Delicious brasserie-style food at Mina
" Mina is a lively and modern space where one can feast on delicious brasserie-style plates "

The first summer event for the Chaîne in Dubai took place at Mina Brasserie in the Four Seasons Hotel located in the Dubai International Financial Centre. Mina is a lively and modern space where one can feast on delicious brasserie-style plates crafted by award-winning Chef Michael Mina.

Upon arrival we were welcomed by a beautiful selection of canapés and Prosecco. The terrace location for the reception was packed with the 65 members and guests who joined the event.

Once we were seated for the dinner Chancelier Eleanor Brodie formally welcomed all guests and invited Christina Purba, Four Season’s Senior Marketing Director to give an opening speech. Then Chef Nicola Rossi and Kristina Milanovic introduced us to the menu and wine pairing. We were all excited to start the mouth-watering journey.
