The Dubai restaurant openings to have on your radar this September


Foodie calendars at the ready… 

From a 17-course fine dining concept in Dubai Marina to a Miami-inspired beach club on Palm Jumeirah, there are plenty of exciting openings in the city this month. It’s no surprise that Dubai was recently named one of the world’s top cities for foodies. And, if these latest openings share one thing in common, it’s that they should be added to your to-dine lists immediately.

Here are 8 places to book a table this September: 


Nestled along the waters of the Jumeirah Al Qasr lagoon, hop on an abra and set sail for what might just be our favourite new Indian restaurant. Atrangi by Ritu Dalmia is the latest addition to the Jumeirah Al Qasr resort. Each and every detail of the restaurant is carefully thought out, from cocktails that bring to life well-loved Indian flavours, to the crockery found on every table which was hand-crafted and shipped in from India, where the design is a love letter to the women and the rich culture of the nation. Chef Ritu has carefully crafted dishes that you would find in the homes and on the streets of India, resurrecting age-old practices with a fresh twist.

Atrangi, Jumeirah Al Qasr, open from 6pm to 12am. Tel: (0)4 410 6548 @atrangi.dubai


Now open in the Dubai Edition, Agora is a stylish new cocktail bar specialising in gin and tonic. A social spot that draws inspiration from the ancient Greek ‘agora,’ which served as a central gathering place. The mixology takes centre stage, with master of libations Simone Caporal helming the bar. Intimate interiors, live DJ sets, and light, Mediterranean-inspired sharing plates compliment the beverage menu.

Agora, The Dubai Edition, Downtown Dubai. Daily, 6pm to 3am. Tel:(0)58 592 5823. @agora_dxb

The Guild

In The Guild’s second phase of opening, guests will be able to book either The Rockpool or The Salon, in addition to The Nurseries and Potting Shed which opened last month. The Rockpool, as the name may suggest, prides itself on a menu of show-stopping seafood, which guests can handpick from live seafood tanks. The tables are arranged around an oyster shucking station and a rockpool, where sea urchin and Atlantic lobster will be housed. An adjoining bar will serve as an alluring spot for pre-or post-dinner drinks, while the intimate private dining room will serve as a superb spot for get-togethers of up to 16. The main restaurant at the heart of The Guild is The Salon, an ornate dining hall designed to transport you to a bustling brasserie in London or New York. At the open-plan kitchen, culinary masters will whip up a menu that puts wood fire and charcoal cooking centre stage.
