Summer is here – but one of the city’s favourite eateries is determined to play it cool.

Rather than run for cover during the UAE heatwave, The Sportsman’s Arms is warming to the task and encouraging foodie fans to head on out to sample its new summer menu.

The Boston-inspired venue is determined to be a popular port of call – even if you feel it’s a few degrees too high to make it out to the nearby tennis courts. There are more than a dozen new dishes on offer, full of the freshest seasonal ingredients. Our favourite is this eye-catching take on the traditional chicken dinner.

The picture-perfect pan-roasted chicken breast is enriched by lemon and garlic green beans, creamy mash and chimichurri sauce. It is a refreshing addition to an impressive range of culinary options at the popular spot at the International Tennis Center in Zayed Sports City.

Diners can indulge in a brilliant selection of sharing dishes, light bites and more substantial feeds. Other palate-pleasing newcomers include sliders, loaded nachos and beef sausage and mash, complete with Irish cheddar and leek champ, and lathered in caramelized red onion gravy.

Don’t sweat the summer, as this is a great time of the year to visit The Sportsman’s Arms. Not only can you tackle an array of delightful dishes, but this is a perfect place to watch another dramatic summer of sport unfold.
Pan roasted chicken: Dhs80. Open daily 8am-2am. The Sportsman’s Arms, Zayed Sports City (02 447 1066).
