On weekdays, guests can enjoy light Peruvian bites as part of the business lunch for just Dhs49 per person while weekends turn into one big fiesta with the Saturday brunch from 1pm to 4pm.

Le Petit Beefbar

Beefbar Dubai is going back to its roots with a new concept, Le Petit Beefbar now open in DIFC. Though the atmosphere and dress code is more relaxed than its sister restaurant in Jumeirah Al Naseem, guests can still enjoy the all-time favourite dishes such as the signature bao buns and steak frites, and sharing style street food. On top of this, guests will be able to enjoy Le Petit Beefbar’s breakfast menu from 8am, as well as weekday business lunch from 11.30am.

Formerly found in Grosvenor House, Rüya is making a welcome return to Dubai in opening at The St. Regis Dubai, The Palm on Tuesday, January 10. Lacing traditional Anatolian cuisine with modern nuances, guests can expect sharing-style dishes such as as isli patlican (aubergine and walnut puree, crispy coated aubergine chips) , levrek (thinly sliced raw seabass, mustard, apple, and shaved radish), courgette dolma (wild mushroom ragout, fennel, and oregano) and whole grilled seabream with spiced herb rub, lemon dressing and havuc salatasi.  The space, which adds to the culinary array at The St Regis Dubai, promises to be bold and bright, with an open kitchen the star of the show.

Like the ever-popular London restaurant, Sumosan Dubai will also be home to JBar, an indoor terrace that will serve as the perfect space for a private soirée. Menu highlights? There are aplenty…crispy sushi rice pizza with salmon (Dhs75), yellowtail with truffle yuzu (Dhs120), 24-hour miso marinated black cod (Dhs220), and the melt in your mouth Japanese milk bread sando with Wagyu (Dhs270).
