For the mains, guests can choose from the Banana Wrapped Steamed Sea Bream with a South East Asian sour and spicey broth; Wagyu Rib Eye Steak accompanied by grilled vegetables; or Mushroom Risotto with grilled assorted mushroom and shavings of Parmigiano Reggiano. A surprise Sweet Platter of favourite Asian desserts rounds up the delightful brunch experience.
The food menu is complemented by an extensive selection of beverages, including exotic mixology, house beverages, creative mocktails, the finest Japanese Sencha green tea and crafted coffee.
The Saturday Brunch experience marks the latest milestone in the journey of INTERSECT BY LEXUS to set new benchmarks in artisanal dining in the heart of DIFC. Originally launched in Dubai in 2015, the venue has been meticulously designed by world-renowned interior designer Masamichi Katayama and creates the perfect environment for inspiration and collaboration, a creative haven for people seeking enriched hospitality experiences.
Earlier this year, INTERSECT BY LEXUS underwent an extensive refurbishment to reflect the latest developments and innovation in Lexus design and technology: it now features curated music, an extensive gallery of unique accessories and the UAE’s multicultural ethos, as well as the latest vehicle from Lexus – the all-new Lexus NX – that showcases the bold new design language and the most technologically advanced features of the Lexus range.
