With the launch of three new locations in the UAE, The Lighthouse Restaurant & Concept Store unveils impressive expansion plans
Adding to its existing Dubai Design District flagship outlet and on the back of strong momentum, The Lighthouse Restaurant & Concept Store reveals three new venues in the UAE. The first officially opened last week at Mall of the Emirates (MoE) with 115 covers. This is to be followed by Nakheel Mall on Palm Jumeirah and Yas Bay Waterfront in Abu Dhabi, both expected in Q4 this year.
The homegrown restaurant and concept store was created by founders and owner-operators Hashem Montasser and Hany Bassiouny in 2017 and it combines the best of two worlds; F&B and retail, under one roof.
Despite the crisis, The Lighthouse d3 has seen a successful performance since reopening in August 2020 across key financial metrics. These include 10 per cent and 35 per cent revenue increase YoY for Q4 2020 and Q1 2021, respectively; delivery revenue tripled in Q4 2020 – Q1 2021 YoY; F&B catering revenue more than doubled in Q4 2020 – Q1 2021 YoY; and e-commerce retail revenue increased by 800 per cent in Q4 2020 – Q1 2021 YoY.
The breakfast, lunch and dinner menus at MoE boast a fresh interpretation of Mediterranean-inspired soul food classics and pastries; in addition to new dishes exclusive to the location, such as the spelt and artichoke salad, grilled octopus with smoky hummus, short rib with parmesan risotto, slow-cooked lamb couscous, short rib burger, roasted cauliflower risotto, pear tatin, caramel thyme tart and double chocolate cake.
Additionally, both à la carte and set menus are available for delivery through The Lighthouse’s social channels and Deliveroo.
The concept store at MoE features retail merchandise that reflects The Lighthouse’s contemporary design aesthetic with a curated selection of hand-picked gifting items.
The minimalist interior features a dining area with banquette seating, an espresso bar, a lounge and an atrium terrace with an earthy colour palette. Meanwhile, the contemporary photography pieces on the walls are by renowned Egyptian artist, Maha Maamoun.
The Nakheel Mall (Palm Jumeirah) outlet opening in Q4 this year will boast 100 covers, whilst the Yas Bay Waterfront location in Abu Dhabi, a licensed location, will seat 145 covers.
