Reform Social & Grill The Lakes, Dubai
Leave the bread alone. You’ll need to save space for the hearty feasts that make up this sophisticated, gastro pub-inspired menu.
Starters are for sharing. There are so many tasty morsels to choose from that it’s best to agree on a few with your dinner date and share. Whatever you pick, though, the rich chicken liver pâté is a real highlight.
If you’re a carnivore, welcome home! While there are a couple of veggie options, Reform’s best dishes feature corn-fed chicken, lamb shank and high-end Angus steaks. Accompanying sauces are perfectly judged to provide explosive levels of flavour.
Leave room for dessert. You really won’t want to miss out on the rhubarb and ginger cheesecake, served topsy-turvy in a cute glass jar with the biscuit base crumbled on top.
It’s perfect for making new friends. The laidback atmosphere is one of Reform’s biggest draws. The energetic playlist discourages sleepy food slumps, and the airy setting provides a light, spirited experience.
A midweek visit is worthwhile. The restaurant does a steak or lobster lunch from Sunday to Thursday for Dhs66, and ladies’ night on Tuesdays offers great deals on bubbly.
