Sick of the Dubai summer heat? Head down to Vilamore restaurant at the Emerald Palace this weekend. Every Friday, the Mediterranean-themed party spot holds a "barefoot luxury lunch" inspired by the Balearic islands, while the menu holds influences from all along the Med, from the French Riviera to Italy and beyond.
The four-course brunch kicks things off with their 'antipasti room' where there is a selection of cured meats, veggie dishes and cheese, for the second course, there are freshly shucked oysters and mains including lemon risotto and sirloin. For dessert, there's a range of tasty dishes including pannacotta and orange almond cake.
Our tip? Stick around post-brunch to soak up the panoramic sunset views overlooking Dubai Marina and the Burj Al Arab.
Details: Barefoot Lunch at Villamore: weekly, Friday from 1.30pm to 4.30 pm. AED 375 non-alcoholic AED 475 house beverage. For Reservations: firstname.lastname@example.org
