Dubai's best bits: Lunch

30 Jun 2017 • by Mary Pratt

INTERSECT BY LEXUS

The team behind newly opened INTERSECT BY LEXUS would like this to be a place “for intellectuals and creative minds from around the country to intersect, network and be inspired”. The clientele is discreet, sophisticated and cultured; a blend of elite sheikhs, business execs, and successful entrepreneurs.

General manager Benjamin Nicholas explains that the space has already hosted events such as ‘The Future of Publishing in the UAE’, a poetry night, and a photography workshop. A non-smoking venue with great background tunes, it’s perfect for a coffee, quick lunch, or a relaxed-yetsophisticated dinner. Running the kitchen is executive chef Tomas Reger, the brains behind ‘Dubai’s Secret Supper Club’ and ‘Bloomie’s Kitchen’. At INTERSECT, he brings his ‘feel good food’ concept to life. The freshest ingredients are used in unconventional dishes such as beet and barley risotto and Chilean sea bass with yuzu-glazed turnips.
