Brunch with class
Sprawling views, fine cuts and polite company
May 16, 2016
The term “Friday brunch” in the UAE tends to bring with it certain connotations. But your Friday afternoons don’t have to be spent in vast buffet-filled halls, waiting in queues and stockpiling at 3.45pm — there is another way, namely the new brunch at Prime68.
The elegant New York-style steakhouse perched atop the JW Marriott Marquis hotel, provides a sophisticated break from the norm. Ordering off a carefully selected menu of the kitchen’s most popular dishes (and access to its rather extensive cellar), it’s an ideal place for a long, stress-free lunch, either with your partner or a smallish group of friends who value conversation over trying to consume their bodyweight in comestibles.
As you might expect, steaks play a central role in the brunch with fantastic cuts of prime heritage breed beef on offer, as well as a perfectly prepared roasts with all the requisite trimmings. Being on the 68th floor, the daytime views across the Dubai coastline are exceptional, so it’s well worth asking for a window seat when making a reservation. You won’t regret it.
