Bubbalicious win Best Brunch at the ShortList Brunch Awards 2017
On Monday March 27, ShortList honoured the very best in the brunch business. From the biggest all-day party brunches to the after-dark hangouts, the city’s premium all-you-can-eats were celebrated.
Taking place at The Ritz-Carlton JBR, the first ever ShortList Brunch Awards sponsored by New Era, Stance, Acqua Panna S. Pellegrino, MMI, Red Bull and Horeca saw Bubbalicious take home the biggest award of the night, Best Brunch. And that’s not all they won, The Westin’s famed feast also scooped the award for Best Friday Brunch.
The night’s other big winners included Lucky Voice Dubai, who nabbed the award for Best New Brunch, Warehouse’s Hive Brunch who took home the award for Best Party Brunch and Sofitel JBR's Le Grand Brunch who took the ShortList Reader’s Choice Award.
To help celebrate the very best brunches in Dubai, over 300 guests, including F&B heavyweights and die-hard brunch lovers, were treated to an outdoor feast that featured everything from kebabs and skewers and mouthwatering desserts (nothing like celebrating a brunch with a brunch).
And, while only the winners walked away with the prestigious ShortList plate, two brunches in 11 of the 14 categories were commended for their excellent service and incredible feasts.
