Winter in Dubai is just around the corner and the brunch season has already started. It's been ages since I last experienced a Friday brunch and I've also never had the chance to catch up with Tonnee, a friend from high school, who's been here in Dubai for almost a year already; so when an invitation for a Friday brunch came my way, I immediately said yes and tagged my friend along.

Make it a feast for all the senses and spoil your taste buds to an ultimate Saturday Brunch at The Restaurant at Address Boulevard. Sophisticatedly set in the heart of Downtown Dubai, Boulevard Chic Brunch brings the world on a plate straight to you.
Tonnee and I were privileged to grace the launch of the Boulevard Chic Brunch at The Restaurant in Address Boulevard last weekend. I felt a luxurious yet relaxed vibe at The Restaurant the moment we stepped in.
Mimicking a huge Parisian house with luxurious rooms, it's concept is the first of its kind, at least based from the different hotel restaurants that I've been to.
Guests can conveniently enjoy a nook at any of their rooms—a kitchen, living room, study room, dining room, lounge, dressing room, library, music room and games room.
There's also 'room' for kids with some activities to keep them entertained, an outdoor seating that's perfect when the weather cools down, plus a secret private dining room which is quite intriguing.
The brunch serves a sumptuous array of freshly baked bread, a selection of cheese, beautifully crafted desserts, and live cooking stations all served buffet-style.
Culinary delights from the Mediterranean to the Middle Eastern and Asian cuisines also complete the brunch menu and is served family-style straight to your tables—all these combined with perfectly concocted beverages and an upbeat music by the resident DJ.
We were offered with some welcome drinks when we're settled on our table, and were served with Vegetable Crudité with hummus and guacamole, plus a platter of Artisan Bread soon after. Wines and cocktails are also available.
We also helped ourselves with some Fresh Oysters with Bloody Mary (finally got the courage to try oysters, but I'm really not a fan) and Hamagi Nigiri with Sturia Caviar.
We were also served with family style casserole on the table—Acquerello Risotto with Seasonal Mushrooms, Green Asparagus, and Truffle Essence. The aroma of the truffle filled the air when the casserole was served. The dish was delicious I was very near to asking another serving! Haha!
Their grilled selection had a nice variety—from Korean bbq lamb chops and Shawarma marinated baby chicken, to Spanish octopus with chimichurri and seasonal veggies. We tried the lamb chops and chicken, and both were equally satisfying.
I wasn't meaning to try some desserts but they were just so tempting! Paired them with some caffe latte to end our brunch.
A sweet ending to our brunch yesterday at the Boulevard Chic Brunch in @adhboulevard 👌🏼 • More on my stories. Watch them before they disappear!

I personally loved the Boulevard Chic Brunch. The menu may not be as extensive but the dishes and drinks were well crafted and utterly delicious. I also specifically loved the stylish yet relaxed feel of the whole setup. I reckon it would be a good choice for some splurging on a special occasion. Can't wait to go back here with Mark!
