Renowned for its creation of truly unforgettable moments, Waldorf Astoria Dubai Palm Jumeirah will launch the Unforgettable Secret Garden Brunch on September 2, 2016. The new brunch concept will create a secret garden experience, allowing guests to escape the Dubai heat and enjoy seasonal ingredients with live entertainment in a relaxed atmosphere.
Inspired by the Waldorf Astoria Dubai Palm Jumeirah’s bold approach on sustainability and the recent launch of the property’s organic garden, the brunch will feature live cooking stations with fresh and seasonal ingredients.
Upon arrival, guests can enjoy a specially curated summer menu in a family-style garden setting. Culinary delicacies include a colourful pickled vegetable bar and a freshly prepared organic, green salad made from herbs and flowers from the hotel’s own garden. Brunch classics such as seafood, grills, and Waldorf salad will also be on offer, complemented by a grand selection of French raw milk cheeses and freshly baked pies such as rhubarb, peach, and cherry.
Guests can sip fresh summer drinks such as the Waldorf Summer Cup - a classic medley of fragrant spirits and fruits - and home-made lemonade, and experience the water bar with creative combinations such as rosemary and peach, cinnamon and apple, and strawberry with basil from the organic garden - all whilst listening to the live acoustic sounds of the resident guitarist.
To raise awareness about organic produce among the younger guests, Executive Chef Jens Muenchenbach and his team will help children discover the Waldorf Astoria Secret Garden, giving them the opportunity to touch, taste, and learn the names of all that grows there.
Each guest will also receive a complimentary basil plant to look after and remember the Waldorf Astoria Brunch.
The Waldorf Astoria Secret Garden Brunch is available every Friday at Mezzerie, located on the lower ground floor, from 1:00pm to 4:00pm. During the cooler months, guests are invited to enjoy the brunch on the elegant outdoor terrace. The Waldorf Astoria Brunch is priced at AED345 for the non-alcoholic package, AED425 for the house beverage package, AED600 for the sparkling grape package and AED725 for the French bubbly package.
