It’s no secret that Dubai’s Jumeirah Lake Towers neighborhood is quickly filling up with trendy little culinary gems. The latest spot to join the ranks is the recently opened Cocktail Kitchen, an elegant eatery tucked away in Cluster P. Founded by veterans of the hospitality industry, John Gillespie and Giorgio Vallesi, Cocktail Kitchen reflects the intersection of delicious beverages and delicious food. Perfect for your next power lunch, the restaurant also specifically caters to the body-conscious with a healthy selection of lunchtime options.
Begin with zucchini and watermelon minestrone (AED 35/SAR 36) or citrus and seafood salad (AED 45/SAR 46) before moving on to a main of fresh fish in a bag (AED 55/SAR 56) or an open-faced sandwich of chicken with roasted peppers and black olives (AED 45/SAR 46). There’s also a full artisanal mocktail menu, including unique, specially sourced ingredients that make up eclectic concoctions such as the ‘Beet’le Juice’, featuring organic beetroot juice, blueberry, violet mustard, lemon, and anise, as well as the ‘Batid’a Batid’o’, with a combination of figs, Greek yogurt, vanilla, rooibos tea, and fresh sugar cane. Meanwhile, the ‘Bee’s Knees’ will provide you with a healthy dose of bee pollen, orange marmalade, chamomile tea, orange blossom, and Darjeeling tea. Top any of this gently-priced cuisine with a dessert of fresh fruit and mint and you have the perfect guilt-free lunch.
