DUBAI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES -- (Marketwired) -- 06/27/13 -- The Ritz-Carlton, Dubai is proud to announce the debut of its all-new Asian dining concept -- Blue Jade -- a premier restaurant on the JBR serving up the city's most authentic line-up of dishes from the Far East. Helmed by Vietnamese Chef Ta Van, the Pan Asian restaurant will bring a combination of classic fare with a contemporary style and presentation from Asia's most feted culinary destinations to the city.
"Blue Jade's concept is all about celebrating the mystique and authenticity of Asian cuisine in a single resort setting. Diners are taken into an enchanting journey through the East with a unique harmony of exotic aromas and authentic flavors. It is a true showcase of the distinctiveness of each Asian cuisine while allowing guests to discover the common thread that binds them all," said Mr. Raul Salcido, General Manager, The Ritz-Carlton, Dubai.
Chef Ta Van, who was born and raised in Ha Nam in the northern part of Vietnam, has created a menu that offers guests a one-of-a-kind Asian dining experience through a diverse selection highlighting the cuisine from his homeland as well as the gastronomic culture of various Asian countries. He has also tapped into a rich trove of family recipes, including a mouthwatering Ginger Sea Bass wrapped in Lotus Leaf, a dish created by his grandmother. Other signature highlights include rice paper rolls from Vietnam, tom yum soup from Thailand, black pepper crab from Singapore and miso black cod from Japan.
"The restaurant complements the legacy of the resort in terms of crafting an exquisite dining experience in an intimate yet luxurious atmosphere. With its elaborate menu, which takes its inspiration from the authentic family-based culinary traditions of the Far East, combined with exclusive and intuitive Ritz-Carlton service, Blue Jade will cater to the city's most discerning food lovers of Asian fine dining," added Mr. Salcido.
Blue Jade is named after the talisman of peace and tranquility that is highly regarded in Asia. The qualities associated with the restaurant's namesake are reflected in its magnificent ambiance where elegant tunes of Asian instruments blend seamlessly with its contemporary design of rich color palette of amber and wood. Widely framed windows open to the terrace that overlooks the tropical gardens of the luxury resort and the Arabian Gulf, setting a mood similar to an Asian sea-side restaurant, whilst the open kitchen provides diners with an exemplary Asian spectacle -- a showcase of culinary artistry by the chefs as they prepare the dishes.
