Weekend food guide: Almayass, Thanani, The Restaurant at Address
The food scene in the UAE continues to serve up new offerings and this weekend, savour the flavours created by three newly opened hotspots, from a much-loved fusion restaurant to a new gastronomic concept inspired by luxury European living.
The Restaurant at Address, Address Boulevard
Mimicking a luxury European abode, The Restaurant at Address is divided into 11 separate spaces from the kitchen to the lounge, dressing room and library. For a more intimate affair, the terrace, as well as a hidden private room, provides the perfect settings to indulge in an all-day degustation menu that fuses European and Mediterranean flavours.

Thanani, Al Zorah Pavilion, Ajman
Overlooking Al Zorah Creek, Thanani – translated to "pairing" in Arabic – is Ajman's newest go-to restaurant for an all-round European cuisine. Recommended are the Loch Duart salmon, Kataifi prawns and the various types of burrata flown directly from Puglia, Italy. Pair the delectable menu with a sharing concept and Thanani guarantees an engaging culinary affair.

Almayass, Sofitel, Downtown Dubai
After outposts in Kuwait, Riyadh, Jeddah, New York, Doha and Abu Dhabi, the Lebanese-Armenian restaurant is finally calling Dubai home. The influences of the two cultures are evident from the ingredients right up to the décor where bright and vivid are the orders of the day. Indulge in classic delights such as the four-cheese soubereg and oven-baked manti.
