In a captivating move, the renowned Babel restaurant has relocated to a fresh destination. The new address is nestled within the bustling Dubai Mall’s Fashion Avenue. Previously situated at La Mer, this Lebanese culinary gem has returned. It was once shortlisted as one of Dubai’s finest Lebanese dining establishments in the year 2021.

Originating in Lebanon’s vibrant Dbayeh back in 2009, the restaurant’s journey has been marked by a fusion of Mediterranean classics with a delightful twist. Visitors can anticipate encountering the same delectable menu that graced its former beachside location in Jumeirah 1. The menu proudly displays an array ranging from mezze and grills to seafood. But fans might be disappointed as the fish market aura seen in its La Mer counterpart would be missing. So, instead, a dedicated fresh seafood display takes the spotlight.

The new locale welcomes guests with an open-style kitchen and generously sized indoor and outdoor spaces. It treats diners to captivating views of the renowned Dubai Fountain. Inside, the design palette showcases elegant sandstone walls. Delightful blends of Himalayan salt pink-toned, pigeon blue and aubergine purple furnishings adorn the commanding grand arches and seating areas. Modern halo-style light fixtures gracefully hang from above. The walls host an assortment of shelves adorned with an eclectic mix of books, vases, and charming knick-knacks like plants.
