After opening in 2010, West 14th garnered a loyal following among the Palm Jumeirah’s hip young professionals, and the clientele keep coming back for more. We’d attribute its success to the buzzy atmosphere, laid-back cool and New York styling, featuring industrial warehouse-style ceilings and red brick walls. On our last visit we were disappointed to note that several dishes had been manually crossed off the menu (surely they could reprint it, rather than tantalise with options that are unavailable?). Luckily, there are still plenty of steaks to choose from, with all bar one priced at less than Dhs250, and each cooked and seasoned to perfection. The downside? Side dishes are sold separately, so you’ll have to fork out extra to taste the delightfully fluffy, gorgeously chunky fries. The service, while friendly enough, can be a little on the slow side, although we’ll give staff the benefit of the doubt: maybe they’re just easing off to let guests enjoy a leisurely meal in typically cool NYC style.
