The Shortlist

Nominated for Best Steakhouse

Sophisticated, stylish, masculine, chic – it is easy to run out of superlatives describing this Argentine-via-London export. It would be easiest to say it does not disappoint on any level and that is why it is regularly packed with city slickers appreciating the finer things. The chrome fittings, monochrome palette and cow print chairs would feel ostentatious in a less confident restaurant but here, along with the knowledgeable and stylish staff it comes across as self-assured. Probably because there is a feeling anything coming out of the kitchen will hit the right note. Steaks are the specialty and staff will explain the numerous and well-procured cuts at length. Simply put if you can afford premium prices there is a steak here you will never forget. Before that try the duck and beef empinadas and round off with a salted dulche de leche and hazelnut.
Dhs320 (with unlimited soft drinks), Dhs395 (with house beverages), Dhs495 (with sparking grape). Fri noon-4pm. Gate Village 05, DIFC (04 422 7898).
