Sleek, stylish and boasting a fabulous view of the Atlantis and the Palm Jumeirah bay, Chicago Meatpackers has got the setting for a hearty steak meal just right. The industrial chic décor, made up of exposed brick and metalwork, neon signs, wooden flooring and a range of seating that includes bar stools, banquette seating, and tables and chairs makes for a very cool space indeed, whether you’re dining with friends, family or business associates.
Chicago Meatpackers isn’t new – it already has three very popular restaurants in Germany – but this is restaurant group’s first restaurant in Dubai. The brand’s concept is simple: good food, good company and good times. The food is certainly good thanks to a menu full of USDA steak cuts, filling sides and refreshing drinks. There are vegetarian options available, but make no mistake: it’s all about the steaks here. The taste of quality beef and the kitchen’s favourite preparation method – on the lava stone grill – is something meat lovers will find difficult to resist. Boasting a range of grilled specialities from short rib and veal chops to grilled chicken and fish, plus salads, burgers and desserts, these guys promise you won’t leave hungry.
Classic nachos, chicken wings, carpaccio and burrata are some of the great appetisers on offer to ease you in before the main event. Once you’ve got your appetite primed, tuck into a prime 90-day wet-aged USDA Certified Angus steak, flown in from a single source deep in the heart of America’s beef country. There are sharing cuts for those dining in groups, and three different types of burger: beef, chicken and veggie.
To help wash it all down, Chicago Meatpackers serves a range of great sips including handmade cocktails, and there’s a short but very sweet dessert list too that includes a New York style cheesecake and a decadent molten chocolate cake.
