Emirati chef and restaurateur, Faisal Naser, has launched his second UAE venue. LENTO Dubai follows in the successful footsteps of LENTO Abu Dhabi, a fast-food concept that has garnered a cult following since opening in 2020. The Dubai restaurant is an evolution of Naser’s culinary curiosity, featuring his iconic artisanal smashed burgers and fried chicken, but also globally inspired dishes that will be showcased as limited-edition specials.
Meaning ‘slow’ in Spanish, LENTO represents how Naser likes to take his time when in the kitchen.
The 30-cover restaurant showcases a minimalist-industrial look. The monochromatic grey palette is complemented by plush tan leather, repurposed wood, and wild foliage. Standout elements of the sleek interior include the KAWS inspired sculpture situated at the DJ booth and hip-hop vinyl records displayed on the wall.
