Wine Dinner at Circo - Intercontinental Hotel, Abu Dhabi
I have often talked about wine dinners as a necessary evening for top restaurants because it allows the chef to step outside of the shackles of a menu and create, while also allowing the restaurant to showcase its wine. Wine dinners are not optional in F&B - they are integral.
I like that the evening starts at the bar. Restaurants that are not maximising the potential of their bar are missing an effortless way to enhance the guest's overall experience. Also, guests mingle and start chatting. Connections and relationships are forged, long before we sit down to dinner. It is a terrific leveller.
