A new restaurant opens in La Mer, and we eye up two new menus at popular Dubai restaurants…

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 to head to this weekend, we’ve rounded up three spots we reckon you won’t want to miss out on. There’s a brand new lebanese, Marina stalwart The Scene serves up a top-notch veggie menu, and it’s all about superfoods at Ultra Brasserie.

Here are three new restaurants to dine at this weekend. 

The brand new: Babel

The award-winning Lebanese restaurant Babel has just opened its doors in Jumeirah’s beachfront destination La Mer. Serving up fine dining cuisine with a Mediterranean twist, the Lebanese born brand will serve up unconventional twists on traditional dishes from 12pm daily.
