While we are blessed with great dining options in Dubai, there is always the excitement when a new place opens up and this one is no exception.

Introducing The Atlantic Dubai

The Melbourne import makes its debut in Dubai this month. Though this seafood hotspot needs no introduction really, we’d like to remind you the venue has been awarded a chef’s hat in The Age Good Food Guide awards.

Here are 7 reasons why we think it could be the best this year: 

You'd want to be seen at Atlantic starting now or perhaps even on New Year's Eve.

1. You’ve got the best seats in the house

You know one of the reasons (and perhaps the main one) tourists come to Dubai is for Burj Khalifa's NYE fireworks. Now imagine yourself enjoying unobstructed views of this stunning structure as well as Dubai Fountain and Dubai Opera.

2. It’s the only seafood you’ll ever eat

The venue celebrates an “ocean to plate” concept. In other words, expect seafood in its purest form.

3. The venue is top-notch

We’re talking a 6,113sq ft space with the industrial vibes. It will comfortably seat up to 200 diners between its open-plan dining room, raw Oyster Bar and terrace. Psst…we don’t need to remind you about the views you’ll get from the terrace, or do we?

4. The main affair deserves the spotlight

What you need on your plate is the olive oil confit salmon with heirloom veggies and herb jus. It would be a crime to walk out without trying this sensational dish.

5. Expect other stunning dishes on the menu

These include Scottish scallops baked in their shells with cinnamon and lemon, black bream with fennel, celeriac, leek and truffle “en papillote”. There is lots more to talk about, but why tease you? You’d rather check it out for yourself.

6. There are beverages to match 

To make this a complete (read: ultimate) dining experience, there will be grape pairings. From the current best to the rising stars, grape choices here are plenty. But wait…that’s not it. There will be a range of fine ones offered by the glass using the Coravin system. (FYI, it's a transformational technology that allows you to pour without pulling the cork and disrupting the maturation of the bottle.)

7. And if you still have that streak of doubt, you can play it safe

How? Pretty simple! Check out the venue before you make your reservation for New Year’s Eve. Head there on any night in the week, pick and choose from the à la carte menu and treat yourself to (what we'd safely call) one of the best meals in Dubai.
