Monte Carlo seafood restaurant Crazy Fish is coming to Al Fattan Currency House in DIFC this November…
Only yesterday we reported on three DIFC restaurants that have all recently closed down. But it’s not all bad news for foodie fans in the financial centre, as we can now reveal that Crazy Fish is going to open soon in DIFC’s Al Fattan Currency House in November.
Crazy Fish will be the second serving of the seafood restaurant (with the first in Monte Carlo). It’s a quick expansion for the brand, created by F1 billionaire Flavio Briatore, that only opened in Monte Carlo in May.
It will be in the same building as Beefbar, the Monaco-born concept that we announced last month. Beefbar is also slated to open in November, and it’s, as the name suggests, all about meat.
Both concepts will take over the spot once occupied by Greg Malouf’s Cle in Al Fattan Currency House.
Interestingly, Crazy Fish will now occupy the location that was originally meant for Le Specialita. The Italian concept, also by Flavio Briatore, is now set to become a permanent fixture at Billionaire Mansion, another of Briatore’s venues. La Specialista will now be set up on the outdoor terrace that’s currently a shisha lounge at the club.
We’re yet to receive much information about Dubai’s Crazy Fish, but we’re expecting big things. The website for the Monte Carlo restaurant advertises that they offer ‘the best quality fresh fish & seafood’, using cooking techniques that are simple and they say the menu is characterised by the quality of the catch.
Menu highlights of the restaurant/lounge/terrace include a caviar section, catch of the day and the ‘Crazy Fish Catalana’, a chef’s selection of cooked starters.
