Located on Jumeirah Beach Road, a stone's throw from the beach, 21 GRAMS is a highly anticipated urban Balkan bistro, evoking memories of a homeland's favourite recipes, the warmth and comfort of a family home and the smell of freshly baked pastries.
"Since I was seven years old, I've been drawn to the magic that food creation can bring," said Stasha Toncev, Chief Soul kitchen Officer of 21 GRAMS. "I have always loved hosting small gatherings for my friends to indulge in new dishes and recipes that I've created, which is what I'm looking forward to bringing to the UAE with 21 GRAMS."
A vibrant bistro space with floor to ceiling windows, 21 GRAMS offers a light and welcoming indoor dining area bathed in warm tones, with a pastry counter and seating for 30, as well as an intimate outdoor area, with stunning balcony views overlooking Umm Suqeim Park.
The extensive menu, carefully executed by a true Balkan Bedouin, Head Chef Uros, dishes up a fresh, authentic selection including a gypsy toast with kaymak & ajvar, grilled ćevapi with onions and red pepper, meat and cheese burek and traditional Balkan pies - as well as chocolate hazelnut baklava and other tempting sweets.
Officially opened in early January on the corner of the Park Regis Boutique Jumeirah, 21 GRAMS brings honest, wholesome soul food with authentic accents from the mountains, valleys and coasts of the Balkan region, all wrapped up with generous warmth and spirit.
Open daily from 7am to 11:30pm. For more information, please call +971 04 349 07 44, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
