Dubai is a city that likes to eat late. We’ve long seen people turning up to eat at 10.30pm when we’re leaving and thinking about how hard it’s going to be to get up in the morning – do these people not have jobs? – but Sass Café’s new summer menu is a smart idea.
Because of the location in the financial district it makes sense to target an after-work crowd with a tailored menu. Leave the office, grab a sharpner at a bar then get to here for their early menu served between 7-8pm.
The restaurant and menu is based on the original Sass Café in Monaco, where (along with the famous Jimmy’z nightclub) it serves as one of the regular late-night destinations of the rich and tax-avoiding. The good news is, the menu has travelled well to Dubai where a Mediterranean collection of dishes works as well for our summer as that in the French Rivera.
For Dhs195 you pick one-of-four starters, one-of-four mains and a dessert if you can fit one in. There’s also a wine pairing option if you really want to add to the feeling that you’re eating like they do in the south of France.
Everything we tried was excellent – light, fresh, full of flavour and served by people with French accents – so rather than going into big descriptions, above is our pictorial convincer.
