3 restaurants to visit in Dubai this week
Café Artois by Bridgewater Tavern
Opening its doors today, Sunday, October 1, this waterside al fresco dining venue is the perfect for those looking to unwind over some freshly brewed coffee whilst admiring the stunning views of the Dubai Canal. Aside from being family-friendly, the al fresco venue will also serve up a number of barbecue delights – think beef, chicken and or seafood cooked to perfection over the charcoal grill. There’s also burgers, salads and light bites (the slow braised beef brisket nuggets – sound delicious) for those feeling peckish.
When: 4pm-2am, Sunday to Thursday and 12pm-2am, Friday to Saturday
Where: Bridgewater Tavern, JW Marriott Marquis Hotel Dubai, Business Bay
