Steakhouses are 10 a penny these days in Dubai, so standing out from the competition requires serious action and ambition. Thankfully, Hunters Room & Grill at the Westin Dubai has the latter in abundance along with character, style and originality
Think New York chic with dark woods, leather chairs, red accents and cream curved sofas acting like alcoves for those after privacy – this is one classy joint.
An open kitchen gives you exclusive views of the circus-esque action with flamboyant flames licking the signature steaks.
If the kitchen heat is too much, opt for a table outside. Affording views of the Palm coupled with the sounds of crashing waves, which can be occasionally heard over the beats from neighbouring Barasti bar, it offers the best Dubai has to offer. Palm trees, local artwork and Arabic lanterns add a stunning regional touch.
A soundtrack of soft jazz adds to the laid back vibe at Hunters Room & Grill whose clientele range from groups of pals to couples. The crowd is never rowdy, instead there’s a constant, steady joyous buzz.
It’s a steakhouse so of course meat reigns supreme on the menu. The rib-eye wagyu beef is a healthy option for the carnivore, while fish lovers will delight in the lupe de mar from the sea bass family.
When it comes to sides, the asparagus will help you toward reaching your five-a-day but the truffle fries are a delicious naughty treat full of rich flavour.
What sets Hunters Room & Grill apart from other steakhouses is its attention to detail. Presentation is paramount and dishes are like mini science projects with unusual yet successful gastronomic experiments. For example the classic Black Forest is delivered in a chocolate ball while the Jagermisu is a modern concoction of Jager with tiramisu served with Red Bull ice cream.
They’re serious about their cutlery too with meat and fish lovers given an option of stunningly designed knives, displayed in a glass box.
Great quality meat, succulent concoctions, stylish venue and impeccable service – why not?
A date or a catch up with friends.
