Top five new lunches to try in Dubai


At.mosphere

Quote:
Sep 19, 2011

The world’s highest restaurant located at Burj Khalifa has introduced the High Lunch, offered both at the At.mosphere Grill and the At.mosphere Lounge.

Executive chef Dwayne Cheer said: “We have put together an innovative and delectable menu, created to suit the needs of business executives. The High Lunch at At.mosphere is about delicious food keeping in mind guests time constraints and is perfect for those who want to take a refreshing break from routine office lunches or give their business schedule a new twist.”

The ‘High Lunch’ at the At.mosphere Grill is served from 12.30 to 2:30pm and is priced at AED 200 per person for a two-course meal and AED 300 per person for a three-course meal. The ‘High Lunch’ at the At.mosphere Lounge, also served from 12 to 4pm, is priced at AED 120 per person.

Hi all.

Hi Paris.

There aren't many shots of the restaurants these days. I guess people don't want to bother others with photos. Too bad really as the fit and finish in all of them is outstanding.


Ray.

To go up there i assume that they got permission... amazing and scary at the same time.

And also great photos of Burj Khalifa and especially those from At.mosphere restaurant; which are great.

Does anyone have a way to capture the vid and either post or put it up on youtube - I want it for my collection.

I wonder what Emaars position is on people sitting on the beacons above the top platform ? I doubt they were designed for this. Obviously they are strong enough, and the fasteners connecting the beacon to the frame are big enough, to carry the extra load - but I bet the people that engineered them gasp when they see these vids. It seems to be a growing trend.
Myself, I would put a stop to it.

Hi Desert.

The light and colors in those shots are friggin awesome man - great stuff !
