3 restaurants to visit in Dubai this week
Saturday Social Roast Marina Social
This place is celebrating its second birthday almost the exactly the same day as ShortList, which is why we’re happy to give its latest offering a bit of a plug. We’re twins, practically. It helps that Marina Social has something worth plugging, of course, and nothing gets us as excited as a decent roast, and they’re new offering serves up a choice of roast sirloin with Yorkshire pudding, roast picalou chicken, BBQ lamb. Saturdays 12pm-3pm and 7pm-12am, AED150 for two courses and AED195 for three. Lovely.
When: 12pm-3pm and 7pm-12am, Saturdays
Where: InterContinental Dubai Marina
Price: From AED150

Linner at CucinA
Linner, a concept born in New York, has come to Dubai and offers a very sociable (and perhaps more reasonable) way to spend a Friday. Available between 3.30pm-7pm, you can sit with friends until well after sunset with Italian classics such as beef carpaccio, chicken Milanese, baked seabass and risotto porcini. Like something? Simply re-order again and again.
When: 3.30pm-7pm, Fridays
Where: Courtyard by Marriott Dubai Green Community

We’ve long talked about how much we admire Rüya and its Executive Chef Colin Clague, and now it seems as though the mastermind behind the venue’s moreish Anatolian dishes is set to receive an award for his mouthwatering creations. Warsaw’s Best Food Award has shortlisted the talented chef in its Top 300 Selection. If you haven’t been to Rüya yet, you should. No, really you should, the venue’s menu boasts everything from classic mezzes to pides to mouthwatering kebabs while its Marina location makes it an ideal venue for a romantic date night. With great food, seamless service and stunning views, it seems like Rüya really has all the necessary ingredients for ever-lasting success.
When: Best Food Award – Wednesday, October 25
Where: Grosvenor House Al Sufouh Road, Dubai Marina
