Three-star Michelin chef opens first UAE outlet
'Social by Heinz Beck' opens in Waldorf Astoria Dubai Palm Jumeirah
Three-star Michelin chef and author Heinz Beck has opened the New York-inspired 'Social by Heinz Beck' at the Waldorf Astoria Dubai Palm Jumeirah.
Beck's latest venture at the Waldorf Astoria Dubai Palm Jumeirah will offer a wide range of creatively adapted foodie favourites – served with a hallmark Beck twist – as well as signature dishes including grilled tuna with wasabi mayonnaise, almonds and amaretti to start and soya poached beef fillet with black truffle and radicchio stuffed for mains.
The desserts reflect the chef’s originality, including his secretive signature dessert, Raspberries 1.0.
"We are tremendously excited to work with Heinz and to bring his ideas and skills to Dubai in a new and fine-casual format,” said Waldorf Astoria Dubai Palm Jumeirah general manager Jan Moenkedieck. “His unique interpretation of the ‘modern kitchen’ is certain to prove popular.”
Beck said: “Dubai is enjoying a growing reputation as a great culinary destination and I am delighted to add my own concept to the city’s vibrant gastronomic community. My aim for Social is to offer diners fresh, contemporary cuisine in an uncomplicated and welcoming setting.”
With over 20-years culinary experience, Beck is famous for his tenure at La Pergola - the 3-starred Michelin restaurant at the Rome Cavalieri, Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts.
