Rüya, the award-winning restaurant concept from Dubai and one of this year’s most anticipated restaurant openings, opened its first London location in June.
Inspired by second generation restaurateur Umut Özkanca’s heritage, Rüya, meaning dream in Turkish, offers sophisticated, contemporary dishes to showcase the rich traditions of Anatolian and Turkish cuisine. With Chef Patron Colin Clague, formerly of Zuma and Caprice Holdings, at the helm, diners can experience a menu featuring an array of Anatolian classics with a contemporary twist. Highlights include 24 hour slow cooked short rib with Turkish chili BBQ glaze and spiced Konya chickpea puree and Two-cheese pide from the Black Sea with slow cooked egg. The menu will take guests on a journey of flavors from Anatolia. The bar menu will offer signature cocktails, such as the Black Sea made with Rye whiskey, Cognac, Vermouth, Raisin, Cinnamon and Bitters. Rüya will also boast a huge selection of Raki, the famed anise-scented national spirit of Turkey.
Located in the heart of Mayfair and designed by internationally renowned Conran & Partners, the restaurant includes: a chef’s table area adjacent to the open kitchen amid contemporary custom-designed Turkish tiling, a more formal dining room, and an intimate private dining room for 14 people and a lively bar area with a DJ.
“Rüya’s enticing concept fuses a vibrant restaurant and bar experience together with décor, menu and an ambiance taking inspiration from Anatolian roots. We have taken authentic traditions, which I retain a deep personal connection to, and interpreted modern details for the sophisticated London audience. We are excited to provide memorable experiences for our guests and welcome everyone to discover our fantastic concept in London.” - Umut Özkanca
