Social Dining Thursday!
Hello everyone, we hope you have a wonderful start into the week again! Did you experience anything new lately? We had such an amazing time and one of the best nights in a long time, at the Bonnington Hotel recently. Where exactly, you ask – The Cavendish Restaurant, on the stunning outdoor terrace, to be specific.
Since the addition of the terrace the place has become the al fresco dining destination, on this side of the town. Surrounded by an elegant wooden fence, olive trees and a beautiful water feature in the centre makes you feel like you are being invited to an exquisite home dinner party. The bar at the entrance of the restaurant and the second bar outside on the terrace invite guests to socialize and to enjoy unique cocktails and mocktails after one sipped a couple of wonderful welcome drinks prepared by Venkadesh, the Bar Manager and his team.
Last Thursday’s event was called: Social Dining Thursday. The social dining concept starts at 7:30 pm and lasts until 11:00 pm. The concept is straight forward, yet unique: enjoy an exquisite time with friends and connect with others while enjoying sharing style platters, a wonderful BBQ and freshly grilled meat cuts, a huge salad buffet and delicious desserts served to the table, for only 299 AED per person. What a deal!
Good food, good friends, good times, is the Thursday nights’ concept slogan, and it is not hard to tell why, once you have been part of it. The venue itself, the delicious European BBQ and the attentive service, replace the outdated idea of Friday brunches around town and make ‘Social Dining Thursday‘ the new, to – be followed trend in Dubai.
Launched for the first time last Thursday, the terrace as well as the restaurant were chocker blocker full. Ladies and gentlemen dress up for a night in style and we had the chance to take some pictures for you while enjoying pork and none – pork cold cuts to share, lard and freshly baked bread.
Time passes so quickly when you are enjoying yourself. We nearly forgot to check out the salad buffet and the wonderful BBQ station while socializing with other diners, however the attentive service staff reminded us about the food, and we were thankful for every single bite.
The chefs and the service staff took great care of us, served drinks none stop and even suggested us their favourites from the buffet. We had Shawarma, chicken breast, burgers, oven potatoes with cream and roasted vegetable, Greek salads, corn on the cob and even shared a dessert in the end. Yes, we enjoyed ourselves, and yes, we ate a lot. When the food is that delicious, the service is so friendly, and the weather finally invites you to relax outdoors again however, it is really hard to stop munching and drunching while chatting with friends.
Good food, good friends and a great time, is how we would sum up our experience at the Cavendish Social Dining Thursday last week. Missed t? Keep calm and call them up for this week, as it had only launched last Thursday and the event will take place on a weekly bases from now on. Friday brunches were yesterday, Social Dining Thursday is where you’ve got to be these days!
Keep it social,
