Dubai’s incessantly developing landscape boasts of new hotels, restaurants, clubs and residential properties on a monthly and at times, even weekly basis. The real pleasure of such never-ending change is that there are always new restaurants to visit and gastronomical adventures to try. The following are the top five new restaurants in Dubai.
1 The Ivy Restaurant
The renowned London restaurant The Ivy makes its way to Dubai with an opening planned soon in the luxurious Emirates Towers. The restaurant will serve lunch and dinner with brasserie-style menu alongside Ivy specialties such as the world-famous Shepard's Pie and the Scandinavian iced-berries with hot white chocolate sauce. With 172 covers including up to 16 guests in a private dining room the restaurant is suited to all occasions; indulge in a delicious evening meal, power lunch or after-work drink at the bar.
The world's tallest restaurant has recently opened in a hardly surprising location: The Burj Khalifa, otherwise known as the world's tallest building. Located on the 122nd floor of this now towering Dubai moment, At.mosphere is more about food than about the outrageous views which can be equally enjoyed. Head Chef Dwayne Cheer is responsible for designing the menu which is created according to the seasons. With a concentration on sustainable seafood, At.mosphere also offers a variety of meat such as the Rangers Valley tenderloin from Australia. Reached by its own private elevator enjoy a gastronomical world which will enliven the senses and feast the eye. Open for lunch, dinner or tea.
3 Stay by Yannick Alléno
Three-star Michelin chef Yannick Alléno is the chef of Stay, the signature restaurant at the recently opened One & Only Hotel on the Palm Jumeirah. Boasting an atmosphere of luscious and sophisticated yet inviting decor, guests can comfortably converse amidst elegantly set-up tables catered to by excellent service. The cuisine is simple, elegantly devised, and great tasting.
