Catch New York , a contemporary American seafood-restaurant, has opened its Dubai branch – and its first outside the US – in partnership with Global Hospitality Asset Management (GHAM) at the Fairmont Dubai.
Inspired by the NYC flagship venue in Manhattan’s Meatpacking District, the interior has been designed by Creative Clinic, and is meant to offer an industrial chic aesthetic with features including concrete, brick and copper walls, large bronze pillars, industrial fans and black and white geometric flooring.
The main dining room has tufted leather chocolate brown booths, with colors like orange, yellow and turquoise details throughout the space. Other interior elements include a reflective corridor and large faceted mirrors.
The seafood restaurant offers dishes in a sharing dining style led by head chef Bobby Griffing. The menu contains a wide selection of seafood, meat and vegetarian specialties.
Some items on the menu include tartare trio with salmon, hamachi, tuna, caviar & wasabi crème fraiche; crispy whole snapper with peppers, oyster mushroom, chilli, garlic; herb-roasted branzino with creamy vegetable, basmati and Wagyu short rib with 48-hour hoisin braise, sweet potato puree.
Dessert highlights include the s’mores pizza with burnt marshmallow ice cream & melted milk and dark chocolates.
In addition, there is an open hot kitchen, and a raw sushi and sashimi bar where the signature torched Catch Roll and local DXB Roll are prepared by sushi chef Yutaka.
Catch Dubai features two bars and a lounge that serves signature cocktails, with a choice of sake carafes, international wines and bubbles are also available.
