Why stick to just one restaurant when you can visit four (or more) in one night?

Starting in October, the Melia Dubai launches The Foodie Hop, a dining experience that will take guests on a culinary adventure.

During the progressive dinner, each course will be served in a different restaurant. Guests will start their evening with an aperitif at Quantum and then move on to Alfonso X to nosh on sushi. The mains will be served at the upscale Indian restaurant Signature by Sanjeev Kapoor. Guests will finish their evening with dessert at the hotel’s rooftop lounge Estrellas (‘stars’ in Spanish).

Guests can reserve the Foodie Hop experience through Melia Dubai’s new mobile app, which is available now for Apple and Android users. Those who book using the app will be entered into a drawing to win a luxury 5-star getaway that includes an overnight stay, dinner and spa experience at Melia Dubai.

Reservations can also be made by calling 04 386 8111. The Foodie Hop experience can be booked from 7pm onward starting October 1. Cost is Dh179 with house beverages.

If you live in Abu Dhabi, there's a similar adventure already happening in the capital at Jumeirah at Etihad Towers called Around the World in One Dinner.

Guests start the night with aperitifs on the terrace at Scott’s restaurant before moving on to dinner at Li Beirut, Tori No Su and Brasserie Angelique. Dessert will be served at Quest. Guests can then enjoy digestifs in Ray’s Bar, while taking in the impressive vistas from the 62nd floor.

Reservations must be made 7 days in advance. Dh850 per person, 02 811 5666.
