Food and drink
At Nobu it's almost all Japanese and it's almost all absolutely excellent.
Go for the local catch, Hammour, served with dried miso and garlic chips. Awesome.
Dimly lit and intimate, this isn't somewhere to get rowdy. There are a merry mix of people, including tourists, locals and expats, but generally there's a smarter dress code (ie, no flipflops).
Friendly and attentive. Let them guide you through the menu.
Nobu is found in the aquatic-themed depths of the vast Atlantis hotel on the tip of the Palm. It's a rather tacky location, but you'll forget any hint of this once you're sat inside.
Very expensive. Perhaps even the most expensive of the Nobus, which are notoriously pricey. Expect a meal for two, without drinks, to approach 900-1000 dirhams. There's also a Friday brunch, noon-3.30pm, for 490 dirhams.
