BET YOU DIDN'T KNOW
In a city known for its audacious skyline, the Jumeirah Emirates Towers still manage to stand out, for the sleekness of their profile and their modern, minimalist design. The smaller of the two sister towers in the Emirates Tower complex, Jumeirah Emirates Towers Hotel is not the tallest building in Dubai, but what it lacks in height it more than makes up for in elegance and luxury.
Completed in April 2000, Jumeirah Emirates Towers Hotel is a 51-storey luxury hotel that includes 400 suites and bedrooms. An architectural masterpiece of steel and glass, the tower was constructed in the shape of an equilateral triangle, which gives it its futuristic appearance. The designers have used every centimetre of that space to create a truly luxurious hotel with incredible views over the city and the surrounding desert, especially from Vu's Restaurant on the 50th floor, which offers some of the best luxury dining in Dubai.
With world-class hotel rooms and suites, and the fantastic Vu's Restaurant, Jumeirah Emirates Towers Hotel is truly a stand-out hotel, in Dubai and in the world. Located on Sheikh Zayed Road, which is packed with luxury shops and boutiques, the hotel continues to be a favourite destination for tourists and locals alike, and has won the Best Business Hotel award ten times in a row. Its continued success and popularity prove the old adage that size isn't everything!

You'll be served the welcome course of cooling tomato and watermelon gazpacho; a creamy hazelnut-crusted goat cheese with sweet honey emulsion; marinated Devon crab with fennel and citrus jelly; and Canadian beef tartare with tangy Pommery mustard dressing. It's an impressive start, but the meal has only just begun! Next, the seafood course will be silver served, as the manager visits diners to explain some of the restaurant's preparation methods. From sevruga caviar to Gillaredau oysters on ice, this course features some of the finest seafood from around the world. Also included are an incomparable poached Maine lobster salad; Obsiblue prawns; marinated octopus; beetroot-cured organic salmon; and Langoustines "Pot au Feu". You might just forget you're dining in the desert! The next course is game and poultry, with a smoky carpaccio of cured venison served with quail eggs and black truffle vinaigrette; and a confit of Guinea fowl with an unmistakable foie gras terrine served with sweet pear and vanilla puree, macadamia and toasted brioche.
You and your guests will have to pace yourselves, as the next course consists of a hearty Mediterranean bouillabaisse, with seared red mullet, calamari and rouille, served alongside a raviolo of organic egg yolk with creamy potato, glazed baby onions, Irish Coolea cheese, and mizuna. For the main course, you'll have your choice of risotto carnaroli acquarello with spring green peas, wild mushroom tapenade and mint essence; line-caught sea bass with salsify puree, grilled artichokes and anise fish sauce; or the world-class flavours of braised Wagyu beef tenderloin with pepperberry mustard mash, pistachio-crusted asparagus, thyme and raisin jus. While you're contemplating whether you have room for dessert, an artisinal cheese cart will be presented, with the varieties of cheese being explained to guests. You'll end on a sweet note with white chocolate vanilla ice cream served with strawberry espuma; chocolate almond bitter cake with tangy blood orange cream and jelly; a fruity berry compote with light citrus yoghurt cream and pistachio crisp; as well as a selection of coffee, tea and liquors. And of course, all courses will be complimented by your choice of bubbly, top-shelf spirits, grape beverage, hops, or soft drinks. This distinctive Dubai dining experience will get your guests talking!
