The Waldorf Astoria brand is well renowned for being a frontrunner in the business for chic retreats and some of the most luxurious hotels in the world. Their Dubai Palm Jumeirah site is no exception, and it offers a whole myriad of dining and drinking options to boot.
One of our favourite spots is Social by Heinz Beck, the rich and opulent Michelin star dining room which serves up a rather pleasing Italian menu designed by renowned chef Heinz Beck.
The generous windows afford diners stellar views of the city outside, which are equally as impressive during the bright sunshine of the day as they are at night, when the lights of the city come on to illuminate the skyscrapers beyond. Classic furniture and panelled wood walls complete the picture for a relaxing spot that is perfect for entertaining clients in, or for catching up with friends and family over a few drinks and dinner.
Enjoy a range of high end, modern plates served up from the menu of intriguing sounding dishes. Ingredients are luxurious, while their handling is exemplary – showcasing the very best of the season’s produce. Begin with fois gras, beef tartare or scallops with black truffle before moving on to an intermediate course of silky, homemade pasta. For mains choose between tempting-sounding dishes showcasing things like black cod, duck and beef tenderloin. Desserts aren’t to be missed either with a delicious line-up of classics which includes a rich tiramisu and a lemon tart, but one thing’s for sure, these won’t be your standard serves. The kitchen at Social by Heinz Beck are known for their creative twists on dishes.
Social by Heinz Beck regularly run special menus, at times like Christmas and Valentine’s Day, so make sure to look out for seasonal highlights. The team also take part in the Waldorf Astoria’s Dining Expedition which allows you to do a dinner safari where you eat each course of your meal at a different restaurant – with Social by Heinz Beck typically being chosen for mains.
