The "Dubai Brunch" at Traiteur
Brunch" is a (caloric, frequently champagne-fueled) tradition and one that you should try at least once, if you find yourself in Dubai on a Friday (the weekend here is Friday/Saturday). Every big hotel and restaurant puts on an epic spread, from Wagyu beef to omelettes and souffles to chocolate fountains, fondant, and sundae bars. Traiteur's brunch might not be as big as some, but the food is uniformly delicious and the views from the terrace overlooking the marina are stupdenous. The price for brunch may be steep, but look at it this way: you won't have to eat for a week afterwards.
