Tickets for Cirque de Cuisine: The Festive Edition are on sale now

1/2

Prepare to make room in your bellies on Thursday December 6 – Atlantis The Palm’s huge megabrunch is making a grand return, and this time it’s getting the winter wonderland treatment.

Cirque de Cuisine: The Festive Edition will feature acts from Dubai’s very own Cirque le Soir, and for the first time Cantonese restaurant Hakkasan will be joining the line-up of restaurants.

Taking place at the Winter Wonderland-themed The Avenues from 7pm until 11pm, the event will treat guests to performances as they roam the “snow-filled walkways”, featuring fire eaters and blowers, feather fan dancers, magicians and acrobats.

Not forgetting it's Christmas, brunchgoers will be greeted with Christmas carols, along with venues decked out with Christmas trees, snow-capped street lamps, fairy lights and life-sized nutcrackers.

Where to start your festive feed? You may want to kick things off with newcomer Hakkasan, whose branch at Jumeirah Emirates Towers won Time Out Dubai’s Best Chinese restaurant in 2018.

For some Japanese flavours, Nobu will be busting out roaming trays for guests to pick sushi from, plus signature tacos, yellow tail sushi jalapeño, beef tenderloin anticucho and more.

Gordon Ramsay’s Bread Street Kitchen & Bar will be dishing out mini turkey Wellington, truffle mac ’n’ cheese fritters with chestnuts, along with veal and fennel sausage rolls.

You can’t go wrong with pizza, and Ronda Locatelli will have plenty of its signature pies from its wood pizza oven readily available, as well as homemade ravioli and caserecce pasta with duck ragu.

Seafire Steakhouse and Bar will also be participating, with live cooking stations serving roast turkey and an Atlantis beef carvery, as well as a seafood beverage bar.

Lastly, for some dining under the sea, The Lost Chambers Aquarium will have a selection of sweet desserts by Ossiano’s chef de cuisine Gregoire Berger, including caramelized s'more marshmallows, French croissant toast and smoked nitro popcorn.

If you’re not ready to head home, Bread Street Kitchen & Bar will be hosting a festive after-party from 11pm to 3am, with resident DJs spinning classic Christmas tunes.

That’s not the only seasonal brunch to tuck into, as there are plenty of venues across the city setting up specially-themed brunches on Christmas Day. It will feature a selection of dishes exclusive to the Dubai location.
