Tribeca Launches IT Paleo Menu

On the first of February, Tribeca Kitchen & Bar launched its Paleo Menu, a healthier addition to its already organic menu that promotes wholesome eating and good living.

Paleo diet is a way of eating…. like we did way back in the days, if a caveman couldn’t eat it neither should you. Cutting out all processed food so no pasta, cereal, candy etc and eating anything one could hunt or find – meat, fish, nuts, fruits, seeds and regional veggies. It is claimed to be one of the healthiest way of eating as individuals get all the nutrition they need to stay fit, strong and lean. Some of the common benefits of this diet include stable blood sugar, weight loss, reduced allergies, balanced energy and a healthy skin & teeth.

“At Tribeca Kitchen & Bar we want to cater to a wide range of lifestyles. We already have great options including vegan, vegetarian, low-carb and organic. The Paleo menu is an exciting addition and another way that Tribeca is responding to the needs of our guests and promoting a wholesome lifestyle. We all aim to live healthier and longer, and always looking our best! I am very excited about our new paleo dishes!” said Vesna Vrankovic, Creative Director of Tribeca.

With all the ingredients sourced locally from farmers and business within the UAE, Tribeca selects only the highest quality produce. Some of the signature dishes from the Paleo menu include Aubergine Lasagna, Zuchini Pasta with macadamia pesto sauce and the mouth-watering Coconut and Chia Banoffee Pie.

With a successful year of operation, Tribeca aims to continue being the local favourite eatery and bar for anyone who enjoys a plate of goodness, sassy music and a glass of their favourite drink. In addition to its special nights, Tribeca continues to make interesting additions to its existing menu such as this Paleo menu.

The latter is part of collaboration with Bokja Design Studio, renown for creating vibrant and handmade furniture & accessories using new and vintage textiles. ‘Trinity Chair’, which was designed by talented Rayxander exclusively for Vick Vanlian brand, brings the designers inspiration of the creation process, which is evident in the main spine of the chair, the shell springs and unfolds outwards according to a triangular geometric sequence. Geometry is commonly used in Vick Vanlian designs.

Vick Vanlian has built its name around the innovative methods it utilizes to create standout designs. A key component of the brand is alluding to four of the five senses wherever possible: touch, smell, sight and sound. The brand seeks to capture different moments of life and create emotional bonds through its projects that will awaken and provoke the senses. The designer achieves this by incorporating elements of vintage, futuristic and innovative aspects, pop culture and urban influence. Vanlian’s design philosophy is “Be bold! Design without Fear”.

In our almost two and a half decades of history, the show has clearly witnessed a shift in the way visitors want to participate and how exhibitors want to showcase their products.

More and more, the region’s residents are becoming maritime leisure enthusiasts. They seek more than just yachts and boats, but a 360 degree experience encompassing all aspects of a luxury lifestyle. The full scale marine sector offering targeting those that want to bring their own lifestyle to the water is an area that the industry must tap into, and this is where the Dubai International Boat Show shines.
