3 fresh new food spots to dine at this weekend
And they’re all brand new…
And if you’re looking for somewhere fresh to head to this weekend, we’ve rounded up three spots we reckon you won’t want to miss out on. And what’s more, they’re all brand new.
From a second serving of a seafood concept from Monte Carlo, to an authentic smokehouse and a balkan bistro that’s already got the town talking, here are three restaurants to check out this weekend.
The Monte Carlo export: Crazy Fish
The second serving of the brand, which first opened in Monte Carlo in 2017, serves up fresh seafood with a Mediterranean influence from its brand new home in Al Fattan Currency House. There’s a big focus on lightly seasoned dishes that let the quality produce do the talking. From the fresh fish display, guests can choose the freshest fish caught that very day that can be cooked to order. There’s also a lobster tank, where guests can select Mediterranean bleu lobsters, which can be cooked ‘Catalana’ style or grilled.
Crazy Fish Dubai, Al Fattan Currency House, DIFC, Sun to Weds 6pm to 1am, Thurs and Fri 6pm to 2am, Sat closed. Tel: (04) 352 9429. Facebook.com/CrazyFishDubai
The home grown smokehouse: The Blacksmith
Opening tonight, The Blacksmith Smokehouse takes its inspiration from the deep south of the USA. Brought to you by Blacksmith’s third-generation ‘Pitmaster’ and executive chef Orelle Young, expect to chow down on larger-than-life portions of authentic deep south dishes.
The Blacksmith, Wyndham Dubai Marina, Sat to Weds 5pm to 2am, Thurs and Fri 5pm to 3am . Tel: (04 407 8873). theblacksmithdubai.com
The Balkan bistro that’s already got people talking: 21 Grams
Located on Jumeirah Beach Road, right by the beach, 21 Grams is an urban Balkan bistro that’s already got people talking. The bistro comes with floor to ceiling windows, an intimate indoor dining space with seating for thirty and a small outdoor terrace overlooking Umm Suqeim park. The menu is overseen by Head Chef Uros, and dishes up the likes of gypsy toast with onions and red pepper, meat and cheese burek and traditional Balkan pies. For a sweet treat, don’t miss their chocolate hazelnut baklava.
21 Grams, Jumeirah Beach Road, near Umm Suqeim park, daily 7am to 11.30pm. Tel: (04) 349 0744. Facebook.com/21GramsDubai
