And Fairmont Bab Al Bahr is by no means bucking the trend, with two new offers launched at two of its outlets.
Levantine eatery Maison Beirut has launched a brand-new, family-style brunch serving up authentic Lebanese dishes. Priced at Dhs149 per person, for a set menu with soft drinks, the brunch is served on both Fridays and Saturday, from noon until 4pm.
Served to the table to share, dishes include fattoush and tabbouleh, hummus, warak enab and shankilish, followed by a mixed grilled platter, and a selection of desserts including halawet el jeben and caramel mohalabya.
Elsewhere in the hotel, Marco’s New York Italian, from chef Marco Pierre White, is now offering unlimited Italian bubbles every Monday evening between 6pm and 9pm, for Dhs159 per person.
Looking for a nibble to pair with your drinks? We can’t get enough of the crispy Buffalo wings. Feeling a bit more highfalutin? Go for the Boston chilli crab cake.
The American-Italian restaurant also does a kids-eat-free offer, where little ones aged five and under dine for free, while there’s 50 percent off meals for those aged six to 12.
Just the thought of those savings is enough to make you hungry.
