British chef Nathan Outlaw is ending the association he has had with Burj Al Arab seafood restaurant Al Mahara since 2016, sister title Caterer Middle East reported.
Outlaw put his name to the concept two and a half years ago but the pair have decided to mutually end the partnership with Jumeirah.
It comes as Michael Ellis, Jumeirah chief culinary officer, told Caterer Middle East last week that the brand was looking to bring in “international” talent that would be announced in the upcoming weeks.
Cornwall-based celebrity chef Outlaw currently operates the two-Michelin star Restaurant Nathan Outlaw and one-star Outlaw’s Fish Kitchen, both in his home county, but has also this year ended his partnership with Cornish pub The Mariners, after a five year spell, and his seven-year association with London’s Capital hotel.
Outlaw is set to open a brasserie-style restaurant at The Goring Hotel in Belgravia, London later in the year.
