Tucked away in a hotel garage on the edge of Dubai’s sprawling coastline, The MAINE Oyster Bar & Grill is a Seaside Brasserie devoid of any pretension or gimmickry.
As an expression of his North American roots, Montreal gastropreneur, Joey Ghazal, is serving up a slice of culinary nostalgia for those longing for an honest dining experience. Of course no brasserie experience is complete without a glistening raw bar that anchors the room serving seafood towers, fashionable crudo and oyster galore. Boasting crowd-pleasing brasserie fare the family style menu runs the gamut from steaks and chops, to fresh fish and seafood, to pot roasts and steamers, bolstered by a slim unpretentious wine list.
The long-bar at The MAINE attracts an eclectic crowd of young urbanites downing good old-fashioned cocktails by the bucket. Blending a post-industrial design aesthetic with a laid-back New England extravagance, the retro-vintage feel pays homage to the immortal charm of the state whose slogan justly proclaims 'The Way Life Should Be'.
