Jones the Grocer have opened another branch in Dubai, here in Jumeirah Beach Residence also known to most as JBR. We took the little people over early December (after a very chaotic tree lighting ceremony closeby….haha) – to review the venue over dinner.
Here’s what to expect in the newly opened Jones the Grocer JBR.
Where exactly is the new Jones in JBR?
Jones the Grocer is located in Delta Hotels by Marriott Jumeirah. For the neighbourhood locals – it is on Plaza level in Bahar.
If you are coming by car, get into the Bahar parking from Al Sufouh Road (currently King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud Street). The security guy will ask you to self-park in the designated parking slots for Delta Hotels.
How’s the place like?
Jones occupies a fairly large space in Delta. They have different areas – a walk in cheese room, a patisserie and deli, a made from scratch bakery, with different seatings areas – indoors and outdoors.
As it is situated in Delta Hotels – yes, it is licensed. Beers, wines, cocktails, the lot. Happy days.
Is the menu the same as the other Jones?
Chatting with the team, they did say that the menu is very much similar to the other Jones.
Pricing is slightly different though – note that this is the case with all Jones’ branches as it depends on location.
From our dinner there – I can happily say they have maintained the same quality as all their branches. If you like your meat – get the Australian striploin steak with their Melbourne cafe dry rub with Jones signature coffee. Husband loved his Jones signature Wagyu burger as well – served with smoked beef bacon and melted Cheddar. We shared a roasted pumpkin salad – this I highly recommend, with pine nuts, avocado and pomegranate – another one I am definitely going to attempt to recreate at home.
We ordered meals for the kids – mac n cheese, mini burger and spaghetti bolognaise. As usual they hardly touched the salad but loved their meals. Another thing to add – Jones serves fresh apple juice – which my kids were probably not so used to ha ha, mummy and daddy ended up having all of it.
Is it family friendly, like the other branches?
Very much so.
We like that the venue is separated into different areas so if you have noisy kids it’s not going to be so obvious haha. They have booths – a family favourite, outdoor seating too in case your kids want to play out in the plaza area.
There is also a kids corner with an activity wall which surprisingly kept my little ones busy for a week while.
Jones the Grocer in JBR is definitely going to be a favourite with the JBR and Marina Mums – particular families who are looking for good food with the little ones.
