Oscar’s Opens its New Provençal Doors
Authentic home style French cuisine on the menu
Dubai, United Arab Emirates, 24 April 2012 - Oscar’s at Crowne Plaza Dubai, Sheikh Zayed Road, has officially opened its doors to welcome discerning diners into its refreshed interiors and escape into a Provençal hideaway.
The venue has created a new menu, which will still feature Oscar’s favourites, with a range of authentic home style French dishes that have been designed to share with friends and family.
“We want to create an atmosphere that encourages people to enjoy good food in a welcoming and lively atmosphere. The Provençal style of sharing works perfectly for Oscar’s as the venue is cosy and intimate so ideal for ordering a selection of dishes and enjoying them together.
“We source all of our key ingredients directly from France to keep the dishes as close to what you would find there and our own French baker creates a range of bread daily to give people a true taste of this region’s cuisine,” said Emmanuel Pauliat, Executive Chef, Crowne Plaza Dubai.
South eastern French cuisine is famed for dishes such as bouillabaisse, a rich seafood from Marseille, and Oscar’s will be serving its own version with a homemade rouille made from potato, garlic, olive oil and saffron. Other dishes include Pissaladière from Nice, which resembles a pizza but is made without the tomato base, instead it is topped with caramelised onions , black olives and anchovy fillets.
Chef Emmanuel will change the menu according to season and there will be dishes created based on the daily catch from local fisherman as well as a selection of seasonally available goats cheeses, olive oils and meat.
The restaurant will serve dinner 7 days a week from 6pm to 11pm, with the bar open until midnight from Friday to Wednesday and until 1am on Thursday. Call 800 (CROWNE) or 276963 for reservations.
