JW Steakhouse up there with the best in Abu Dhabi - Marriott Downtown Abu Dhabi
Having tried their gin trolley before, I have a glass of champagne to get the evening started. Champagne really is a versatile drink and one can get away having it with most dishes. As I have another sip of bubbly, Frank Wilson's "Do I love you?" plays. The music, 60s-70s soul/funk strikes a chord with me. Music is very difficult in a steakhouse, with a tendency to over-rely on jazz. The music chosen here reflects an identity that sets JW apart from the rest - something fresh in Abu Dhabi.
After the unfolding drama of the potato and the leek, it is time for the main course - the Master Kobe MB9. I like the fact that they do a 150g cut, albeit a tenderloin, which allows guests to have a cut that on par offers of the highest marbling at a steakhouse in Abu Dhabi. Price wise, it comes in at half the price of the 300g, so all round a great inclusion on the menu.
