Another brunch to try — La Parrilla has just launched a new family friendly brunch at Jumeirah Beach Hotel.

With views of the Burj Al Arab and Arabian Gulf on the 25th floor of the hotel, La Parrilla’s new brunch is served at the table. Dishes include torta de quinoa (quinoa cake), arepa de pato (lightly fried cornmeal rounds served with duck), grilled meats and seafood and sides such as Brazilian-style baked black beans and roasted vegetables with salsa. For desserts, options include the Latin American classic dulce de leche with banana or acai and white chocolate cheesecake. Fridays from 12:30pm to 4pm. From Dh325. For reservations, call 04 366 5866.

Cravin’ Cajun at Novotel Dubai Al Barsha has expanded their menu to include an assortment of dishes from around the United States, instead of featuring just those from Louisiana and the deep south. New dishes on the menu include pan roasted salmon, Salisbury steak, baked ravioli, chicken taquitos, Chile lime crab salad and more. The hotel’s executive chef, Mihir Mandal developed the menu. He says: “The new menu has been created to help define the different styles of food and flavours that can be found throughout the USA. I wanted to balance our offering of classic Creole favourites as well as add some new interesting dishes. It’s like a miniature tour of the USA.” Cravin’ Cajun is open 7pm to 11pm, Saturday to Monday. For reservations, call 04 304 9000.
