11 Woodfire has been open for less than two weeks…

We can always count on HH Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, to let us know where the best new restaurants are. This time, our Crown Prince has been to visit 11 Woodfire, which opened its doors on January 1, 2022.

The open-fire restaurant has quickly caught the attention of Dubai’s foodie crowd, as it’s headed up by acclaimed chef and restauranteur, Akmal Anuar. Sheikh Hamdan popped by to check out the new space, which thanked the Crown Prince for his visit on it’s Instagram page.

“Thank you for visiting us HH @faz3 it was our honour and pleasure to serve you,” the post said.
