Restaurant Street XO

A project from Spanish chef Dabiz Muñoz who earned the title of the world’s best chef from The Best Chef Awards for three years in a row. Despite its location (Street XO is at the One & Only One Za’abeel hotel), the atmosphere is informal and the menu references street food. That said, the street food here is cooked using haute cuisine techniques.
Here’s a piece of advice: after studying the interior design (the designers were inspired by punk rock aesthetics mixed with graffiti and neon), find a seat near the open kitchen to hear the local cooks talk passionately about the dishes they make. Muñoz himself says that he likes working in Dubai, which he considers one of the most dynamic gastro clusters. He characterizes the cuisine of his new project as avantgarde and bold. Plus, Street XO has a cocktail menu that’s impressive in its diversity and can improve any evening.
