Defying easy categorisation, Fume is a modern, minimalist eatery that is undoubtedly much better in reality than it must have sounded as a concept – and that’s just the decor. The blend of concrete walls, Scandinavian furniture, 1950s Americana accessories and huge plate-glass windows overlooking the Marina somehow works, as does the eclectic menu of smoked and slow-cooked dishes, all designed for sharing, from around the world. According to Operations Manager Angelo Rosato, the goal is “food nostalgia”
It takes something special to make Dubai dwellers stray from the usual hangouts. Luckily, Qbara has ‘special’ in abundance. Located in Wafi, next to Raffles Hotel, the Arabic fusion restaurant dishes up serious wow-factor with moody lighting, striking decor, a spectacular wall (more on that later), and a creative choice of food. If you’re looking for a restaurant that will impress with both substance and style, look no further.
The 20 dinner guests were handpicked by Esquire and Momentum and invited to the Wafi-based restaurant, each bringing with them a personal watch with a story behind it. The guest list demonstrated a considerable depth of knowledge of the craft behind watchmaking and the appreciation for well-made timepieces.
Popular restaurant concept Fume will expand to a second home in Downtown Dubai.
The venue – which prides itself on serving wholesome comfort food – has proved a hit amongst Marina dwellers since opening at Pier 7 last year.
Now Fume will host a second location, set to open at the Manzil Downtown Dubai from mid-August.
Those lucky enough to score a reservation at the contemporary Lebanese restaurant can bookend their meal with the signature Milk & Honey dessert. On paper it’s a simplistic arrangement – Greek yoghurt and sumac panna cotta with a side of honey and saffron
The new location offers seating for over 200 diners, across two floors and a terrace with views of the Burj Khalifa.
Via Fume’s open plan kitchens, diners can see their food being prepared, which will feature Fume’s fusion of European and Asian flavours. The outlet is also known for its variety of cooking methods for meat and fish, which include smoking, pickling, preserving and braising.
The place hasnâ€™t changed in decades; crammed with blue-collar workers, western expatriates and Emiratis, the clientele rub shoulders seated at plastic chairs and tables that spill out into the street where they dip melt-in-the-mouth naan into pools of spicy curries.
Get out your hyphens. Qbara fuses an innovative east-west, neo-traditional, Arabo-Levantine-Persian-Ottoman mash-up menu in a bi-level, low-lit, Moorish-chic den of sultriness. Faster than a flying carpet, the kitchen can transport you to Yerevan via Aleppo (a sweet-salty hybrid of air-dried beef basterma with tangy peaches and halloumi cheese) and Marrakesh (a smoky synthesis of quail in grilled grape leaves with Moroccan spices) followed by stops in Istanbul (gelatinous red-fruit Turkish delight coated in
