MMI opens new F&B outlets
MMI has opened a branch of Costa Coffee and a bar/restaurant at Souq Madinat Jumeirah, Dubai's hottest new retail destination.
MMI has opened two F&B outlets at the recently opened Souq Madinat Jumeirah.
One is a branch of Costa Coffee, for which MMI holds UAE franchise rights, and the other is Left Bank, an entirely new, home-grown concept described as a cross between a lounge, bar and restaurant.
The Costa outlet at Souq Madinat Jumeirah is the twelfth to open in Dubai. The shop is run by a specialist team of Costa Baristas (coffee experts) who graduated from a comprehensive training course at Costa Coffee College. The café overlooks the waterfront and has a view of the Burj Al Arab.
Left Bank is an entirely different concept. Its indoor area features relaxed lounge seating and day beds, high level bar seating and a dining area. Alternatively, patrons can opt for waterfront dining on Left Bank’s laid back terrace.
"Left Bank is designed to be a special place in Dubai, ‘dedicated to eating, drinking and less serious matters,’” says Guy Burdon, executive manager at Left Bank. “Customers can relax over coffee in the morning, have lunch with colleagues, a drink after work or share a meal with friends in the evening.”
The restaurant’s menu offers a mixture of world, Arabic and Mediterranean styles. Left Bank sits on the Dubai waterfront adjacent to the Mina A’Salam hotel, Souq Madinat Jumeirah and the Madinat Theatre. To cater to theatregoers, the restaurant offers a special 15 minute theatre menu.
