Tasked with finding a spot for lunch with friends, I google-searched “Business lunch Dubai” and ended up going through a whole list of restaurants here.

La Belle Vie Brunch @ Bleu Blanc, Renaissance Hotel Dubai

Kid-free. They should have used that as their promo-tag. I had to check with Bleu Blanc as it was not mentioned anywhere on their website or social media platforms that this was a kid-free brunch. Imagine how excited I was – a chance to leave the little people at home, get dressed up and go […]
