In the ‘Time Out Abu Dhabi’ awards the French inspired Brasserie Angélique won Best New Restaurant and Best French Restaurant.

Brasserie Angélique x 3 hats
Li Beirut x 3 hats

Scott’s x 3 hats
BiCE x 2 hats

Two chefs also won awards, Chef de Cuisine Jouni Ibrahim of Li Beirut restaurant was awarded ‘Abu Dhabi Gourmet Regional Chef of the Year 2013,’ in the Abu Dhabi Gourmet festival 2013 edition and Muhammed Ali Shiddique of Quest Restaurant received second place in the ‘Abu Dhabi Time Out Young Chef of the Year 2013.’


In the Russian Standard and MMI Bar Academy Platinum Fusion competition 2013, Gatis Ozols from Ray’s Bar won Best Bartender and both Ray’s Bar and Quest restaurant were awarded second place.


Doris Greif, General Manager, Jumeirah at Etihad Towers, said: “We are all so proud of our culinary, food and beverage teams. From the outset it was always envisaged that Jumeirah at Etihad Towers would not only be a centre for culinary celebration in Abu Dhabi, but a visionary and exciting gourmet capital for the whole region. It is very humbling that the general public and aficionados of the epicurean world have recognised us in this way, and we appreciate and respect the responsibilities that come with these accolades. We hope those outside of Abu Dhabi will visit for a gourmet getaway to taste and judge for themselves if our assertion of ‘Gourmet Capital within the Capital’ is justified.”
