Esquire Eats: Pier Chic Dubai
Perched right at the end of its very own pier, it’s no surprise that Pier Chic is widely credited for being one of the most romantic restaurants in Dubai.
But Pier Chic is also known for serving up some of the finest and freshest seafood in the city. Entrance to the restaurant is through Jumeirah’s Al Qasr hotel, followed by a buggy out to the pier.
The decor is bright, light and airy. It’s a stylish place to be sure, and of course, provides diners with incredible views of the Burj Al Arab in both the daytime and the nighttime. The real star here though is the food.
Pierchic specialises in modern European cuisine, though as its name suggests it favours French techniques and flavours above all else. Everything here is rather good; however the signature of the varied menu is the Shelebration Platter.
What elevates this seafood platter above all others, is the fact that everything on it has been sustainably sourced. Indeed, almost everything here has been sustainably sourced, right down to most of the drinks and the rest of the menu.
Otherwise, it’s a mixture of Canadian Lobster, Tiger Prawns, US Dived Scallops, Galician Octopus, Norwegian Salmon and Mediterranean Salmon. I mean, that’s a lotta fish.
