Intersect By Lexus
Time Out Says
Designed by interior designer Masamichi Katayama, the man behind the Tokyo outpost, there are clear Japanese elements in this project – just visit the toilets for the most obvious. But these are blended with features that characterise the UAE perfectly – the ceiling reflect the country’s ubiquitous sand dunes. There are also artistic, futuristic, automotive elements in the design, to remind you that you’re in a creative space delivered by a luxury car brand, after all. It’s a truly unique spot in Dubai.
Intersect is the kind of place you’d come to for a light bite to eat over a bit of creative confab at breakfast or lunch, and this, the café does well. With the Intersect eggs Benedict, you get one with salmon and one with smoked brisket, meaning you don’t have to choose. And it’s a true reward – eggs perfectly runny, brisket tender and smoky.
The business lunch offers great value, too, at Dhs98 for two courses and Dhs110 for three. The steak sandwhich is decent, though it won’t blow your mind, but the Chilean sea bass is a standout, with it’s zesty, yuzu-dressed turnips and smoked onion purée.
For something a bit different, this is one for the must list.
The bottom line
Creative, inventive café serving good grub.
