Caprice Holdings to launch Ivy Dubai in spring

Caprice Holdings has unveiled details of its forthcoming Ivy restaurant in Dubai, which will open in the Boulevard at Jumeirah Emirates Towers in spring.

Located on the ground floor of the 13,050sq m luxury retail development adjacent to the hotel, the restaurant marks the group's second venture in Dubai after the Rivington Grill, which opened in December 2008.

The Ivy Dubai will recreate the dining offer of the flagship restaurant in London. The menu is being created by Caprice Holdings group chef director Tim Hughes along with Ivy Dubai executive Colin Clague and head chef Simon Conboy and aims to be loyal to the original while also taking inspiration from local cuisines and ingredients. Dishes will include shepherd's pie, Thai baked sea bass and mixed beetroot and goats' cheese salad as well as Moroccan spiced rump of lamb with hummus, and harissa and smoked aubergine.

Interiors are being developed by Martin Brudnizki, who also designed the Club at the Ivy in London, Le Caprice in New York and Cecconi's in Los Angeles. Divided into a bar and lounge area, a 90-seat main dining room, a 16-seat private room and 100-cover enclosed terrace, it will recreate the London restaurant featuring oak panelling and harlequin stained windows.

Front of house will be overseen by general manager Sunil Kumar together with maitre d' Emmanuel Sabater.

Owned by Richard Caring, Caprice Holdings' London portfolio includes Scott's, Daphne's, Bam-Bou and two Rivington Grills as well as private members' clubs George, Mark's, Annabel's and Harry's Bar. The group's overseas restaurants include Daphne's Barbados, Le Caprice New York and Cecconi's Los Angeles.
