It has been far too long since I sat down for a brunch, especially with it being the traditional to-do on a Dubai Friday.
So with the opportunity to sample brunch at Dubai’s latest hot spot, Versace Hotel Dubai it was a no brainer.
Mr. Z (who did an exceptional job as photographer) and I arrived slightly early and wasted no time snapping away in the beautiful lobby.
It’s so lovely infact that I couldn’t help but secretly plan a stay-cation for a weekend in one of their 215 rooms.
From pillar to pillow everything was Versace !
What I’m wearing:
Purse Swiss boutique (Lugano)
It wasn’t long before Louise joined us and we continued our happy shooting.
We sat in the lobby for a quick catch up in chairs embossed with golden winged lions.
Doesn’t get much more Versace than that does it ?
What Louise is wearing:
Dress Top Shop
Shoes Giuseppe Zanotti
Very hungry and ready to start brunch we headed down the halls to Giardino.
We took our seats with a welcome glass of bubbles (in a Versace glass of course).
The international brunch (mainly Arabic, Chinese, Indian and Italian cuisines) from 1pm to 4pm every Friday to the relaxed weekend vibes of a live DJ.
But enough chat, time to grab a plate and get to it!
Yes… it’s a pure chocolate Leaning Tower of Pisa.
Plate one for me.
I love starting off a brunch with sushi and seafood.
Plate two – It’s ok if lobster and foie gras share a plate right?
p.s. The creme brulee foie gras was out of this world good. If you go I highly recommend it.
All washed down with a fresh iced tea.
Before moving on a freshly made plate of pasta (prepared by a team of proper Italians I might add).
As you can imagine we were becoming quite full by this point.
But dessert was still on the menu and please tell me, how you can you say no to an ice cream trolley?!
(I must apologize as the camera battery gave out and I had to switch to iPhone.)
We finished off the afternoon chatting with full happy tummies before heading home.
If you are thinking about giving the Versace brunch a try I do recommend it.
Thanks for joining us!
