La Petite Maison
Brought to the UAE by Arjun Waney, who is also responsible for popular Japanese restaurant Zuma, La Petite Maison sets a high standard among the fiercely competitive business of luxury eateries.
The atmosphere is welcoming, due to packed-together tables offering intimate but comfortable dining, and the simple furnishings match the elegant Niçoise cuisine. La Petite Maison menu highlights include salt-baked line-caught sea bass with artichokes and tomatoes, as well as the signature whole roast Label Rouge chicken with foie gras, which must be pre-ordered. You’ll have to book well in advance though, because this restaurant fills up quickly with Dubai’s expat power brokers who have helped transform it into one of the city’s most in-demand restaurants.
