Thomas Keller. Thomas Keller.

Thomas Keller has opened his first restaurant in Dubai with the opening of Bouchon Bakery at The Beach, Jumeirah Beach Residence.

Keller the only American-born chef to simultaneously have two three-starred Michelin restaurants. The star count across his restaurants includes three at New York’s Per Se, three at The French Laundry one at Bouchon, both located in Napa Valley, California.

Guests can expect a wide selection of breakfast beverages and pastries. Freshly-made sandwiches, soups, quiches and salads will feature on the menu, in addition to the brand’s artisanal breads and viennoiseries.

French classics including the semolina almond financier, rosewater Paris brest, or lemon tart and signatures include Keller’s famous TKO cookie (Thomas Keller Oreo) and Bouchon Bakery’s bouchons – rich, chocolatey petite brownies filled with semi-sweet chocolate morsels.

Keller’s custom-blended ‘TK by Equator’ coffee, espresso, iced or traditional teas, or hand-crafted hot chocolate will also be on offer.

Identified by its green façade and antique cast iron street lamp, Bouchon Bakery’s were interiors created by designer Adam D. Tihany, a long-time friend and collaborator of Keller’s. The bakery is a traditional interpretation of a French boulangerie, mirroring Keller’s twist on classical French/American cuisine.

Set within The Beach, Jumeirah Beach Residence, Bouchon Bakery is open from 8am to 11pm weekdays and 8am to 12am on weekends.
