Fancy one of the best weekend brunches in Dubai inspired by the flavours of France with a scrumptious spread of delicacies from the land and sea? Look no further than A.O.C. All-Day Dining at Sofitel Dubai Jumeirah Beach. The restaurant’s ‘Le Grand’ Friday brunch in JBR offers a mix of French and international specialities with a selection of soft and house beverages, which you can snap up for an exclusive price as a myconcierge member.
Let the indulgence begin with a lavish charcuterie selection, an assortment of fresh salads, tempting terrines, homemade foie gras, beef tartare and Marseilles fish soup. Live cooking stations feature prime meat cuts, maki rolls, sashimi and seafood favourites including oysters, mussels, crabs and prawns. The turophiles (cheese lovers) are definitely in for a treat with a cheese station that highlights some of the very best international varieties of this brunch-mandatory delight. For those who prefer their indulgence on the lighter side, there are vegetarian and gluten-free options also available. And for those who revel in the sweeter side of brunch, the dessert corner boasts the city’s longest éclair and the largest macaroon amongst other delicacies.
Now here’s a brunch where you needn’t worry about the little ones. They’ll be happily occupied in their very own themed play area, complete with a mini buffet, electronic games and supervised activities.
The vibe at the restaurant is wonderfully breezy, making it the right pick for a weekend treat. If you enjoy the bustle of live food stations whipping up a culinary storm, you can choose to dine indoors. But if you’d prefer an outdoor brunch, the restaurant’s vibrant al fresco seating with views of the Arabian Sea adds to the delight.
Being named after the Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée (A.O.C), France’s official designation for food and beverages that surpass international quality standards, does take a certain level of confidence. Fortunately A.O.C. All-Day Dining at Sofitel Dubai JBR follows through.
