Recently revamped: Toro Toro
After a month-long refurb, Toro Toro has just reopened its doors in Grosvenor House. The Pan-Latin spot now boasts an open kitchen, flashes of foliage, tribal Latin patterns, dark walls and warm leather furniture mish mashed with fur and fabric cushions. On the menu, expect signature favourites to remain with a selection of exciting new dishes added. And, fans of their popular Monday ladies’ night will be pleased to hear that that will be returning too.
Toro Toro, Grosvenor House, Dubai Marina, Sat to Weds 7pm to 1am, Thurs and Fri 7pm to 2am. Tel: (04) 317 6000. torotoro-dubai.com
Truffle menu: World Cut Steakhouse
The World Cut Steakhouse is celebrating ‘Truffle Month’ from November 7 to 31 with a limited edition set menu. Priced at Dhs385 per person, the menu starts with black truffle fritters, followed by a beef carpaccio or truffle mushroom soup. From there, there will be a palate cleanser and then a main course of two truffle-based options, followed by a ‘truffle dream’ dessert. One house beverage is also included in the package.
World Cut Steakhouse, Habtoor Palace, Al Habtoor City, until November 31, Dhs385. Tel: (04) 435 5577. Facebook.com/Worldcutsteakhouse
The secret menus: BB Social Dining
We’re big fans of BB Social Dining in DIFC, so much so that we struggle to pick our favourites from the menu. Which is why we’re pleased they’ve introduced the #BBSecretMenu dishes, where head chef Alex Stumpf will select and create specialist dishes for you that may or may not be on the menu. Examples include wasabi lobster, lamb kofta bao and sea bream ceviche.
BB Social Dining, Gate Village 8, DIFC, Sat to Weds 12pm to 12am, Thurs and Fri 12pm to 1am. Tel: (04) 407 4444. thisisbb.com
