A second serving of the popular brasserie will open in Dubai Studio City…

The Maine is one of the city’s (and our) favourite hangouts for top seafood, lively ladies’ nights and a brilliant Friday brunch. So we’re excited to learn that a second serving is opening soon in Dubai’s Studio City.

The venue took to Instagram to share the news, promising that its second venue would be more ‘like a cousin than an exact twin’ of the existing JBR restaurant.

Although we’re not too sure what the differences will be, rather than adopting the name, The Maine Oyster Bar & Grill like the JBR original, the new restaurant will be called The Maine Street Eatery.

“I’ve always had somewhat of a grander vision for The Maine” explains the restaurant’s founder, Joey Ghazal in the clip. “The Maine in Studio City is our opportunity to give the residents of that area more of a casual eatery,” he adds.

The new brasserie will open in Studio One, the new hotel by the same people behind Media City’s Media One Hotel.

As well as housing The Maine Street Eatery, Studio One will be home to a brand new Irish Village. The stalwart Garhoud pub will also open in the coming months.

We can’t wait to see inside!
