The Lana, Dorchester Collection, Dubai reveals culinary maestros 

Chef Jean Imbert will work on two concepts for The Lana, alongside Martín Berasategui and Angelo Musa

The Lana, Dorchester Collection, Dubai – when it opens in February, will introduce its collaboration with three famed chefs: Martín Berasategui, Jean Imbert and pastry Chef, Angelo Musa, for four new concepts (to join four others operated by the hotel team) at the first Dorchester Collection hotel to open in the Middle East.
A much-anticipated new destination, The Lana will pioneer a new era of dining to Downtown Dubai, a place carved from bold ideas and conceived to introduce the best of Dubai. With architecture by Foster + Partners, stunning spaces designed by Gilles & Boissier, and the service and guest-centric rituals that Dorchester Collection hotels are famed for, The Lana will undoubtedly become one of the city’s best locations for incredible dining and sophistication.

Jara by Martín Berasategui will be a new destination dining concept developed by Martín Berasategui, one of the world’s most acclaimed chefs who has collected 12 Michelin stars. Jara will be his first restaurant in the Middle East and the first of its kind in Dubai, serving Basque cuisine as well as pintxos and cocktails at Jara Bar by Martín Berasategui, both located on the 18th floor of the hotel.

Riviera by Jean Imbert will be a new modern Mediterranean restaurant inspired by Jean Imbert’s heritage and travels. It will be his first restaurant in the Middle East, complementing his existing relationship with Dorchester Collection, as he also leads the culinary team at Hotel Plaza Athénée in Paris. Riviera by Jean Imbert will evoke a breezy freshness and boundless sunshine, serving a-la-carte breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

High Society, located on the rooftop with a concept developed by Jean Imbert, will serve hotel guests at the pool during the day, only to become a vibrant lounge open for both hotel and non-staying guests from 5pm.

Bonbon Café Angelo Musa will be an entirely new pâtisserie concept serving viennoiseries, freshly baked bread, a range of chocolate bonbons and ice cream, as well as sandwiches, salads, and a range of bespoke cakes, bringing an air of Parisian sophistication and glamour. Renowned for pioneering avantgarde styles and creativity, Musa has also been awarded the title of Best Craftsman of France and is widely celebrated as the World’s Best Pastry chef.

Set to open on February 1, 2024, The Lana, Dubai, is one of the most anticipated hotel openings in the UAE. Located in the heart of Downtown Dubai, overlooking the vibrant Business Bay area, The Lana will open with 225 guestrooms and suites alongside The Lana Residences.
