The chefs have been tasked with ‘putting Dubai on a plate’…

One of Dubai’s many compelling factors, is its thriving food scene. Many of its homegrown concepts deliver unique and forward-thinking concepts which is what makes this emirate such an exciting place to dine.

EAT DXB, a not-for-profit initiative founded by Bull & Roo owner Tom Arnel and mystery restaurant reviewer FoodSheikh, is launching a series of events where the food community of Dubai can meet, exchange ideas and discuss the industry.

The first event, taking place on Sunday June 16, is called Eat the City. It’s a collaborative dinner where guests can enjoy a one-off menu created by top Dubai chefs: Former Zuma chef Reif Othman, Australian chef Greg Malouf, Ruya’s Liz Stevenson, cooking show host Mohammad Orfali, one half of Tom & Serg Tom Arnel and What’s On Award winners Nick & Scott.
