Waiting for the food to arrive when you’re dining at a restaurant for the first time, is quite like waiting for a blind date. You never know exactly what you’re going to get and how it’s going to taste, but since at Sean Connolly in The Dubai Opera has the reputation of world renowned chef, Sean Connolly himself, I was rest assured that taste would be the least of my concerns.
The contemporary brasserie, in an opulent locale at the Dubai Opera, exudes a casual chic atmosphere serving seafood and steak made with the finest produce. We opted for a light lunch, tasting a few of the Chef’s specials, namely the Sashimi Salad, Soft Shell Crab Sliders and the Meatballs. For dessert we had the Hazelnut Semifreddo topped with popcorn and a downpour of caramel. What a delight!
