Legends Friday Brunch
The venue and its brunch are well named. As the weather begins to cool, this is a definite must-visit, with its terrace, fantastic views over Dubai Creek and live jazz band. Diners can choose a dish from the special á la carte menu or ask the chef to prepare a selection of smaller sized dishes to try them all. We’d go for the latter every time.
