Josette, a new best restaurant in Dubai for birthday DIFC’s ICD Brookfield Place, promises a glamorous Parisian experience. Josette is more than just fancy food; the concept is the brainchild of Luke Edward Hall, a London-based artist and interior designer. The talented creator based his concept on an imaginary character named Josette, who was inspired by the beautiful French actress Josette Day. As a result, its interiors are both elegant and eccentric, with the mischievous, chic, well-traveled personality of fictional character Josette woven into intricate design details. Expect remained classics like ratatouille, escargot, mule’s mariners, foe grass, and seafood platters on the menu. The signature Crêpe Josette, served in a special crêpe trolley with some wow-worthy table theatrics, is not to be missed. Along with the main restaurant, Petit Josette will serve as an inviting neighborhood hub, fusing the charm of a Parisian street café with the hustle and bustle of DIFC.
