Over the last few years, Dubai has lured many of the world’s top chefs to its restaurants, bringing serious international gourmets in their wake. Prices are high but so are the standards – pick from this list of temples to gastronomy for your big budget blowout and it will be money well spent.
At.mosphere. Start at the top! On the 122nd floor of Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building, in fact, where At.mosphere specializes in top quality grill. This is the planet’s highest restaurant; if you can get further from the ground and still enjoy food this good, congratulations on the purchase of your private jet.
Ristorante. Further down Burj Khalifa, world-class Italian is on offer in the Giorgio Armani-designed Ristorante. The décor features the pared-down sophistication you’d expect from the man who can discern a thousand different shades between grey and beige, and Ristorante’s pasta is widely regarded as the best in Dubai.
