Must-Try: The Levant Brunch at Boulevard Kitchen, Manzil Hotel

One of our favourite boutique boltholes – the Manzil Hotel in Downtown Dubai – transforms into a Levant dream on Fridays. Introducing the Levant Brunch at Boulevard Kitchen…

There are a lot of brunches in Dubai. From Snazzy showstoppers and huge buffets to low key affairs and family-friendly themes… There’s plenty to choose from. And The Huntr appreciates a niche brunch – one that’s not afraid to call it like it is and do one thing really well instead of dozens averagely. The Levant Brunch at Boulevard Kitchen is a great niche brunch. Small, chic, reasonably priced and offers some great nosh…

For 295 AED per person inclusive of house beverages (195 AED for the non-alcoholic package), you can enjoy a sumptuous lunch buffet featuring Arabic influenced dishes and drinks between 1 and 4 pm. Think juicy grilled meats, freshly baked bread, all of the favourite Arabic salads and dips, some Indian dishes, a great continental cheese and cold cuts selection, and some indulgent sweet treats.

What we love about this brunch is that it’s family-friendly (there’s a special kids play area too) and has a really relaxed vibe. Plus: Those familiar with Manzil Hotel will surely know that one of the city’s best courtyards is housed within its walls. This architectural marvel provides magical AC-vibes even in the midday sun (The Huntr visited in early May and didn’t break even so much as a bead of sweat at 2 pm out there) and it is here that brunchers can enjoy a complimentary ‘hubbly-bubbly’ shisha pipe to round off the Levant experience.

The Huntr recommends booking The Levant Brunch at Boulevard Kitchen for a small group of close friends. You can enjoy a catch up over some great food and drinks and afterwards relax with shisha in the unbelievably beautiful courtyard. The perfect Friday, no?
