Pizza Express
Restaurant favourite Pizza Express has opened in Dubai’s JLT, and it has jazz on the menu. The new branch, next to the Mövenpick Hotel in Cluster A, will be the first in the region to serve up Jazz@Pizza Express alongside its doughballs. It’s the music night that gave musicians including Jamie Cullum and Amy Winehouse their big breaks at the branch in London’s Dean Street. Every night from 8pm a resident musician will play, plus special guests will also perform. Plus, did you know Victoria Beckham has been spotted dining at a Pizza Express? Yes, Posh eats pizza!
INFO: 11.30am to 1am, Cluster A, JLT, Dubai,

British seafood restaurant Wheeler’s of St James’ was first opened in London in 1856 making it the world’s oldest fish reaturant. Now the chic eaterie has hit the UAE and its DIFC branch is superb! Celebrity chef Marco Pierre White has recreated an upmarket atmosphere with delicious food. And team Ahlan! would recommend the creamy fish pie, gravlax of salmon, steaks and don’t forget to make room for the apple, blackberry and oat crumble with custard and clotted cream. We’re still dreaming about it. The place is superb!
