This has been one of the most talked-about new launches, and with celebs like footballer Didier Drogba and supermodels Karolína Kurková and Petra Němcová attending opening night, it’s definitely Dubai’s newest place to see and be seen.
A highlight of the menu is the Maine lobster roll with horseradish dressing, avocado, celery, butter lettuce and tomato on a homemade brioche roll. Keeping with the seafood theme, the shrimp and lobster spring rolls with lime, soy and ginger sambal are also a must.
The dishes are a real mix of cuisines that span the globe (as its namesake magazine does) with everything from Vietnamese pho to saffron risotto. There’s also a 15-strong selection of teas, which is ideal for a mid-afternoon break from shopping. If you’re not up for a sit-down meal, prop yourself up at the espresso bar and nibble on a sandwich, salad or some sushi. More info
