Hg2 : The Hedonist


It’s advisable to book ahead at this Dubai outpost of the nascent chain set up by Michelin-starred chef Marco Pierre White and Italian jockey and sometime Dubai-dweller Frankie Dettori. At weekends it can be difficult to even get standing space at the bar, let alone an impromptu dinner at one of its pleasantly shadowy tables. There’s a whiff of the gentlemen’s club about the décor, which is all walnut wood and cappuccino walls, but on your way to the pissoir check out the slightly troubling framed snap of giant Marco with his hand rammed into little Frankie’s pants. If that doesn’t put you off your food, you’ll find a menu packed with the classics (think pizza, pasta, risotto) alongside more innovative takes on the Italian culinary lexicon and a well-thought out and reasonably-priced wine selection.
