuisine, alongside craft bottled and draft hops within a refined pub atmosphere, D&A is a true slice of British foodie culture in Dubai.
Jean-Luc Naret, Managing Director of Jumeirah Restaurant Group Dubai says: “We feel very honoured that D&A has won this well-deserved award - a credit to the team. As the awards are voted for by the public, we are delighted to see D&A’s continued popularity with Dubai’s discerning diners.”
Adding another string to Jumeirah Restaurant Group Dubai’s bow is Luigi Vespero, Head Chef at The Rib Room, Jumeirah Emirates Towers, who was nominated for BBC Good Food Chef of the Year. The young chef narrowly lost out on the hotly contested title and continues to build his reputation as one of Dubai’s culinary leaders.
