The launch of Gary Rhodes’ latest restaurant concept Rhodes W1 wasa highly-anticipated new opening in Dubai in 2014. From the entrance, where a Kew Garden-esque mixture of fake grass and white butterflies covers the walls, through to the antique and bucolic-looking murals inside, Rhodes W1 creates a pretty, vintage and utterly English vision. Gary Rhodes’ new menu is humble and uncomplicated to the eye, but full of perfectly put together flavours that are sometimes complex, but never confusing. A thoroughly successful move with the times, while still retaining one hundred percent of its uniquely British heart.
Open Mon-Sat 7pm-11pm. Grosvenor House Dubai, Dubai Marina, (04 317 6000).
