The Brooklyn Diner, operated by Shelly Fireman, is opening an all-Halal outpost in a Dubai hotel Feb. 15 with a menu that will include the oven roasted Dodger pot roast, according to the Insatiable Critic. Local Dubai cuisine will be featured as well, including Shish tawouk (marinated chicken kebabs), chelo kebab koobideh (charbroiled beef or lamb strips on rice) and a mild Thai green chicken coconut curry, which, “strangely enough… is extremely popular in Dubai,” Fireman said. The Brooklyn Diner currently has two New York City locations; one is at 212 West 57th Street, between Broadway and Seventh Avenue, and the other is at 155 West 43rd Street, between Broadway and Sixth Avenue. The Dubai site — officially connected to the Intercontinental Hotel, which permits alcohol in a mostly dry country — will resemble the location on West 57th, with neon, a maitre d’ in a tux and sneakers and Brooklyn photographs by WeeGee. Brooklyn Diner Dubai will have the same Ebbets Field mural, outsize dessert display and brass plaques with names of American celebrities and sport figures plus locals expected to become regulars, said Don Fitzgerald, producer of the Dubai project.
