It’s that time of the week again – time to make your brunch plans for this weekend.
As always, EW has got you covered with some great brunch suggestions, which hopefully might help you find some new favourites in your mix or help you rediscover old favourites that are just only reopening.
Of course, be mindful of the precautionary COVID-19 measures in place including social distancing, limits to how many people you can have on your table and all buffets are still suspended, so it’s table service all the way.
With that, here are five brunches to try out this weekend in Dubai.
Social Company, Zabeel House
End your week on a high note with an evening brunch at the Social Company in Zabeel House by Jumeirah, The Greens. From 7.30pm to 10.30pm tuck into classic dishes like mushroom risotto, slow-roasted chicken and grilled salmon, along with free-flowing house beverages.
