Hottest new Dubai restaurants to try in 2021

Mimi Kakushi

Located in the Restaurant Village at Four Seasons Resort Dubai at Jumeirah Beach, Mimi Kakushi is in good company, counting celebrated restaurants such as Coya and Nusr-Et as neighbours.

Step inside and you’ll feel transported to another world with generous use of wood, vintage paintings and pops of green foliage creating an almost homely vibe, while the jazz soundtrack treats you to nostalgic tunes and chefs work on artfully-plated dishes at the open kitchen.

ZETA Seventy Seven

Get ready to be impressed at ZETA Seventy Seven. Perched on the rooftop of the Address Beach Resort, located 310m above sea level, you’ll be treated to incredible views of the city skyline as you dine on the finest contemporary Asian dishes.

The sky-high venue presents two seafood-inspired menus – one for light snacks poolside with poke bowls, sandwiches and burgers, while the a la carte menu has signature flavours such as miso lobster, iced oysters and crispy prawns.

Orfali Bros

Three brothers, one dream. At Orfali Bros ‘bistronomy’ the brothers are proud to serve up dishes that reflect their shared culinary passion.

You’ll want to factor in repeat visits to try everything on the menu, including favourites such as the shish barak a la sgyoza (beef dumplings with a Middle Eastern twist), salmon with miso and creamy tahini, and Umm Salah torrijas (Spanish-style French toast with a touch of spice). They also support local farming, so look out for homegrown produce across the menu.

Hunter & Barrel

Straight from the lands of Australia to the shores of Dubai, Hunter & Barrel is an exciting addition to the city’s culinary scene. Located in Vida Emirates Hills, the restaurant presents an array of signature charcoal-roasted meats and vegetables – think open fire prawns, smoky chicken wings and, of course, prime steaks that are a cut above.

There's even a dedicated 'Steak Programme' menu, so you can choose your dream dish across fillet, rump, sirloin and rib-eye options.

La Casa del Tango

Bringing Argentinian flair to Dubai’s financial district, La Casa del Tango is part restaurant, part dance studio and part boutique. The vision of famous dancer Enrique Macan, the venue celebrates the art of tango, complemented by deliciously fluid motions in the kitchen.

Designed by master asador Jorge Rivero, the menu features bestsellers such as the chorizo parrillero con provolone (grilled sausage with provolone) and huevos gramajo trufados (truffle scrambled eggs).

Fi’lia Dubai

The name Fi’lia is derived from ‘daughter’ in Italian, and the restaurant is an ode to honest, family-style Italian food. Think housemade pastas, rustic breads and cheesy pizzas straight from a firewood oven, all served in a homely setting that delights.

One bite of the classic Margherita pizza with buffalo mozarella, and you’ll know you’re in the right place for fine flavours. Fi'lia also stands out for its talented all-female team, led by chef Sara Aqel who trained under the legendary Massimo Bottura.

CZNBurak Burger

If you're craving a juicy burger with all the trimmings, you're in luck as CZNBurak Burger is now open at The Dubai Mall. The Insta-famous chef Burak Özdemir is renowned for meaty creations in epic proportions, and has already generated a buzz with his fine dining namesake restaurant on Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Boulevard.

At CZNBurak Burger however, the vibe is more laidback with a focus on perfectly-grilled, flavour-packed patties – and yes, there's also a 'giant' version.

Rhain Steakhouse

Combining entertainment, a chic setting and the finest cuts, Rhain Steakhouse at Conrad Hotel on Sheikh Zayed Road serves up a dining experience worth savouring. At Rhain – derived from Celtic language, meaning 'spear' – high-quality steaks are always the main act.

There’s a huge selection of wet and dry aged meats, prime steaks and Wagyu to choose from but, for something out of the ordinary, try the Japanese-inspired meat sushi and steaks coated with gold.

Mbark on new culinary adventures by booking a table at celebrity chef restaurants, enjoying beachside meals in the sunshine, or indulging in exciting foodie experiences in Dubai.
