It’s a feast, it’s a treat, it’s Atlantis, The Palm, Dubai’s Culinary Month

There’s no place like Atlantis, The Palm in Dubai for foodies from 18th October to 25th November with the fourth edition of the Culinary Month.

There’s a generous helping of Michelin star chefs and food at Atlantis, The Palm’s Culinary Month. A culinary destination like no other, the fourth edition of the event boasts an itinerary you can’t miss. 

Leading internationally renowned restaurants will now be accessible at a fraction of the cost during the Atlantis Restaurant Week. Seven signature restaurants including Nobu, Hakkasan, and Seafire Steakhouse & Bar will offer special menus. 

If the unbelievable deals on dinners weren’t enough, there are also dedicated celebrity chef visits and exciting collaborations to look forward to. It’s almost surreal to imagine learning and eating with Michelin-starred Giorgio Locatelli, world-famous Nobu Matsuhisa, as well as Four Hands dinner experiences from Dubai’s best local chefs. 

The artist, of course, is as important as the art. Mohamed Essawy, a Dubai-based artist, a loyal customer of Atlantis, is also the man behind the art. His eclectic and modern style combines disparate and even interdisciplinary elements with experimental mixed media.

So if truffle week or Gordon Ramsay’s signature beef wellington sound like alluring prospects, this Culinary Month is going to be your gateway to bliss. With an array of experiences designed to satiate your hunger, you’ll be spoilt for choice. 

Atlantis Restaurant Week

The Restaurant Week essentially offers diners a chance to indulge without breaking the bank. A three-course set menu at any of the resort’s seven signature restaurants can now be yours for a negligible cost. 

Dig into a scrumptious three-course set menu, featuring signature dishes such as Ronda Locatelli’s wagyu striploin, grilled Spanish octopus at WHITE Beach, and Ayamna’s must-try mezze and mixed grill. For a slightly steeper price, diners can also explore a three-course set menu with the likes of Nobu’s black cod miso and the award-winning savoury short rib donuts at Seafire Steakhouse & Bar.

Meet a Celebrity Chef

Culinary Month has truly outdone itself with Nobu Matsuhisa’s nine-course Omakase menu. The once-in-a-lifetime opportunity allows for diners to sample exquisite dishes including Nobu Matsuhisa’s most-loved menu items from his lifetime of cooking. Presented by the legendary chef himself, the menu offers a selection of sashimi four ways, Nobu-styled cup sushi, and more.
