Sean Connolly to open Dubai Opera restaurant in September
Dubai Opera is an architectural masterpiece and, along with seeing a show, visiting the venue is part of the experience. But until now there has been something missing…
Although the bar is busy shortly before a performance, the stunning space, which sits beside the Burj Khalifa and Dubai Fountain, is crying out for a restaurant.
Prominent chef Sean Connolly is stepping up to the task with a contemporary brasserie serving steak and seafood, opening this September. ‘Sean Connolly at Dubai Opera’ will have an informal menu that can be enjoyed in the main restaurant, bar, or the rooftop terrace.
This will be Connolly’s first restaurant in the Middle East, but with 25 years’ experience in the kitchen, he’s got the credentials to make people come back for more. During his time as a top chef he has become a household name for his number restaurants and TV shows.
This will no-doubt bring an extra piece of glamour to the 2,000 seat opera house. Since opening the venue has hosted sell-out shows with some of the world’s most popular West End and Broadway productions including Cats, Les Miserables and West Side Story.
