Armani/Hashi: Expectations not met.

Armani/Hashi: Expectations not met.

The F&B outlets at the Armani Hotel represent a number of venues I’ve been dying to go to for years, but have never actually visited (although I did go to Armani Prive once or twice circa 2010).  Thus, with an opportunity to attend brunch at […]

‘PLAY by Day’ Brunch: Delightful food and frustrating service.

‘PLAY by Day’ Brunch: Delightful food and frustrating service.

In a serious Dubai foodie faux pas, I had only previously visited Play as part of the Foodiva’s dine around (about this time last year).  During our visit, I was impressed by not only the food but also the design and overall atmosphere of the restaurant […]

Rüya: Not quite a Turkish delight…

There are a few venues in town which have a considerable amount of hype surrounding them.  Rüya (which apparently translates to ‘dream’ in Turkish) is definitely one of those restaurants — many a foodie has been and raved about their experience.  While Turkish cuisine is […]

El Sur: Enjoyable tapas brunch.

I didn’t particularly set out for a brunch this weekend, but when plans for dinner on Thursday fell through, brunch seemed like the best way to get out of the house.  As usual, I wanted a place that was in the Entertainer (buy one, get […]

Departures @ Dusty’s: Divine tunes.

Dusty’s has been on my radar since… Forever?  It was one of those ‘I’ll get there one day’ and this past Friday was finally that day! Deli by day. Wine bar by night and whole lot more in between. “Dusty’s” the restaurant, has been developed […]
