Fodor's Expert Review Social by Heinz Beck
$$$$ Jumeirah Beach Italian
With a German chef serving Italian cuisine at this American hotel in Dubai, Social has managed to seamlessly blend together elements of multiple cultures. Heinz Beck, head chef at Rome's Michelin three-star restaurant La Pergola, entered the Dubai scene in 2014, and often drops by Social for a visit. His stamp is obvious in the elegant and complex Italian cuisine, and the luxurious ambience. The staff is highly attentive, and each dish is delicately presented in the quiet atmosphere. Go with an empty belly—there are often in-between courses that you will receive without ordering. Alcohol served.
