jg kitchen

If there are two things Dubai loves, they are trendy restaurants run by celebrity chefs and weekend brunches, and now one of the city’s newest restaurants has just launched weekend brunch for the first time. Michelin-starred French chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten recently opened two new restaurants at Four Seasons Resort in Dubai. JG Dining is his high-class offering, while JG Kitchen is a more casual affair.

In keeping with the casual Dubai weekend brunch tradition, JG Kitchen has just launched a New York-style weekend brunch. The restaurant only just opened over the summer, but already it is a huge success, becoming one of the city’s new favorite places to dine. JG Kitchen’s new weekend brunch menu is a natural extension of its preexisting lunch and dinner service.

Vongerichten has restaurants in 11 of the world’s biggest and most popular cities, making its start in New York City. In The Big Apple, brunch tradition involves serving up items a la carte style on Friday and Saturday, and this tradition has spread quickly in popularity in Dubai as well.
