Renowned Nigerian-born chef Izu Ani, celebrated for his culinary prowess at La Petite Maison and La Serre Bistro & Boulangerie in Dubai, is gearing up to unveil his latest venture – Maison La Plage. Nestled on the pristine shores of Palm Jumeirah, this beach club promises to transport visitors to the sun-kissed landscapes of the South of France, offering not only a scenic retreat but also a delectable taste of Mediterranean cuisine.

The area boasts a diverse array of culinary hotspots, with Eva Beach House, SĀN Beach, and PLAYA Dubai already captivating the discerning palates of Dubai’s residents and visitors.

Chef Izu Ani’s culinary journey reflects his passion for food, culture, and language. Having collaborated with culinary luminaries like Philip Howard, Jacques Chibois, and Pierre Gagnaire, Ani has honed his craft, infusing his creations with a blend of expertise and cultural richness. Departing from Emaar Hospitality’s La Serre Bistro & Boulangerie in 2016 marked a new chapter, leading to the establishment of successful ventures such as Izu Brasserie, Izu Bakery, Carine, Gaia, and Fika.

A Fusion of Talents: Chef Izu Ani and Evgeny Kuzin

Maison La Plage is the product of a collaboration between Chef Izu Ani and Evgeny Kuzin, the visionary founder and managing partner of Fundamental Hospitality. The Dubai-based company, renowned for operating various F&B outlets in the region, is excited about bringing this unique concept to life. Kuzin envisions Maison La Plage as a significant addition to Palm Jumeirah’s vibrant dining and entertainment landscape, promising a distinctive experience for guests.

Scheduled to open its doors later this year, Maison La Plage joins the ranks of Dubai’s expanding list of beach clubs. With anticipated openings like White Beach, Nikki Beach, and Cove Beach, the city is poised to become a haven for beachfront enthusiasts.
