What does it look like: Imperium’s French-themed brunch provides a refreshing change to the typical Dubai brunch, a truly civilized way to enjoy Friday afternoon. The magnificent decorations, vaulted ceilings, oversized chandeliers and Renaissance-style gilded details create an elegant atmosphere, although in the current perfect weather in the open air, you’d better book a table on the more relaxed outdoor terrace. Here, a talented quartet-with accordion players wearing berets-provides all the live entertainment you need (you can’t see the contortionist!).
The buffet is rich and varied, leaning towards bistro-style products, including various casseroles, grilled meats and other grilled foods, various cheeses, oysters and plenty of salads. However, for me, the most striking thing is the fresh seafood barbecue area, where you can order melt-in-mouth lobsters and delicious moules marinières. If the buffet does not provide you with enough choices, there are also a la carte options for main dishes, including roast chicken, pork belly and delicious chanterelle risotto. It’s easy to overeat the main course, but if you don’t make room for dessert, you’ll regret it-the products on offer include authentic French specialties such as orange blossom bourbon, Engadine pie, and Savarin. rare. Rinse it off with the best sparkling wine or drink to bring a decadent experience in a good way. For those who want to continue, the venue after the party is the Voda Bar next door, where half-price drinks are available, or if you want to be more relaxed at the end of the day, you can go to the giant chessboard in the hotel garden to show your skills. !
If you want to: From AED 275 per person (soft drinks), and AED 550 for bubble packaging.
