Highly anticipated restaurant Carine at the Emirates Golf Club offers a mouth-watering selection of French Mediterranean inspired dishes and unique cocktails in a menu curated by Dubai’s one and only Chef Izu Ani.
Carine comes as a fresh and trendy addition to the fast-paced ever-evolving Dubai dining scene. Initially open daily for dinner, each experience will be unique and won’t disappoint. Thanks to a combination of thoughtfully sourced ingredients and expertly executed dishes, carine has found the recipe for success. It is a space that encourages diners to relax and unwind, spending hours with family and friends whilst enjoying outstanding food – a true change from the busy and overwhelming atmosphere of many of the city’s dining outlets.
Centrally located at the Emirates Golf Club with modern décor and an unpretentious French charm, carine is simply phenomenal, with an atmosphere that is sunny and bright and welcoming service. It also offers an expansive terrace doling out fabulous views of the golf course framed by Dubai’s famous skyline; it is a light, bright inviting venue with floor-to-ceiling windows ensuring that indoor diners can also take advantage of the stunning views.
Not forgetting, of course, carine’s secret weapon in the shape of Chef Izu Ani himself. Having already created a name for himself thanks to the success of The Lighthouse, La Serre and La Petite Maison and Izu Brasserie & Bakery, the chef has now opened carine as a tribute to his wife Carine. This is where the personal touch comes in; the restaurant is filled with all of Carine’s personal favourites from freshly baked breads inspired by the bakery she used to work in in Northern France, to her own homemade plum and apple jam, to Mediterranean specialities and of course, to-die-for desserts – the passionfruit cheesecake is sublime.
Guests will keep coming back for renditions of intriguingly seasoned crispy calamari, creamy burrata, citrusy tuna carpaccio, fragrant harissa prawns and a tarte flambée bursting with sweet smoky onions that will raise the bar for tartes across the city. Plats Principaux, meanwhile, include a range of inventive fish, meat and pasta dishes – the lobster linguini is a saucy, silky number.
What’s more, unique mixology offers region-specific cocktails incorporating special selections of herbs, shrubs and bitters for special cocktail-paired dinners.
From long lazy family dinners to romantic date nights and large gatherings with friends, you will find yourself returning again and again!
Carine is open daily from 7 pm until 11 pm and is now taking reservations. For more information please visit: www.carine.ae.
