Pit Stop Menus: The seafood restaurants you need to try

The Abu Dhabi Grand Prix is the finale of the Formula 1 season and people flock from all around the world to the UAE capital to experience the thrilling occasion.

During Race Week there are loads more things to do away from the track, including big parties, brunches and shopping deals – and it wouldn’t be an Abu Dhabi event if there wasn’t food involved.

With that in mind, Time Out Abu Dhabi has teamed up with some of Abu Dhabi’s very best restaurants and the Department of Tourism and Culture – Abu Dhabi, to bring you Pit Stop Menus.

The idea is simple – each restaurant will offer a special set menu between November 14 and December 2 to showcase its very best dishes.
Here are the specialised seafood restaurants.

Catch
With an incredible location on the Corniche overlooking the crystal clear waters of the Arabian Gulf, Catch definitely has some of the best views in town and it’s a great place to grab a bite to eat, too. Make your way there on Race Week and you can enjoy a three-course menu for Dhs199 and take your pick from a host of dishes including sea bass ceviche, gyoza, miso-marinated salmon, wok-fried noodles, chocolate fondant and more.
Dhs199. Daily noon-1am. Nation Riviera Beach Club, Corniche West (02 611 0909).

Fishmarket
Upon entering this seafood restaurant, the first thing that will strike you is the huge market-style set up of fresh fish and shellfish. Normally no menu is required as you simply pick your fish, sauce and side from the display infront of you, but the Pit Stop menu includes a taste of all the best dishes that the restaurant has to offer. It starts with canapes and tom yum seafood soup, before moving on to sautéed shrimps, squid and mussels plus baked king fish and red snapper in sweet and sour sauce. You’ll also get a selection of sides and fruit for dessert.
Dhs385. Daily 12.30pm-11pm. InterContinental Abu Dhabi, King Abdullah Bin Abdul Aziz Al Saud Street (02 666 6888).
