The weekend is calling…

It’s almost the weekend so there’s two things on our mind. How early can we sneak out of the office later? And where are we going to go for brunch tomorrow? While we can’t help you on on the former, we definitely know a thing or two about Dubai brunches. We’ve lined up three of our favourites, which have had a brief hiatus and are now back and ready to welcome you.

Here’s three Dubai brunches back open for business.


Studio City’s Italian hangout Larte is back with a new and revamped version of its Friday brunch. Formerly a family affair, That’s Amore Brunch is now catered to the big kids, with a loud and lively Italian feast. Picture all the spritzer cocktails you could ever need, and dish options such as porcini risotto, calzone pizza, lasagne, grilled rib-eye and baked salmon. All for the bargain price of Dhs250 per person.

Larte, Studio One Hotel, Dubai Studio City, Fridays, 2pm to 5pm, Dhs250 house. Tel: (0)4 581 6870.
