Fan of oysters? Well there’s only one place to be and that’s Seafood Kitchen at The Pointe, Palm Jumeirah. The seafood eatery turns one, and to celebrate they are offering Dibba Bay Oysters for just Dhs5 each.

One of our favourite Italian restaurants in Dubai has a very special three-course limited-edition Italian Extravaganza menu for both lunch and dinner. Segreto, found in Souk Madinat Jumeirah, has put together a menu of some of the most celebrated dishes such as Burrata con pomodori misti (burrata cheese with heirloom tomato, balsamic vinegar), Sottile di polpo, patate dolci, crumble di olive (octopus carpaccio, sweet potato and olives crumble), Risotto al funghi porcini (carnaroli risotto with porcini mushroom), Tagliata di manzo, rucola e grana (beef striploin, rocket, walnut and parmesan), and Tortino caldo di cioccolato (chocolate fondant with vanilla ice cream) to name a few. The Italian Extravaganza is priced at Dhs185 per person and diners can twin the three-course set menu with rhubarb bubbly priced at Dhs49 per glass for the entire month of January.
