This rustic wooden shack set on a wooden walkway brings to mind a Gulf of Mexico fishing pier—though it lacks the fishermen snoozing in deck chairs as their lines bob in the water. Instead, Pierchic is one of the most romantic settings in the emirate. The ultracontemporary decor complements silver-finished timbers, and glass walls allow diners to sit in air-conditioned comfort while enjoying views of the Burj Al-Arab and Madinat complex. Or, if you prefer, sit on the deck and catch the breeze coming off the ocean. The menu concentrates on seafood and can be accompanied by a fine wine. This is a wonderful place for a leisurely lunch or long dinner—take your pick.

Recently (late April, '14) was a most honoured participant at a particularly joyous business dinner at Dubai's Pierchic. Quite festive, as one Dubai-based colleague was celebrating the imminent and long-cherished transfer to my (our) home of Singapore. Well done, sir, to you and your expectant wife. (Will add, after all of two initial business trips to Dubai within the past ~ six months, have been struck by the number of Dubai-based colleagues
and other professionals desirous of transfer to our locale of SIN.) [Concerning Dubai lodging, my second corporate stay at Emirates Towers was 'Groundhog Day' in the best possible way: my Fodor's profile page review of her remains true. Same sublime Singapore Airlines J-Class service into DXB, followed by Emirates business class working flight to London for more meetings.] Pierchic cuisine, left that to my Dubai-based colleagues and no complaints. Most attentive and personal service, thanks again to the Pierchic frequenting Dubai-based colleagues. Highly recommend Pierchic for business - and most especially, for romantic - Dubai dining. (Sadly, the loved one was unable to coordinate her flying/work schedule for this DXB business stay, but come the next scheduled Dubai business visit in Nov/Dec, suspect she will be in attendance.) [Do note that Pierchic is scheduled to undergo a bit of a renovation from ~ 1 June - 1 September, '14.] A most joyous business/celebratory evening. Savour your Pierchic dining times.
