La Sirène, Avani Palm View’s homage to Lebanese coastal culture, opens in April. An urban lifestyle eatery and terrace that evokes the soul of Lebanon will transport diners to the ‘Pearl of the Middle East’ through an exciting new menu that includes specialities such as sea bass sababiyah, double-cooked octopus and tasty mezze. Lebanese street food favourites with a twist will also be on offer, ideal for quick al fresco bites with friends or a lunch with colleagues. Those with a sweet tooth will savour the knafeh and mafroukeh from the dessert menu. Stunning views stretch across Palm Jumeirah, Dubai Marina and Burj Al Arab, making it the perfect backdrop for a special occasion.
