The Rivington Bar and Grill
Highly Commended Best British 6 Comments
Quite a favourite and go-to haunt on the Dubai scene, The Rivington Grill specialises in a fashionable, unfussy version of British cooking. The interiors are clean and modern and include the odd accent worthy of its original sister venue in Shoreditch, London, such as the Tracey Emin-esque slogans emblazoned on the walls in neon signs. Diners at the Souk Al Bahar branch can enjoy those much vied for views of the Burj Khalifa and Dubai Fountain, while Madinat guests are treated to an equally ambient spot. Service tends to be proficient and capable, although it can at times be rather brittle and unfriendly. The venue manages to straddle a fresh, young and up-to-date buzz.
