A new dining destination at Shangri-La, a lively evening brunch and a Saturday ladies’ night at a top steakhouse in DIFC…

From wallet-friendly dinner deals perfect for pairs, to unique dining experiences you wouldn’t get anywhere else, we’re spoiled for choice when it comes to dining out in Dubai.

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.

From a new Japanese spot Downtown, a second serving of an evening brunch at a funky Asian hotspot, and a new ladies’ night at a sleek DIFC steakhouse, here are three restaurants to check out this weekend.

The brand new: ONI

ONI Japanese Restaurant, Lounge and Sake Bar, has officially opened its doors in the Shangri-La on Sheikh Zayed Road. The new restaurant, headed up by executive chef Mohammed Islam formerly of Atelier M, it’s a menu of street eats designed to be shared in a casual setting.

ONI, Shangri-La, Sheikh Zayed Road, daily 6pm to late. Tel: (04) 405 2333. More info on website

The evening brunch: Mr Miyagi’s

Mr Miyagi’s, the Asian hotspot in Media City, is adding a second serving of its lively ‘Wok and Roll’ brunch to it’s Friday brunch offerings, at the later time of 8pm to 11pm. It’s a three hour package of sharing Asian bites, with the option to upgrade to an extra hour of drinks for Dhs100 afterwards in the bar. Expect some live entertainment, too.

Mr Miyagi’s, Level 9, Media One Hotel, 3pm to 6pm and 8pm to 11pm, Dhs275 house, Dhs375 sparkling. Tel:(04) 420 7489. More info on website

The steakhouse with a new ladies’ night: Gaucho

Gaucho first opened its doors in the city 2011, which by Dubai standards means it’s a stalwart on the DIFC dining scene. Serving up cuts of meat with as much flair as the extravagant decor, Gaucho makes it clear from it’s extensive menu of prime steaks (as well as it’s ever-present hide prints and leathers) that this isn’t one for the veggies. And we’re ok with that. On Saturdays the steakhouse has just started a brand new ladies’ night. As well as offering three free drinks to the girls from 8pm to 11pm, there’s also 50 per cent off the bar food menu.

Gaucho, Gate Village 5, DIFC, Sun to Thurs 10am to 11.30pm, Fri and Sat 12pm to 11.30pm . Tel: (04) 422 7898. More info on website
