Dinner By Heston Blumenthal Launches Its First Sunday Lunch At Atlantis The Royal

Renowned for its award-winning experiential dining experience, Dinner by Heston Blumenthal is now open every Sunday for a quintessentially British Sunday lunch with new dishes including a traditional roast.

One Michelin star restaurant, Dinner by Heston Blumenthal, has introduced a new lunch experience every Sunday from 12pm to 3pm at Atlantis The Royal. Priced at AED 495 for adults and AED 295 for children, diners can look forward to a three-course lunch featuring a curated menu inspired by the tastes and flavours of Britain dating back as far as the 14th century. Guests can anticipate savouring new dishes, including a classic roast with all the trimmings along with Dinner by Heston Blumenthal’s iconic dishes such as the Tipsy Cake (c.1858).

Collaborating with food historians and tapping into the world of the British Library, Sunday lunch at Dinner by Heston Blumenthal, promises a unique blend of edible history and storytelling. Starters include the creatively disguised Meat Fruit (c.1500), which appears to be a Mandarin but is actually a chicken liver parfait, Tomato Salamagundy (c.1723), an interpretation of the original forms of salads, with compressed tomato, smoked goats curd, and a beautiful lovage oil, to Hay Smoked Salmon (c.1847), featuring smoked beetroot and parsley.

For the main course, families and friends alike can indulge in the beloved Sunday roast, featuring options like Hereford Sirloin (c.1788) with Yorkshire pudding, horseradish cream and beef gravy; Roast Chicken (c.1672) with veal and herb stuffing, bread sauce and chicken gravy as well as Roast Cauliflower with Truffle Sauce (c.1661), the ultimate vegetarian option. Plus, indulgent trimmings including buttered bay carrots, savoy cabbage and beef pancetta and onions.

Heston believes 'roasties' (Roast Potatoes (c.1664) are the most important aspect of cooking a Sunday Roast. While the Yorkshires, vegetables and gravy can all be pre-prepared and the meat can be held at serving temperature, roasties wait for no one. Much like the triple cooked chips, when cooking roast potatoes, the aim is for a glassy crispy texture which are perfectly soft inside. As part of the roast experience, the meats are cooked using Heston’s long established techniques of low temperature cooking to produce the ultimate mouth-watering roast that will satisfy all taste buds.

For those looking to end lunch on a sweet note, Dinner by Heston Blumenthal offers three irresistible desserts including the Tipsy Cake (c.1858). Taking his lead from the arrival of the first pineapples to the English court in 1700, Heston devised a feather light, brioche cake that has been lightly basted in Sauternes wine, it is served with slices of roasted pineapple that have been slowly roasted on a spit for up to six hours. While The Lemon Tart (c.1747), a zesty lemon custard with buttery shortcrust pastry and Bohemian Cake (c.1648) a dark chocolate ganache, filled with cherry and served with almond ice cream are also sure to go down a treat. Plus, little ones of the family can look forward to special offerings such as the Salmon, Mini Roast, and the ever-popular Liquid Nitrogen Ice Cream Trolly (c.1901).

Served à la carte, diners will also be able to experience Head Sommelier at Dinner by Heston Blumenthal’s carefully curated wine menu. Named Sommelier of the Year in the Michelin Guide 2023 – Dubai, Arturo Scamardella showcases over 900 references each handpicked for the beautiful wine cellar located at the front of the restaurant.
