BB Social Dining is a Dubai home grown restaurant and their approach to Eastern food has been my favourite in Dubai by far. Their new lunch menu delivers the perfect meal served within 45 minutes, ideal for grabbing a delicious and fresh bite with colleagues or friends. The food is fantastic, with polished but light-hearted service, in a wonderfully contemporary setting. The lunch menu can be tailored to indulge or you can keep it healthy, with their vegan and low carb options.

You can choose from three different types of Bs. A bite, a bao and a bowl. The lunch menu lets you choose 3 Bs, 2 Bs, or a combination of two Baos and a bowl.

Drift away for a weekday lunch, a well-earned break from the city, where you can reset your mind to help you get back to the grind with a refreshed perspective. Enjoy delicious dishes from their set menu including delicate raviolis Provencales, grilled hanger steak tagliata or baked aubergine with marinated goat cheese, fresh herbs and crisps. If you have room for something sweet, try the chocolate fondant, with blackberry and lavender ice cream, you’ll be ready for the rest of the day.

A Meaty lunch


Whether you are stepping out for a quick bite or having a business meeting, with the New Year comes a new business lunch menu at Gaucho.

There’s also a great dessert menu to kick start the afternoon.
