Chef Greg Malouf’s restaurant opens in Dubai
Updated on 16 May 2017

Zahira, award-winning chef Greg Malouf’s latest venture, has opened its doors to the public. Expect an elevated (read: stylish) take on traditional Levantine cuisine. The menu groups dishes under themed categories, so expect to see the Art of Mezza, Art of Sharing, Art of the Garden and the Art of Sweet Design and Tradition on the list. Note: the food is a work of art that will make your heart jump. If you’re after something more elaborate, opt for the Art of Feasting, a nine-course tasting menu that will change regularly. The restaurant is open from 6pm to 2am. www.zahira.ae
