The Shortlist

Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse, The Address Dubai Marina
Nominated for Best Business Lunch

This rather classy steakhouse manages to achieve two things at once: it appears airy and bright despite the dark, moody Mad Men-style decor – in small part due to the massive windows that offer rather impressive views of Dubai Marina. As a location for a business meeting, it’s ideal. It carries an air of sophistication that will impress colleagues alongside those aforementioned views. The lunch menu, surprisingly, doesn’t include steaks, but you can order à la carte as well. Staff don’t go overboard on the platitudes and serve reasonable if not Earth-shattering food in a reserved, professional manner.
Dhs109 for three courses. Served Sun-Thu noon-3pm. The Address Dubai Marina, Dubai Marina (04 454 9538).
