Hg2 : The Hedonist


In a place where restaurants open at an alarming rate, it’s rare to find one that keeps locals coming back for more. Teatro – housed in a hotel that sits among Sheikh Zayed Road’s proliferation of fast food joints – is one such gem, necessitating a booking days in advance at the weekend. In comparison to its neon-lit neighbours, it’s a theatrically-themed, eclectic space with heavy drapes, deep banquettes and a glass-walled wine cellar. The main reason for the place’s enduring popularity with chattering groups of young expats though is the fact it neatly avoids the ‘what shall we have tonight?’ dilemma by cooking a cross-continental offering. This jack-of-all trades approach often proves to be a risky strategy, but here it’s all cooked with an assured hand, so the sushi, Chinese, Indian and Italian are all equally impressive.
