Acclaimed chef Jason Atherton is all set to open his first restaurant in Middle East, Marina Social, in the third quarter of 2015 at Intercontinental Dubai Marina. It will be a waterfront diner, hosting a deformalised fine-dining experience, with an adjoining bar called The Social Room.

The restaurant will serve British fusion cuisine, in a classic social setup. The idea is to offer Michelin star quality food without pretence, encouraging people to come over for both a quick bite and a relaxed meal, or enjoy the selection of drinks and snacks at the bar.
