For Forrest Gump’s mum, life is like a box of chocolates, with no clue as to what comes next. But thank God some things in life are predictable. Like a fancy evening out in town. It’s always a pleasure to woo the city in your fanciest gear. And eating out can almost never go wrong. Unless you are somewhere in the Far East and have decided to experiment on live beetles.
MIRABEL in the Fotouh Al Khair Mall is one such predictably stylish assurance. Art deco furnishings in muted reds and blues, candlelit tables and fresh lilies transport you into a world of cozy comfort. Stylishly so. The friendly waiters almost float noiselessly around, dressed in smart attires. While you are basking in a bevy of complimentary stares, indulge in gourmet sandwiches, salads and mouth-watering European main courses. With today’s Groupon relish a starter and a main course of your choice for 50 AED instead of 133 AED. This could easily be Abu Dhabi’s answer to New York’s upper east side or London’s la di da Chelsea. Make your reservations. MIRABEL is definitely a reason enough to do a Meryl Streep in Devil wears Prada, minus the attitude.
