In the realm of celebrity chefs, French native Yannick Alléno is of the highest regard. After all, he's fast-building a global culinary empire, and his efforts in Paris include the restaurant at Le Meurice, for which he was awarded three Michelin stars. So his debut in Dubai — with three restaurants at the One&Only The Palm — was one of the city's most anticipated.
At STAY, Alléno integrates classic French cooking with contemporary techniques. It's fine French food, but not at all pretentious, along with a pastry counter where desserts are custom-made. Just like the visual wonders on the plate, the restaurant has style to spare, from the high timber walls and white pillars, to the vaulted ceiling dripping with black chandeliers. There are more than a few reasons to stay here.
