The Maine Oyster Bar & Grill a foodie destination in the Marina
The Dubai Confidential team was recently invited to review The Maine Oyster Bar & Grill at DoubleTree by Hilton (JBR), that combines together an American brasserie and a European bistro. The Maine, whose stylish entrance is hidden in the parking, has a warm urban interior décor and attractive sheltered outdoor terrace.
The menu included lots of sharing plates and hearty dishes with a twist. Our lunch started with The Billionaire French Toast with seared Foie Gras (yes, it is a controversial dish!) 85 AED and a berry sauce, a tasty combination of sweet and savoury. The Lobster Roll (95 AED)– one of the signature dishes of the Maine – small rolled pieces of lobster in a brioche with lightly fried homemade potato crisps – was a very original and stellar combination that worked well together and conquered our taste buds.
For the main we opted for the Halibut with béarnaise sauce (150 AED) with crispy Brussels sprout as side dish (35 AED), that we thoroughly enjoyed.
Desert was a crème brulee – we advise you to share this one as the portion is quite substantial and a rhubarb crumble – the only letdown of the meal – that was to sweet for our taste and had a watery consistency (both 45 AED).
Although we visited it to during the day, The Maine is even better suited for dinner and drinks. The catchy music in the background and the long bar with an informal indoor and outdoor area are perfect for the evening.
Overall it was a great dining experience and the food and the setting won us over.
