Brandon's Table at Le Royal Meridien Abu Dhabi - Scaling new heights
As guests make their way through the parking area, they are surprised with something on a spoon - the call for trust is sounded again as guests are given Mock tuna tartar - "Open your mouth please" is followed by a waitress serving the guest - at the risk of sounding like a teenager, it is very cool. It also causes guests to think about what they traditionally call a dish or a course. Does a course have to be served on a plate? Must it be at a table? Why is this not a course? Exciting questions I am hopeful that people ask themselves. Moments like these are what high end dining is missing: Elements of surprise. Up is Down. Black is white. Sunrise is sunset.
We city folk do not have that luxury of the woods. We have to live life deeply every day, surrounded by glass and steel. Tonight was one of those nights where we connected with ourselves and more importantly, other people. Nowness, complete life in the moment, is a way to sum up this evening. Where do you find your nowness?
