As part of the opening, Verve bar & brasserie has made several appointments, including Michelin-trained head chef, Jorge Grande, who will work alongside fellow chefs Nick Alvis and Scott Price.

Grande worked under world-renowned chef, Anand Gaggan, who is famous for his two-Michelin Star restaurants in Bangkok.

Other appointments include Francesco Carbone as general manager, who will be responsible for managing operations at the bar and brasserie. Prior to taking over the role at Verve, Carbone was involved with launching La Petite Maison in Dubai, Billionaire Mansion, Sumosan Dubai, Galvin Dubai and Le Cirque Dubai.

Verve said Carbone’s experience in the hospitality made him the “perfect fit” as general manager for the restaurant.

Verve will also have a centrepiece bar, with a beverage menu and wine listings. The bar will be headed up by bar manager, Keagan Van Dyk, who has experience in Dubai bars such as The Maine Oyster Bar & Grill, Weslodge Saloon and Axe House Dubai.
