Iranian-American television chef and cookbook author Ariana Bundy’s debut restaurant, Ariana’s Persian Kitchen, will launch at Dubai’s The Royal Atlantis Resort and Residences in late 2019. She is on a mission to bring Persian cuisine to a wider audience.

Following the success of her ground-breaking book, Pomegranates and Roses: My Persian Family Recipes, she went on to write, produce and present the cookery and travel series, Ariana’s Persian Kitchen. The eight-part television show launched on NatGeo People, and has aired in over 40 countries.

The upcoming restaurant, with Ariana’s modern and refined take on this ancient and sophisticated cuisine, promises to be a compelling addition to the Dubai culinary scene.

A rare female-led celebrity establishment, Ariana’s Persian Kitchen is set to put Persian cuisine firmly on the map with a revolutionary and enticing menu and next-level hospitality.

Served family-style, Persian classics will be given Ariana’s refreshing modern twist in terms of textures, ingredients and presentation.

Guests can sample signature dishes such as Ariana’s Caspian-style filet kebab, rose-scented sea bass, a colourful array of new mazzeh dishes, and her take on classic Persian ice cream with saffron, pistachios and rose water.

Meals will be complemented by a range of specially created cordials and drinks, as well as traditional Persian tea and Baghlava.

The restaurant features a bar and a private dining room. At the heart of the restaurant is an show kitchen, featuring a massive charcoal grill and a fire-pit Tanoor, serving fresh breads.

Bundy said, “Ariana’s Persian Kitchen will bring to life the untold stories of Persian culture through plentiful and beautifully-presented dishes. Complex, yet comforting flavours, will work alongside an interplay of textures, spices and tastes, all served with charming and generous hospitality.”

Martin Chung, senior vice-president, global development, The Royal Atlantis Resort and Residences, said, “We have big expectations for Ariana’s Persian Kitchen, there is really nothing in the region that fuses a contemporary dining experience with the authenticity of the Persian cuisine.”

“Joining the likes of Gordon Ramsay, Nobu Matsuhisa, Heston Blumenthal, Giorgio Locatelli and José Andrés, Ariana Bundy is another iconic addition to the Atlantis family,” he added.

Bundy was first exposed to the food business by her restaurateur father, who owned innovative French dining establishments in pre-revolution Iran and later Beverly Hills.

After learning her craft at Le Cordon Bleu and Le Notre in Paris and training at Fauchon Patisserie, she became the head pastry chef for the Mondrian Hotel in Los Angeles, catering for the Oscars and Golden Globes as well as movie premieres.

Shortly after, Bundy published her first book, titled Sweet Alternative, featuring desserts using alternatives to dairy, gluten, or soy, inspired by her own food intolerances.

In 2012, she published Pomegranates and Roses: My Persian Family Recipes, which received a Gourmand Cookbook Award the same year, and was shortlisted as the best cookery book at the 2013 Writer's Guild Awards. In 2015, Ariana became the host of Ariana's Persian Kitchen.
