Make most of the cooler months in Dubai by opting to dine alfresco at Dusty’s open terrace, the largest in DIFC. Located in the heart of DIFC, the venue offers guests breakfast, lunch, dinner and everything in between, in a warm and relaxed setting.
I had heard about Dusty’s , so earlier this month had the chance of being there at a breakfast. Tucked in DIFC Al Fattan Currency House, best suited for business breakfast & lunch. But equally ideal for families and group meetings. Like me if someone is looking for good ambiance + dining , they have outdoor terrace arrangement which is so inviting for a best alfresco dining experience. Dusty’s interior is done with amazing Art work done by Lebanon born Palestinian artist Jeffar Khaldi. Interesting collage art along with wooden interior setting makes a calm atmosphere. Away from the much hustle and bustle a must visit place to hang around .
Their breakfast has a good variety in menu. Granola, fresh fruits , steak ,scrambled eggs, Eggs benedict, juices, teas, Dusty’s special business breakfast platter etc Staff is very courteous.
A wonderful addition to the food scene at DIFC, Dusty’s is a true reflection of the owner
himself– Dusty Tourani. With menu items that are inspired by his travels from around the
world, Dusty’s offers the perfect dining environment for a relaxed and laid backfun time
with colleagues, friends and families. We wanted to create a restaurant that would act as a retreat, where people can socialise,mingle and engage in a fun, personal and unique experience, said Dusty Tourani, owner ofDusty’s Dubai.To further enhance our customers’
dining experience, we have set-up abeautiful outdoor terrace that gives a new meaning to alfresco dining. The terrace acts like a perfect getaway during work hours where people can soak up the sun and enjoy a refreshing lunch or breakfast, and at night it has a more up-beat and festive feel to it,he added.Situated in a prime location, the terrace offers fantastic views of the neighbouring DIFC area and is surrounded by lush palm trees and water features that add a natural feel to the venue. Open all day, the terrace can be booked for private gatherings and can accommodate up to 80 persons sitting and 200 standing. The terrace is ideal for a break from the hustle and bustle of work life and at the same time can also act like an ideal place for meetings meant for inspirational and creative thinking.
Inspired by journeys from all over the world, Dusty has brought all that experience into the heart of the DIFC to create a totally unique experience around the home cooked food
concept. There is a wide selection of breakfast offerings from granolas and fruit salads to
toasted bagels and Dusty’s signature breakfast including a fillet steak, truffle eggs and
roasted tomatoes. Lunch ranges from sandwiches, pastas and salads to a set Business Lunch menu for those in a hurry. All main courses are served with your choice of a salad, herb crushed potatoes or house fries with Parmesan. The Dinner menu is more eloquent with dishes ranging from Foie Gras, Grilled Lobster and Dusty’s Signature Red Chicken and bar snacks keeping it fun and gourmet with Lobster Tacos, Grilled Squid,crostini’s and favourites like the Black Cod and Rock Shrimp.
While the Dubai weather is favourable, foodies from all over the region are welcome to enjoy their favourite menu selections in an outdoor setting, whether just for drinks,
breakfast, lunch or dinner, Dusty’s has something to offer everyone in the perfect laid -back setting.
