Pit Stop Menus: Try these set menus in Al Bateen

The Abu Dhabi Grand Prix is the finale of the Formula 1 season and people flock from all around the world to the UAE capital to experience the thrilling occasion.

During Race Week there are loads more things to do away from the track, including big parties, brunches and shopping deals – and it wouldn’t be an Abu Dhabi event if there wasn’t food involved.

With that in mind, Time Out Abu Dhabi has teamed up with some of Abu Dhabi’s very best restaurants and the Department of Tourism and Culture – Abu Dhabi, to bring you Pit Stop Menus.

The idea is simple – each restaurant will offer a special set menu between November 14 and December 2 to showcase its very best dishes.

Here are the restaurants taking part in Al Bateen.
