GARTH | A New Date Night Gem to Delight in Dubai


If you’re looking for a hot new date night location this week, chances are you have a few pre-requisites: fantastic food, delicious drinks, a stunning setting, and a seductive atmosphere to name a few. It's not that we are fussy, Dubai has just set the bar incredibly high when it comes to dining options in the city.


Luckily, ‘Neo-Bistro’ GARTH has all our boxes firmly ticked with a newly launched date night experience that contains all the ingredients required for a ‘nearly the weekend’ romantic rendezvous. Foodie fanatics can delight in a delectable culinary offering amidst unmistakable elegance and an effortlessly cool atmosphere that begins this Thursday 30th June and on consecutive Thursdays from 7:00pm.


Serving up four exceptional courses and a bottle of grape for just AED499 per couple, the GARTH date night experience promises the perfect evening complete with exquisite food that takes inspiration from Italy, Greece, and cuisines from the South of France. Co-created by Executive Chef Alena Solodovichenko and Head Chef Mohamed Musthafa, the duo have cultivated a stellar menu that serves unique Southern European cuisine that is both healthy and hearty, tasty and wholesome.


Couples can begin with an option from the raw bar including Atlantic salmon tartare with an orange, passionfruit sphere, and ponzu sauce, or beef tartare served with truffle and Jerusalem artichoke crisps. Appetizers take shape in the form of artichoke hummus or kale and mixed green salad.


Mains include sweet potato risotto with coconut-infused cream, slow-cooked beef cheek paccheri with veal jus and parmesan, or Hamour served with zucchini linguine, scallop velouté, and parsley froth. Don’t forget to save room for dessert; a choice of Tiramisu or molten Hazelnut chocolate fondant served with malt ice cream.


All four wines on offer are handpicked by celebrated international sommelier and wine journalist, Olga Bebekina whose outstanding selection elevates each course and satiates each taste. Choose from red, white, rose and sparkling.


Nestled in Kempinski Mall of the Emirates, GARTH is a laid-back hidden gem with a tasteful interior palette of warm beiges, browns, cream and dusky pink with contrasting textures. A stunning pampas grass display and a white baby grand piano take centre stage and add to the ambiance,


allowing you to catch up in style with eyes only for each other.
