First look: Jolie, Downtown Dubai’s new French restaurant

Massive New Year’s Eve party at Time Out Market Dubai

Discover Parisian-inspired dining at the soon-to-open The Dubai Edition

Pretty as a picture, Jolie invites you to enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner surrounded by high fashion photography.

A little taste of Paris in Downtown Dubai, Jolie is one of two brand new restaurants opening at The Dubai Edition next week. Check out our first look at the other eatery, the Italian restaurant Duomo.

Back to French restaurant Jolie, which opens on Monday, November 15. It’s a calm, open space, stylish and tasteful, with terrazzo floors and dark oak walls contrasting well.

The simple décor is brought to life with exclusive photography commissioned by Vogue photographer Landon Nordeman.

High fashion photos are stacked nearly side by side, a chic backdrop to some of the tables and Jolie’s bar area.

Jolie will offer a modern French menu inspired by Mediterranean coastal flavours and we’re told it will use seasonal and sustainably sourced ingredients.

The restaurant will open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and is likely to be a new brekkie hotspot for Downtown Dubai. La Serre have just got some new competition.

Jolie also features a marble-topped bar surrounded by slick bar stools and will focus on specially crafted mixed drinks to either start or end your night.
