Fish Alert! New (and yummy) fish restaurant in town

Are you a fish lover, just like me?

If so, book a table at the newly open THE FISH HOUSE at Intercontinental Festival City. You will you enjoy a delicious culinary experience, while being surrounded by some impressive décor pieces.

As expats know, over the last century fishing and pearl diving have been at the heart of Emirati life. The Gulf is home of a variety of fish and sea treasures: The Fish House is the proudly recipient of this daily bounty. At dawn the chefs scour local markets carefully choosing the freshest catches of the day from experienced and skilled fishermen.

The Fish House is built on the simple premise of promising the best range of fish prepared however you like it. Unconstrained by tradition, the chefs will take fresh produce, prepare and cook it just the way you like; whether it is a nostalgic style that reminds you of your childhood days or the latest fusion concept.

A tip: simply order the catch of the day, you will not be disappointed!

How to be a Parisian in Dubai

This Week We Love

The truth is everyone admires les Parisiennes: they are naturally chic and desirable, they admit to being snobs, unpredictable but not unreliable, bossy and opinionated yet tender and romantic.

They always know how to be mysterious and stylish, they will tell you the right way to approach people at the gym, they will share with you the best addresses in town, for where to go at the end of the night, for a birthday, for a smart date, for vintage findings and much more.

Here is where to find that Parisian allure in Dubai (well it’s also my absolute favorite spot in town):


Launched in 2012 by Emma Sawko (a true Parisian), Comptoir 102 has been acclaimed one of the best concept stores in the city by international travel guides and fashion magazines. The space has been conceived as a home – with its kitchen, lounge, garden and terrace combing fashion, design, jewellery, beauty and organic café. This amazing store, nestled in the heart of old Jumeirah, between sea and palm trees, is a little sanctuary away from the malls.
