Hg2 : The Hedonist


Wheeler’s of St James’s was first established in London in 1856, but its brand has since been revived by celeb chef Marco Pierre White, with this Dubai outpost an export of the concept from its London environs. Billing itself as the world’s oldest and finest fish eatery, the restaurant’s focus skews heavily towards fresh seafood, though there are a couple of non-fish dishes for carnivores and vegetarians.

The classic décor, all gold fixtures and ivory chairs, takes a cue from the restaurant’s original Mayfair location, and makes for an elegant setting in which to sup on dishes like shellfish bisque, sole meunière, and even beer-battered fish with triple-cooked chips, one of the restaurant’s specialties. Though the atmosphere here can tend towards the sedate, with crowds of local businessmen from the nearby financial district and a pianist playing classic tunes, the capable chefs make it a must-visit for seafood lovers.
