Pleased to meet you, Sophie
Now who doesn’t love Okku, the UAE’s award-winning, locally developed Japanese restaurant and lounge concept – well the founders Markus Thesleff and Ramzy Abdul Majeed have opened what they call a new ‘gastro-cafe’, Sophie’s on Palm Jumeirah feeding a desire for home-style fresh and natural food. The menu boasts over 120 dishes on a rotating basis, including mains, salads, dips, homemade cakes and pastries – all created in-house from start to finish with a particular focus on whole foods, local produce and great taste. The interior has been beautifully designed to evoke tranquillity and health, while instilling a sense of community – from the large communal fired Acacia dining table to the forest and leaf wall prints and lime-washed ash furniture – with the added bonus of free Wi-Fi. Take-out is also available. We’re so glad for a new home-grown cafe brand. Delighted to meet you, Sophie.
INFO: Sophie’s, Building 8, The Shoreline, Palm Jumeirah. Open daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
