Concierge.com's insider take:
The former Verre, Dubai's first celeb-chef outpost, was launched by Gordon Ramsay. When he decamped (not that he was often in Dubai) in October 2010, sous chefs Nick Alvis and Scott Price, both veterans of Ramsay's restaurants, took the helm, redecorated with local textiles, and have since garnered kudos for original dishes such as an amuse bouche of a deep-fried hen's egg—a breadcrumb-crusted globe served on a bed of greens with a vinegar and caramel sauce—and a vanilla-infused lobster served atop mango cracklings.—Susan Hack
