Bentley Motors created the UAE’s highest fine-dining restaurant on the summit of the Emirates’ tallest mountain, Jebel Jais, in Ras Al Khaimah.
The ‘Peak of Luxury’ is open for just seven days and will serve 150 diners a specially designed menu of classic British dishes created by renowned chef, Colin Clague.
The restaurant has been constructed to celebrate the Middle East launch of the eagerly anticipated Bentley Bentayga V8 and Continental GT, and to demonstrate the sheer levels of bespoke luxury Bentley delivers through truly extraordinary experiences.
Located on the summit of Jebel Jais, 1,934 metres above sea level, Bentley’s luxury dining room has been styled in keeping with a traditional Arabic tent. Stepping inside the tent, guests are transported to a five-star luxury restaurant with hand-picked contemporary furniture, sumptuous materials and spectacular panoramic views across the mountain top.
British chef, Colin Clague – who has worked in some of the region’s leading restaurants including the Burj Al Arab, Ruya and Zuma – has curated a bespoke five-course menu which takes inspiration from the luxury and performance traditions of Bentley Motors and its illustrious history in grand touring. Using the finest local produce, Colin Clague has individually designed each classic British dish with a Middle Eastern twist for the special occasion.
Stephen Reynolds, regional director for Bentley Middle East, Africa and India said: “We deliver extraordinary experiences every day, whether it’s a visit to one of our showrooms, a test drive in one of our superb cars or the Bentley ownership experience. We are dedicated to pushing the boundaries of luxury and making memories which will last a lifetime. The Peak of Luxury is a true demonstration of the lengths we will go to to bring the values of the Bentley lifestyle to life and offer an extraordinary experience our customers won’t find with any other car brand.”
Colin Clague, executive chef at Ruya, said: “Working with Bentley – which is a British icon – on a such an innovative project has been a very unique experience. Over the course of my career I’ve worked in many kitchens in many countries across the globe, but I’ve never served dinner in a completely bespoke restaurant on the highest mountain in the UAE. It’s certainly a moment I will never forget.” More
