Time Out Dubai staff
Taking inspiration from the area of New York it’s named after, Tribeca Kitchen & Bar is urban and trendy with a casual and unpretentious vibe. Exposed brick work is adorned with large paintings of singers, classic American movie icons and graffiti-style murals of the Statue of Liberty. The outside terrace has rows of wooden benches and tables, while inside diners sit at high tables or relax on leather sofas. Tribeca makes a point of serving organic and healthy food, and its brunch has a table of salads with a few choices of grains and leaves, plus a chef on hand to serve you burrata. There’s a pasta station serving up gnocchi and a selection of roast meats and salmon, with perfectly cooked spicy beef being our favourite. There’s also a popular barbecue section. Tribeca serves organic grape during brunch, but disappointingly not the organic hops they have behind the bar. The mixed beverages are great, though, and shorts are also on offer. This brunch is popular with groups and couples looking for a chilled-out afternoon, with a great DJ spinning a selection of rare funk and soul while you dine. The start time is a bonus for those who like to lie-in on Fridays. Dhs249 (soft drinks), Dhs349 (house beverages). Fri 2pm-5pm. JA Ocean View Hotel, The Walk, JBR, www.tribeca.ae (050 345 6067).
