Pierre

852-2825-4001

The 25th floor of the Mandarin Oriental offers a taste of contemporary French fare from well-known chef Pierre Gagnaire. Chef de cuisine Nicolas Boujema (a student of Gagnaire) leads the culinary efforts, earning the restaurant two Michelin stars in 2011 and 2012. Earth tones, circular mirrors, and soft lighting from multi-faceted gold chandeliers set the tone inside. Tasting menu offerings include dishes with crayfish, hake mousse, and eggplant caviar, while à la carte options range from sea bass with tofu to breast of farm hen with herbs and pasta.

From the From the May 2008 Food & Wine Go List

Housed in a wooden structure modeled on a traditional Emirati home, this spot overlooking the Persian Gulf has amazing views of the man-made Palm Jumeirah island. The menu reflects its waterside setting with imaginatively prepared seafood, like seared scallops in crispy pancetta.

We loved: Wild sea bass with artichoke ravioli and saffron cream.

Insider tip: The terrace tables have the best views.
