Dine out

This month we’re... très chic

Now that summer is over, we’re gearing up for the busy months to come… but who says we can’t make time to be glamorous?

  • We want desserts!


Let’s get à la mode! We’ll be restocking our A/W wardrobe with revamped classic favourites like this pleather pencil skirt from Stradivarius, chunky pearl necklace from Marks and Spencer, comfy cosy monochrome sweater from Parfois, and these fab suede lace-up heels from Steve Madden.


Sweater, Dh189, Parfois; Pencil skirt, Dh130, Stradivarius; Pearl necklace, Dh135, Marks and Spencer; Shoes, Dh469, Steve Madden.

 Ciaté Geltox Kit

We’ll grab a few girlfriends and head for Gossip Desserts (050 988 0008) to enjoy a light lunch and indulge a little (maybe a lot) in the adorable cakes in a jar. Instead of heading to the salon, we’ll be having a relaxing mani/pedi day at home with our Ciaté Geltox Kit (Dh750; Virgin Megastore). Au revoir, chipped nails!

 Mochi Cream

For the perfect Eid Al Adha gift, we’ll snag a few Mochi Cream gift boxes from Edo café (04 344 0833) filled with its exclusive frozen version of the Asian delicacies. Yet with 12 flavours to try, we may just eat a few boxes ourselves. C’est la vie!

 Talise Spa

Summer has ended, but that doesn’t mean we can’t spoil ourselves with a mini daycation at Talise Spa, Madinat Jumeirah with its Spamazing offer – a 60-min massage, yoga class, and private beach access (Dh550 weekdays, Dh590 weekends, 04 366 6818).

 The Rib Room

While the kids are home with the sitter, we’ll be splurging on an elegant date night at The Rib Room with the His and Her set menu (Dh620 per couple; 04 453 0444). And to round things off we might just head over to the haute Solo Bistronomia for the special Sunday night drink and chocolate pairing (Dh140; 04 370 8999). Bon appétit!
