We’ve been saying it for some time, but we genuinely believe that 2021 will be the summer of brunch.
As the outside temperates soar and those of us not travelling to cooler climes brace ourselves in readiness for the summer heat, Conrad Abu Dhabi at Etihad Towers offers some much-needed respite with the launch of an indoor Summer Friday Brunch.
The hotel’s trendy Friday brunch at Nahaam will offer twice the fun by incorporating lively Italian restaurant SOLE into fun. Serving authentic Italian food and drink, guests can spend a relaxing Friday afternoon at SOLE, indulge in the antipasti bar and live pasta stations. In true Italian street food style, the focaccia station allows guests to customise their bread with toppings such as smoked Provola cheese, veal pancetta, baby spinach and house-made basil pesto.
Seafood fans will enjoy the raw bar featuring poached Atlantic lobster tails, green-lipped mussels and plump prawns alongside a selection of sauces. For the meat eaters, a wide choice of smoked homemade beef sausage and pancetta-wrapped meatloaf will be complemented by a varied choice of sides and condiments.
Newly appointed Executive Chef, Carmine Pecoraro, presents a transformative twist to the laid-back brunch every Friday. Featuring an extravagant menu, guests can witness his culinary skills up close as Carmine and his team fire up a specially curated selection of Western, Indian and Asian menu delights. Diners can enjoy staple offerings such as the famous house-smoked beef brisket, herb-marinated beef carvings, butter chicken, along with a great selection of authentic Japanese sushi and sashimi. Other bountiful offerings include a raw bar, salad bar and a decadent cheese and bread cart, along with a sumptuous pastry corner that is sure to satisfy the cravings of any sweet tooth. From a delectable selection of eclairs to freshly made churros, there will most definitely be something for everyone.
The Summer Friday Brunch is priced at AED 370 (soft beverages), AED 495 (house beverages) and AED 695 (bubbles).
