Talented French Chef, Jean Imbert is bringing a taste of the Mediterranean seaside to The Lana with two new F&B concepts, Riviera, a modern venue inspired by Chef Jean’s heritage and travels from around the breath-taking Mediterranean coastline; and destination rooftop lounge, High Society – a luxury poolside lounging concept located on the highest level of The Lana.

The light-filled space, illuminated by the sun flowing through the windows, exudes a gentle warmth infused with golden hues. The botanical-inspired interiors, adorned in shades of blush, sage, yellow, and blue, create a harmonious atmosphere that transport guests to the French riviera, with every corner providing a private retreat, while the spacious outdoor terrace, stretching alongside the Dubai Creek, unveils breath-taking vistas of the skyline reflecting in the tranquil blue waters.

Open from 7 am, the venue offers indoor and Al Fresco dining with a terrace overlooking the water; serving a la carte breakfast, lunch, and dinner on a menu which showcases Jean Imbert’s creativity and genuine love for the culinary arts. Guests can begin their gastronomical journey with starters such as the Toasted Focaccia with Green Beans, Burrata and Pistacchio, Jacky’s Gazpacho topped with Mozzarella di Bufala, and Signature Tuna tartare made at your table, amongst many others.

A transportation to the waterside towns of France, main dishes such as the Ratatouille tart with parmesan sable, Chef Jean seabass in crust & Choron sauce, carabineros spaghetti, mild chilli, each dish curated by chef Jean is seeped with a story and personal memories; each bite carrying an explosion of flavour that is a staple in every one of his unique creations.

Veal’s Parmigiana from my brother or Ratatouille tart with parmesan sablé, evoke a sense of nostalgia, as each dish curated by chef Jean is seeped with a story and personal memories; each bite carrying an explosion of flavour that is a staple in every one of his unique creations.
