Upscale venue offers taste of the Med

Fine dining aficionados in Dubai have another reason to cheer with the launch of a new restaurant offering Catalonian and Mediterranean cuisine at the Four Seasons Hotel DIFC in Dubai, UAE. 

Lavishly appointed and with a sophisticated and urbane ambience, LaLuz which sprawls over an expansive area, with separate lounge, bar and dining spaces, is one of the city's most upscale restaurants and lounges, the hotel said. 

LaLuz also boasts of an open air terrazzo that can be used for outdoor hospitality in good weather. 

Overseeing the output of LaLuz's bespoke kitchen and culinary team is Executive Chef, Alain Devahive. Over the years, Alain has earned high praise from an international audience of chefs, foodies and critics with his fine culinary nous and technique. The Barcelona-born chef honed his craft with culinary positions in a number of Michelin starred restaurants in Spain and France. 

In particular, Alain spent a decade in the kitchens of the world-famous three Michelin starred elBulli, arguably the best restaurant in the world, before moving behind the scenes to elBullitaller, the restaurant’s food research laboratory. 

LaLuz, which means Light in Spanish, is the inspired creation of Grupo Tragaluz, for whom this is the first venture outside Spain - where they run a number of distinguished establishments.

Rosa Maria Esteva and Tomas Taruella, the mother and son team behind the group, are known for setting up original outlets that serve highly creative cuisines based on tradition, set in inspired and original spaces.

“LaLuz brings a unique look at fine dining and hospitality with a highly creative menu combined with an inviting ambience and distinctive surroundings,” said Pep Miro, Director of Operations of LaLuz. “While Dubai boasts a number of gastronomic highlights, we believe that we at LaLuz bring a new dimension in fine dining and entertainment in the international city of the Middle East.”

Keeping things shipshape at LaLuz are a team of highly-trained staff, who will work in shifts to provide seamless and impeccable service. Representing a major investment, the restaurant is set to write a new chapter in the Dubai gastronomic scene. The outlet is open for lunch and dinner and closes at 3 am.
