55&5th The Grill

Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates

Housed in the immaculate St Regis Saadiyat Island resort, this eatery – helmed by Malta-born chef de cuisine Kreaton Cutajar – is an all-rounder in the truest sense: from its refined Art Deco interiors, marked by dazzling ball-drop chandeliers, low-slung leather armchairs and illuminated wine installations, to its smooth jazz soundtrack, an evening spent here is an experience indeed, as are the chef’s American-inspired culinary offerings. Cocktails like its signature Arabian Snapper and a fine selection of cigars are just icing on the cake.
