Weekends in Dubai city are all about lazy morning brunches or even better we now have evening brunches to embrace. Scots American Grill, the famed steakhouse at Marriott Hotel Al Jaddaf, launched a Friday evening brunch named ‘Cuts & Kilts’.

We set out to discover this stylish and glitzy space that gives brunch the respect it deserves.From a personalized welcome note to off the menu surprises from the chef’s kitchen, they had me at the word go with all the ‘wow factor’ and unique service style they displayed. I have to add they have sincerely warm and friendly wait staff - my kids enjoyed their company. If you have a small appetite and you prefer teeny morsels then be warned, this space is not for you. Cuts & Kilts as the name suggests offers Scottish fine foods with familial flavors from America and portions that are true to American ‘larger than life’ motto. With surprise dishes and unexpected treats throughout your meal served to share, you definitely need room for more.

SignetRing Seals: USDA Prime Tenderloin (200g or 250g)  - Well seasoned, expert-cooked and served, gladdens the heart right away. Chefs surprise Scotch Eggs with meat cooked through, the outside golden and crispy and the inside hot and runny- an orb of beauty and indulgence. 

Everything we ate was just as it should be. It's hard not to have a good time when you're surrounded by an elegant Scottish dining space, stunning skyline views from the restaurant balcony and the smooth service eases things along nicely. If this brunch spot doesn’t have you smiling wide, we don’t know what will.
