Jumeirah Beach Residence - The Walk - Dubai
Award winning restaurant with a menu that reflects influences from the North African and Levant regions with an additional mix of Mediterranean dishes
Mourad Mazouz is the engimatic, multitalented visionary behind some of the world’s best restaurants, including the Michelin starred Sketch, in London. A true artist in his own right, Mourad has an uncanny knack of creating unprecedented food and beverage concepts across the world, renowned for the way they blend normally unfamiliar cuisine with design, music and art. Mourad is also the founder of the Mo’ Zik record label, which aims to create a diverse musical universe that crosses the boundaries of Eastern, Western, contemporary and traditional music.
With Almaz by Momo, Mourad has once again created a winner. The award winning restaurant uses only the freshest and finest ingredients, sourced locally to create a stunning, mouthwatering menu that reflects influences from North Africa (Mourad himself was born in Algeria) along with the Levant region. For added depth, the menu also feature a mix of Mediterranean dishes, with each and every dish lovingly prepared by a talented culinary theme including Executive Chef, Mohamed Ourad.
The restaurant itself is a visual feast, with décor resembling a beach outpost thanks to the careful use of light coloured wood and upholstery in colours that complement the sun, sky and sea. A global vision by Mourad, the restaurant is unique with elements sourced from all over the world.
The essence of bespoke nostalgia lies mostly amongst the unique furniture pieces – a few of which include wicker chairs and sofas upholstered in rich fabrics, rustic artefacts and a basketball net – that sit on custom-made psychedelic cement tiles. The commitment to authenticity goes beyond decor and cuisine, as the restaurant also has a small merchandise store on site, selling African inspired merchandise by popular Moroccan stylist, Norya Ayron.
Almaz by Momo is a chic and stylish retreat for those who crave unique cuisine and that magical feeling of being transported to another world…
