Boulevard Kitchen brunch review

Latest Boulevard Kitchen brunch review, a new brunch in Dubai for 2016. Includes details, start time, hours and restaurant information

Brunch

4/5

Keenly priced and brilliantly staffed, the Manzil Downtown’s Levant Brunch is a relaxed, friendly affair that caters as well to families – kids under five eat for free and there’s a small, staffed kids’ play area roped-off from the main seating space – as it does the locals and tourists who are packing it out.

It’s easy to see why. Laid-back and informal, the food is presented with (often rare) logic, the wide-ranging and delicious salad station segueing into a succession of stunning stews featuring meat, seafood and veg. Round the corner lies a vast array of breads, then a grill station churning out knockout prawns and kebabs and, of course, a vast pile of perfectly cooked lamb and rice.

If you can manage to, we’d advise you try to not keep going back for refills of that – head through to the stairs at the back of the restaurant and you will descend in front of a massive table of sensational desserts. They are a fantastic end to easily one of the most relaxed brunch experiences we’ve had in the city, which has superbly friendly service and a great vibe.

It’s not exactly one that you’ll take people to who you want to wow, nor is it necessarily a special occasion offering. But the Levant Brunch doesn’t really seem to be aiming for either, positioning itself far more as a chilled out, cooked-by-mama experience away from the outside hustle and bustle of Downtown.

Dhs195 (soft drinks), Dhs295 (selected beverages). Fri 1pm-4pm. Manzil Downtown Dubai, Mohammed Bin Rashid Boulevard (04 888 344404 888 3444).
