For an element of the unexpected twist with unique eats and warm service in a slick and exciting setting, you can’t beat Cle Dubai.
With its oversized auroral lights and shimmering black finishings, you’ll be forgiven for thinking you’ve jut landed on the set of Insterstellar.
It’s so refreshing to encounter such clued up, front of house staff who share a passion for good food and dining out experiences. The night starts out with a gentle buzz before turning into a spectacular floor show with Cirque du Soleil performances.
Like the crew of Interstellar’s Endurance, the chefs here are required to think bigger and go further in order to take their guests on a voyage into the unknown. It’s Middle Eastern food, but not as you know it as Michelin-starred chef Greg Malouf puts his own enticing spin onto contemporary Arabic dining. Think creamy burarrta salad with bitter red endives, sweet pomegranates and nutty dukkah; a sweet and savoury duck tart with the flakiest of pastries; a monkfish tagine that packs a flavoursome punch and a glorious dark chocolate tart sprinkled with hibiscus powder.
If you want to feel special this Valentine’s Day – and let’s face it, who doesn’t? – then Cle Dubai should top your list.
The innovative cuisine and informed service. Oh, and did we mention that all female diners receive a bottle of Chloe Love Story when you book the Valentine’s package?
