Phoenicia is located at both JA Beach Hotel at JA The Resort, Jebel Ali and JA Oasis Beach Tower on The Walk and aims to be an authentic neighbourhood eatery that celebrates the history of Middle Eastern Cuisine, sister publication Caterer Middle East reported.
To do that it has brought on Malouf to create the menus, with the Austalian-Lebanese chef offering contemporary twists on classic Middle Eastern food.
The menus include hazelnut falafel, sea bass sayadeeya, and a baklava ice cream sandwich, offered with a simple and rustic presentation.
Vice president of food & beverage at JA Resorts & Hotels Rob Cunningham commented: “We are confident that our guests are going to love Phoenicia, that’s why we have opened it in two locations. We are working with another multi award-winning chef - Greg Malouf - to create menus that we know will keep guests coming back for more. These are the classics you know and love, but with a fresh perspective and twist that Greg is renowned for.”
