Cuisine: Italian American
What we know so far: The iconic (and sort of infamous) New York Italian restaurant is coming to Dubai next year.

Picking up an impressive reputation in the US with celebs and the public alike since its initial launch, CARBONE has hosted everyone from Rihanna to Kim Kardashian, Justin Bieber and Drake over the years.

Soon it will aim to impress Dubai diners with the same flair, showcasing tuxedo-clad waiters and a dining room decorated in the style of 1950s New York City. Although an official opening date has not been set for the restaurant, it is expected to open its doors in early 2025.

Where: J1 Beach, La Mer
Cuisine: Asian-Polynesian
What we know so far:
Polynesian isn’t a cuisine you come across often in Dubai, so this opening has us very excited. Kaimana, meaning ‘spirit of the ocean’ in Polynesian culture, will offer a dining experience inspired by Asian-Polynesian flavours. Think flame-broiled short ribs served with fragrant furikake rice and tropical salmon salad, featuring pacific salmon, avocado, tomatoes, scallions and tangerine dressing. The destination will have its own private pool and beach, too.

La Baia

Hailing from Manhattan, La Baia will be an upmarket Italian restaurant inspired by the Amalfi Coast and its charming seaside towns. Its second global location, we’re told it will be an understated yet elegant space, with both indoor and al fresco dining, as well as its own beach area. Featuring panoramic sea views in addition to sunbeds for days by the beach, yet another beach-club-esque dining destination in Dubai.
