3 restaurants to visit in Dubai this week
The newest Rixos in the city is certainly packing in the new venues. The latest to come is internationally acclaimed steakhouse, STK, which is making its Middle Eastern debut. It’s designed to be a dinner-meets-party spot, which is keeping with many of the brands under the Solutions Leisure umbrella – Lock, Stock and Barrel, Q43 – although this has an even more chic, upmarket vibe with a distinct New York feel. On the menu are classic steakhouse options with various cuts of prime beef as well as burgers, oysters and raw bar.
