LA PETITE MAISON, GATE VILLAGE, DIFC, DUBAI
The interior of La Petite Maison, or LPM as it’s affectionately known, is that of a high-end French brasserie. Ripe tomatoes and olive oil decorate the tables, while bright and colourful pieces of art spice up the crisp cream walls.
The burrata is the most popular starter. And it’s easy to see why, with fresh cream oozing out of the soft mozzarella, topped with sweet cherry tomatoes, olive oil and fresh basil, making it utterly delicious.
There’s no need for food envy, as dishes are designed for sharing and placed in the middle of the table. The kitchen prepares dishes from scratch with fresh ingredients.
Soak up the electric atmosphere. There are no sounds of clanging glasses filling empty restaurant air here, as the bustling vibe of the eatery is infectious.
Get serenaded at your table by The Troubadours. We were lucky enough to dine on a night when the British quartet were in town, but luckily they’re regulars at the restaurant, where they move between diners and accept requests.
