With a dedicated dining space, the vibe in this two-tier dining space is unmistakably nightlife-orientated. Amid the dimly lit and predominantly black interiors, the walls are dotted with sultry monochrome portraits of what looks like models straight out of a fashion spread. The staff here are exceptional, and the level of service is friendly and warm and even quite fun. Staff also gain respect for their knowledge of both the food and the beverage menu, and easy ability to offer guidance on either. The menu is dramatically international, spanning sushi through to risotto. These plates also look stunning in presentation across the board.
Open daily 6pm-12.30am. JW Marriott Marquis, Business Bay, Sheikh Zayed Road, (04 321 4541).
