3 restaurants to try in Dubai this week
Award-winning Italian restaurant Segreto now has a new executive head chef and a completely rejuvenated menu. Francesco Di Noia, whose CV includes Emporio Armani Café in Paris, has made a clear commitment to utilising fresh, seasonal produce. Look no further than the lasagna naopletana above, a whole-hearted beef lasagne, with rich ricotta cheese, tomato sauce and shredded short ribs, or the tagliata d’agnello, fagiolini all’ agro, a lamb loin with sweet and sour green beans, mint and black garlic. Sounds worthy of another visit.

The Victorian Restaurant and Café
The 18th century inspired restaurant has updated its menu, and we have to say it sounds rather (REALLY) tasty. Created by The Victorian’s Head Chef, Karl Kollmitzer, the new line-up aimed at representing the best of British cuisine includes a number of hearty meaty dishes like slow-cooked beef short rib with truffled potato cup and a mushroom and garlic crumb and rack of lamb served with ratatouille – delicious. There’s also a number of new items for vegetarians such as baby capsicums stuffed with pearl barley that’s served with a side of broccoli. Kollmitzer has also added a number of starters and a special dessert too (we’d tell you what it is but that would spoil the surprise).

One of the most popular seafood restaurants in Dubai, Fish Market at the Radisson Blu Hotel, will be closing its doors for a total renovation this summer. So, until May 24, Chef Sombun has created a menu based on the dishes that have kept guests flocking in over the years, such as lobster thermidor, scallops in Mongolian BBQ sauce and red snapper in red chilli sauce. Enjoy.
