Bleu Blanc Oysters & Grill

Dubai, United Arab Emirates

Designers: WA International

Designed by WA International, Bleu Blanc is a French farmhouse inspired restaurant in the Renaissance Downtown Hotel in Business Bay. Khansaheb Interiors did the fitout and Emirates Innovation Engineering Consultants were in charge of the project management.

Large blue double doors lead you into a whitewashed interior with timber finishes on the furniture and ceiling. Floor-to-ceiling windows, mosaic tiling, rustic wooden floors and a wood-fired grill, which acts as a showpiece, fill the elegant space, that spills onto a terrace overlooking the Dubai Canal.

Low lighting gives the restaurant a chic yet warm feel, with candlelit tables, comfy chairs and cushions in shades of blue and white, matching the furnishings to the name. A clever curtain of wooden spoons segregates the private dining area, and an open plan kitchen allows diners to watch the chefs at work.
