Bord Eau will resume its finessed French dining from October 20…

Even before the recent announcement that Abu Dhabi is now a Michelin Guide city (we’re just waiting for November to hear who’s been honoured), the city’s culinary credentials really seemed to have shifted up a few gears in the last year.

We’ve seen some spectacular new additions to the capital’s Encyclopedia Gastronomica — particularly on Yas Island, Saadiyat, and the Corniche. But something we’re incredibly excited for this month is less of a ‘something new’ and a bit more of a ‘something is back, and looking in better shape than ever’.

Bord Eau, Shangri-La Qaryat Al Beri, Abu Dhabi’s fine French dining restaurant is back — relaunching with a very special guest, the two Michelin Star awarded Chef Sylvain Sendra.

He’s taking some well-earned annual leave from his famous Parisian eatery, La Fleur De Pave to put together a six-course gourmand extravaganza that will be available to sample at Bord Eau from Thursday, October 20 to Sunday, October 23 as part of the Shangri-La’s coveted Culinary Master Series.
