The hot new brunches and restaurants you need to try

 
EVERY WED
Try the Intersect By Lexus Night Brunch
Here at Ahlan!, we’re always complaining that there aren’t enough evening brunches, so we’re pleased to announce that Intersect By Lexus has waded into this area of the market with a Wednesday night experience “filled with artistic expression and musical high notes” from local vocal artist Melissa Wong. On the menu: unlimited hot and cold starters and desserts either side of one “feel-good cuisine” main course created with healthy ingredients. There are also healthy summer cocktails, including the berry lemonade, home-made berry purée and freshly squeezed lemon, and the Frozen Flower, fresh mango juice and home-made passionfruit purée and topped with a passionfruit and lemon balm garnish. Lip-smacking! INFO: Dhs175 including soft drinks, Dhs250 including hops and grape, Dhs495 including bubbles, 7pm-11pm, Intersect By Lexus, DIFC, Gate Village 7,

Fine-dine at Armani for Less
During the summer meltdown, mall trawls suddenly seem so much more attractive, thanks to hot sales and freezing air-con. If you find yourself in The Dubai Mall (and you know you will), end your shopathon with a rewarding meal deal at the deluxe Armani Hotel, just across the road. There are four-course menus to snap up at three brilliant restaurants: Armani/Ristorante (Dhs350 for the Sardinian experience), Armani/Deli (Dhs300 for a taste of Naples), and Armani/Amal (Dhs300 for the Rajasthan royal treatment). The hard part will be deciding which one to choose. INFO: Offer available until 31 August 2016, 7pm-11pm, 04 888 3666, restaurant.reservations@armanihotels.com, armanihotels.com
