ShortList Brunch Awards 2018: Nominees revealed

Following our hugely successful event in 2017, the ShortList Brunch Awards are back for another year.

On March 13, 2018 a host of venues will be crowned as winners in the second ShortList Brunch Awards at Cavalli Club Restaurant and Lounge.

Unbelievably, the competition across the numerous categories is even hotter this year than last. The suggestion then, is that the many restaurants, bars and lounges have upped their game in the past year, while a slew of new contenders have entered the fray and blown our panel away. So after much deliberation, countless hours sampling the wide range of cuisines and beverages on offer, we finally have a list of nominees.

But before that, we want you to vote for your favourite brunch in Dubai.

CLICK HERE TO VOTE.

Now that that’s out of the way, here’s the list of finalists are below…
