Four Seasons Resort Dubai in Jumeirah Beach have relaunched their Saturday brunch in Suq, their family restaurant.

Pan-asian delights @ Nonya Dubai, Taj JLT Dubai

We took the folks over to the Taj one afternoon mid-May to review the newly opened Nonya over dinner.

It was nice to return to Le Rose in the Address Fountain Views on a Saturday afternoon with friends. This time for brunch, aptly called ‘Le Brunch’. Is it just me but is everything french sounds just a little more posh? 😉 Here’s what to expect from the brunch at Le Rose.
