Time Out Says

One of the most creative restaurants to arrive on the Dubai dining scene over the past year, folly by Nick & Scott is all about classic and often minimal ingredients, prepared in new and exciting ways.

And the views, from the top of the Souk Madinat Jumeirah complex, aren’t half bad either.

While the menu is composed of small plates designed for sharing, the best way to really experience the skill (and it truly is skill) of founding chefs Nick Alvis and Scott Price is by booking your seats at The Kitchen Bar.

Here, diners can taste their way through a menu of signatures (with or without a guided pairing from the excellent sommelier) created by the chefs themselves, who are on hand to explain the story of every dish.

In short, it’s absolutely spectacular. The end result is a wholly bespoke, utterly entertaining meal, featuring some magnificent creations – and we’re not just talking about the buttery, garlicky escargot-filled “doughnuts for grown-ups”. Or the downright sublime, thank-goodness-they’re-on-the-bar-snacks-menu guinea fowl sausage rolls.

Oh, just go already.

The bottom line

A truly one-off restaurant experience.
