- The British inspired eatery located at Atlantis, The Palm, offers a decadent twist on a classic dish
In honour of Wellington Week, Gordon Ramsay’s Bread Street Kitchen and Bar Dubai will be adding a twist to Gordon’s signature dish, with a special Lobster Wellington, available from 12th to 18th June, for AED 260 for one person or AED 495 for two to share.
All of Gordon Ramsay’s restaurants are taking part in this week-long celebration with their own special take on the British classic, with Bread Street Kitchen & Bar Dubai opting for a luxury Lobster Wellington. This mouthwatering dish will be served with a healthy dose of Thermidor sauce, accompanied with mushrooms and flavourful samphire. Additionally, the dish will be available alongside Bread Street Kitchen’s traditional Beef Wellington as a ‘Surf and Turf’ option for diners looking to truly indulge for AED 495 to share.
Last year’s Wellington Week saw Wellington appreciation on a global scale, with the likes of Heddon Street Kitchen creating a molten chocolate Wellington, Maze offered a creative Japanese Wagyu beef cushioned in a soft bun and Union Street Kitchen made it an Italian affair with Piedemontese Fassone Beef Wellington sourced from the north-western regions of Italy.
Bread Street Kitchen & Bar is Gordon Ramsay’s fourth outpost of the popular London Eatery and his biggest and busiest restaurant globally. The restaurant offers a high quality, yet informal dining experience with a British, European influenced menu.
5 things you didn’t know about Beef Wellington….
- Beef Wellington is a preparation of filet steak coated with pâté (often pâté de foie gras) and duxelles, which is then wrapped in puff pastry and baked.
- Some recipes include wrapping the coated meat in a crêpe to retain the moisture and prevent it from making the pastry soggy.
- There are many arguments to the origin of Beef Wellington and despite popular belief this dish has nothing to do with the Duke of Wellington. However, to this day many believe the dish was created to commemorate his victory at the Battle of Waterloo or named because of its resemblance to his beloved Wellington boots
- It is thought the origins of the dish most likely resonate from the French specialty, filet de bœuf en croute
- The Kennedys and Nixon adored a bit of welly so much that a recipe was featured in 1968’s The White House Cookbook.
