Stay and dine Downtown, a new dish at a fancy french restaurant and a brand new brunch in Business Bay…

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. This week, there’s a top stay and dine offer at the recently revamped Okku, a highly-recommended dish by Bagatelle’s executive chef and a brand new brunch at Business Bay’s PizzaExpress Live.

Here are three new restaurants to dine at this weekend. 

Stay and dine: Okku

Book in for a staycation at The H Hotel on Sheikh Zayed Road this summer, and you’ll get a Dhs600 voucher for two to spend at upscale Japanese restaurant, Okku. Midweek rates start from Dhs450 and Dhs550 from weekends, which basically means free food over the value of your staycation rate. It’s redeemable on multiple nights stay too, with a new voucher being issued every night. Because let’s be honest – you could never tire of Okku’s food

Okku, H Hotel, Sheikh Zayed Road, Downtown Dubai, rates from Dhs450 excluding fees and taxes, with a Dhs600 voucher to spend at Okku. Tel: (04) 501 8888.

New dish: Bistrot Bagatelle

Bistrot Bagatelle’s culinary mastermind Timothy Newton has introduced a brand new dish to the fine-dining French restaurant’s ever-evolving menu, and we’re already eyeing it up. The pan-seared Tenderloin (Dhs280) is cooked pink in the centre and paired with bone marrow, charred onion puree, and topped with a borderlaise sauce.

Bistrot Bagatelle, Fairmont Dubai, Sheikh Zayed road, 8pm to late, daily. Tel: (04) 354 5035.

Brand new brunch: PizzaExpress Live

Fans of Jazz PizzaExpress’ lively Friday brunch, we’ve got good news for you: the Downtown sister, PizzaExpress Live are launching their own (slightly more upscale) version this week. The four-hour package is priced at Dhs299 and includes sharing starters, an array of main courses on top of the usual pizza and pasta (the short ribs have got our attention) and dessert. It’s served up alongside a DJ, live music and magician.

PizzaExpress Live, Doubletree by Hilton Bay Square, 1pm to 5pm, Fridays. Dhs199 soft, Dhs299 house. Tel: (04) 566 5722.
