Dubai Restaurant Week (DRW) is a key element of the annual Dubai Food Festival, offering a calendar of exclusive dining experiences offered in partnership with the city’s best restaurants. Running from 5 to 14 March, foodies can take full advantage of bespoke Dubai Restaurant Week menus at an attractive price that saves customers up to 50 per cent when dining out.
The 2020 edition of Dubai Restaurant Week (DRW) features 37 outlets, and menus created exclusively by some of the world’s top culinary masterminds, including five celebrity chefs – Gordon Ramsay, Vikas Khanna, Akira Back, Greg Malouf and Mathieu Viannay.
In 2020 DRW has been extended to lunchtime dining, which can be a great option for corporate teams and friends. With an array of restaurants to choose from offering two-course signature DRW menus, including COYA, Bread Street Kitchen and Hell’s Kitchen, to name just a few – there’s something for every foodie in the city!
Ahmed Al Khaja, CEO, Dubai Festivals and Retail Establishment (DFRE) says: “Dubai Restaurant Week is at the heart of the Dubai Food Festival. The deals are a chance for some of our city’s most impressive restaurants to highlight their best cuisine to a wider audience. Dubai Food Festival embraces inclusivity, and by encouraging restaurants to offer their food at special festival prices, it means we are allowing more people to experience the very best cuisine our city has to offer. This year’s participating restaurants are set to take diners on a global gourmet journey reflecting Dubai’s dominance as a world culinary hotspot.”
