Looking to branch out from the traditional dining circuit and meet other die-hard food fans? Join What’s On’s new supper club. Last stop: Ninive

How pretty is this majlis at Ninive? 

Let’s face it, dinner is a lot more exciting when you don’t know what’s on the menu.

That’s exactly what we propose to diners at our exclusive What’s On The Menu nights. The latest edition of What’s On’s roving Supper Club on March 19 saw more than 30 readers soak up the atmosphere at Ninive – a stunning urban majlis outside Jumeirah Emirates Towers.

Not a bad location for a supper club, eh?

Supplying the Middle Eastern and North African fare was chef Gilles Bosquet, sharing a few of the restaurant’s best dishes, with a hidden twist.

Q) Secret ingredient in the carrot and pomegranate salad? 
A) Tahini!

Q) Secret ingredient in the sweet potato kibbeh? 
A) Foie Gras!

From veiled foie gras to hidden prunes, Ninive’s What’s On The Menu night became a wonderful evening of culinary adventure. People came, guessed ingredients, won prizes and made new friends.
