Dubai’s LPM Restaurant & Bar (formerly known as La Petite Maison) has launched a brand-new terrace, inspired by the French Riviera.
The LPM Dubai terrace has had a revamp led by LPM director Bob Ramchard, with interiors from Sagrada and it comes ahead of LPM’s tenth anniversary later this year.
“The French Riviera exudes culture, lifestyle, relaxation,” said Ramchard. “We wanted our diners to step onto the terrace and be transported to the South of France, the new terrace has a timeless French and classic Mediterranean look and feel just like our restaurants.”
The new space aims to “transport guests to the stunning Côte d'Azur” and has Belle Époque-inspired shutters and an ornate wrought iron gate. There are also wall-mounted glass lanterns similar to those found in southern France as well as greenery and hanging flowers.
LPM restaurants typically have a pared-down backdrop reminiscent of the French Riviera: a light colour palette, white china, fine linens, marble. Art from 20th Century painters from the South the France and references and inspirations from ‘Belle Epoque’ villas on the Côte d'Azur abound: mosaics, fer forgé, shutters teamed with 19th-century gilt and harlequin mirrors and a centrepiece bronze sculpture.
Each restaurant has signature wall-mounted male and female pans created by Max Cartier. LPM restaurants have a classic welcome bar, typically marble or lava stone with pewter, or zinc and an open prep counter.
