If you work or live near the Emirates Hills or even if you just take the Metro on this side of Dubai, you must have seen the picturesque Emirates golf course near the Nakheel station. The Emirates Golf Club usually plays host to several golf tournaments and was the first all-grass championship golf course in the Middle East when it opened in 1988.
What you might not know though is that it also plays host to a lot of amazing restaurants in the area. One of them is Le Classique which I visited last night. To be honest, I also didn’t know that they have restaurants inside the golf course, I was there about 2 weeks ago for Truckers DXB and I didn’t even notice them.
Le Classique is a fine dining restaurant with 28 years of experience and so they have a wealth of knowledge of the finest French ingredients, techniques and traditions. All of these delivered with award-winning levels of hospitality have kept guests returning year on year to enjoy an exceptional French dining experience in the heart of Dubai.
Anyway, I visited the place because I have learned that they have launched a new, innovative menu by the talented Chef De Cuisine Remi Verrier. He welcomed us when we arrived and he said that he has been tirelessly working on perfecting inspiring new dishes for the highly acclaimed A La Carte Menu.
So basically, what he does is he goes to each and every table as soon as guests are seated and ask diners what they want to have for the night. For example, if you want more meat or more fish, he will prepare something along those lines and this is what they call the Discovery Menu.
The Discovery Menu consists of three dining options, each with a select number of bespoke personalised courses that are created of course by Chef Remi. The decadent Discovery Menu allows guests to sample a variety of beautiful French eats, inspired by seasonal produce, textures, flavour and colours.
With comfy chairs, lovely weather and the view of the green golf course, it was very enjoyable sitting outside. It was also exciting because you never know what to expect although we already knew that every dish would be delicious.
When they started serving the food, we were in awe of the presentation as every dish looked like a masterpiece and was definitely Instagram worthy. The pacing was also commendable and the staff was knowledgeable about the food and the menu overall.
We finished the meal with these decadent desserts and what a night that was. It was really a great dining experience that everyone should try at least once. I would definitely recommend this and great job to Chef Remi for creating such distinct and delectable classics.
We tried the three-course menu called ‘Le Confiance’ at AED 330 per person but guests can indulge themselves in the five course Le Découverte option at AED 450 per person or even explore the nine-course journey – Le Dégustation at AED 560 per person.
