The Market Kitchen, Le Royal Meridien, Abu Dhabi
The American menu is accented with Asian and French touches. Many dishes are infused with a twist on flavours to create unusual offerings such as black truffle and fontina cheese pizza, soy-glazed beef short ribs and salmon tartare with hazelnut and apple. We love the Parmesan-crusted chicken served with asparagus, basil and lemon butter.
The Market Kitchen concept focuses on locally-sourced quality produce. As a result, much of the menu changes with the seasons, which is how discerning foodies like it.
It’s a home away from home. The restaurant oozes warmth and is designed to give diners a feeling of being at home. Wooden flooring, warm lighting, casual decor strewn with trinkets and an olive tree in the middle of the room create a rustic vibe that suits the food.
Comfort food is the order of the day. The dishes are hearty and remind us of home-cooked meals from Grandma.
