Hotel buffets are often at risk of being predictable and uninspiring, but this couldn’t be further from the case at Le Vendôme Brasserie situated within the lavish, five-star Emirates Palace Hotel. Located in the heart of Abu Dhabi, the Emirates Palace is the embodiment of opulence in everything from its design and facilities to its many dining provisions. Boasting over a kilometre of unspoiled beach, landscaped pools and a private marina overlooking the bay, the Emirates Palace is the perfect destination for a once-in-a lifetime vacation or for a sumptuous meal at the likes of Le Vendôme Brasserie.
Stylish décor gives the restaurant an elegant aesthetic, and for those who like to dine alfresco, Le Vendôme’s beautiful terrace overlooking the marina is a tranquil spot in which to enjoy the very best dishes of the Middle East and abroad. The chefs here use seasonal and carefully-sourced produce to ensure that each dish is precisely fashioned by hand to stand out, as opposed to being just another dish in the hotel’s all-you-can-eat buffet.
Le Vendôme Brasserie is open for leisurely breakfasts, lunches to linger over, and sumptuous dinners that are perfect after a day’s sightseeing around Abu Dhabi (or lounging by the pool). Breakfast includes all the usual items, but executed to perfection. Everything from the bread and pastries to freshly-cooked hot dishes are of the highest quality, as are the hot drinks and juices on offer.
Lunch and dinner sees everything from healthy salads, to delicious soups and sandwiches to hearty curries or filet de boeuf. There are also traditional Middle Eastern dishes too, so visitors can sample the local cuisine alongside international favourites. Guests with a sweet tooth will be pleased to know that there are plenty of desserts available at Le Vendôme Brasserie too so be sure to save room.
