Good Vibes Only
The original Miss Lily's opened in 2011 in NYC's hip Soho neighborhood by hospitality titans Paul Salmon (owner of Jamaica's award-winning Rockhouse Hotel) and brothers Binn and Genc Jakupi (who respectively worked at Manhattan's famous Bungalow 8 and The Box nightclubs). Rounding out the powerhouse team is designer Serge Becker, who has put his stamp on an array of trendy international restaurants including La Esquina and La Bodegra Negra. This legendary collaboration gave birth to a creative cocktail of gastronomy, aesthetics and music to provide guests with a unique dining experience that has taken New Yorkers by storm - an experience which we are thrilled to be bringing to Dubai!
Initially running as an exclusive pop-up at SOLE DXB in November 2015, and almost identical to its NYC counterpart, Miss Lily's Dubai will be a new and exciting addition to the city's thriving restaurant and nightlife scenes. Miss Lily's Dubai will draw on the culinary diversity of the Caribbean by producing dishes that reflect the spectrum of influences in Jamaican cuisine
The à la carte menu will exhibit Jamaican flair and flavors, including dishes such as Grilled Mackerel and Spicy Escovitch Tacos; Jerk Chicken served with Miss Lily's own all-natural Jerk Sauce not to mention a classic Jamaican Curried Goat made with Scotch bonnet peppers and fiery jerk spices - just like mama used to make it! The dessert menu will include Miss Lily's famous Banana Cream Pudding and Dark & Stormy Rum Cake - one taste of either of these and guests will feel like they have been transported to the tropics.
Central to our philosophy is the idea of sincere ‘good vibes’ and this will be reflected in every aspect of our delivery. From the warm welcome by our staff, to the laid back tunes setting the perfect mood, guests will be able to unwind and enjoy a taste of the Caribbean as though they were at their home away from home - and nothing says home like soul food!
We look forward to welcoming you home, at Sole DXB this November for a limited time and more permanently in early 2016 at Miss Lily’s and Melvin’s Juice Box, Dubai outposts.
