If you have a taste for seafood, one of the new Dubai restaurants you’ve got to try is Sea Fu, one of the new Dubai restaurants at Four Seasons at Jumeirah Beach. The menu consists of modern seafood dishes like black cod, blue prawn tartare, and lobster macaroni. There are also plenty of high-end dishes like the foie gras with abalone. Situated right on the beach, Sea Fu offers both indoor and outdoor dining. If you choose to dine outside, there’s a fabulous lounge with a fire pit where you can enjoy panoramic views of the Arabian Gulf.

Another new Dubai restaurant in Jumeirah is Per Te Restaurant. Not only is the food high-end, but the main highlight from the menu is gluten free pasta. Among the offerings are frutti di mare with fresh mussels, calamari, and prawns and pomodorini e basilica.

Michelin-starred chef Frederic Vardon heads up La Residence, a new French restaurant at Raffles. Diners will enjoy classic French cooking with a menu that follows France’s seasonality. There’s a variety of seafood dishes on the menu, which combines cosmopolitan ideas with classic techniques. La Residence has paid very close attention to detail with custom-made features in the décor, like the table top equipment which was designed specifically for the restaurant by Pierre Tachon.

Dubai is known for offering a wide array of cuisines, and Coya is the perfect addition to the city’s eclectic dining scene. Of all the new Dubai restaurants, this may be one of the more unusual because it combines the heritage of the ancient Incan civilization with today’s Latin American lifestyle and traditional Peruvian cooking. Among the menu offerings are corvine trufa, ensalada peruana, and ceviche de lubina clasico.
There’s also the fabulous Pisco Lounge, which will transport you back in time to Lima’s oldest bars.

And finally, we have celebrity chef Roberto Rella’s latest addition to Dubai’s restaurant scene. Tre is the chef’s third Italian restaurant in Dubai, and it spans three floors at the Radisson Royal Hotel. One floor holds the dining room and a pair of small bars, while the second holds a lounge with a DJ and the third is a smaller, more intimate lounge which feels a bit like a gentleman’s club.
