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.
The local hero: Carine
If you haven’t heard the name chef Izu Ani, you’d do well to remember it from now. The talented local chef is behind menus at La Serre and The Lighthouse, and his latest offering has just opened in Emirates Golf Club. Serving French Mediterranean dishes, Carine has been named after the chef’s wife. The restaurant is filled with all of Carine’s personal favourites from freshly baked breads inspired by the bakery she used to work at in Northern France, to her own homemade plum and apple jam.
carine, Emirates Golf Club, daily 7pm to 11pm. Tel: (04) 417 9999. facebook.com/Carine
The Lebanese export: Seven Sisters
Beirut bar and open air lounge Seven Sisters has just opened its doors on the first floor of the JW Marriott Marquis. Originating from Lebanon, it’s inspired by the elements in both its decor and through its ‘Mediterrasian’ menu. Expect a raw bar serving dishes like the fritto misto, sea bass ceviche and tuna tartare with miso, and heartier main courses of short rib yakitori or black cod with gnocchi. Resident DJs Megatronik, Patch and Margo will play a mix of vocal house, chill-out tunes and club classics daily from sunset.
Seven Sisters, First Floor, JW Marriott Marquis Hotel, Business Bay, daily 5pm to 3am. Tel: (056) 775 4777. facebook.com/sevensistersdubai
The new casual Italian eatery: Bellavista
Headed up by head chef Mourff Abiose, there’s a new casual Italian eatery to tuck into in Grosvenor House, Bellavista. Inside, the space is bright and cosy, but it’s the stunning outdoor terrace we’ve got our eye on (which inspired the name Bellavista). There’s a casual lunch menu of sandwiches, salads and pizza, with a more authentic Italian menu served from 7pm for the dinner service.
Bellavista, Tower One, Grosvenor House, Dubai Marina, daily 12pm to 11pm. Tel: (04) 317 6000. bellavista-dubai.com
