Say hello to Lowe Dubai. A sassy little contemporary dining gem at Koa Canvas (next to private members club Nasab and close by to The Farm, Al Barari). Culinary duo Jesse Blake and Kate Christou are at the helm of this brilliant concept and bring with them a passion for sustainable (where possible), uncomplicated food and a wealth of combined experience working in some of Australia’s finest restaurants.
Lowe is a dining all day neighbourhood restaurant. A restaurant that has a story, some purpose, and character behind it. Headed up by New Zealand and Australian chefs Jesse Blake and Kate Christou, and real estate developer Mohammed Zaal, who believes his communities should contribute to the soul of a dynamic new Dubai.
Lowe means a warm light, especially one produced by fire and the menu showcases seasonal produce cooked naturally by fire.
Jesse Blake, 30, and Kate Christou, 32, are the chef team at Lowe, a cutting-edge eatery that just opened at KOA Canvas, the stylish residential complex and work hub near Al Barari. Kiwi Jesse and Greek/Australian Kate met while working in Melbourne restaurant Cumulus Inc. six years ago and have brought their kitchen synergy to this new homegrown concept. EDGAR met the kitchen duo.
