New French Restaurant Opens in Dubai!
Le Relais de l'Entrecôte
The Parisian steakhouse, famed for the secret sauce on their steak and fries takes the pain out of choosing from the menu by offering you their signature dishes, green salad with walnuts and steak frites, for your first and second courses. Once you’ve finished, your main dish will be replenished with more meat and fries if you wish, before you indulge in a selection of fine French desserts. Try the profiteroles (Dhs40). As for the secret sauce, we tasted elements of onion, ginger, parsley and butter in this gravy but whatever the classified combination is, it’s no wonder that it is famed throughout the globe.
