We Dubai-ites know that La Petite Maison (LPM) and Zuma are jewels among our culinary offerings here in the emirate, and it turns out that some of the world's top foodies think they're pretty special too, with both placing in the top 100 restaurants in The World's 50 Best Restaurants list for 2016.
Zuma came in at 89, whilst LPM made the list for the fourth time, coming in at number 99.
The World's 50 Best Restaurants list is made up of the votes of The Diners Club World's 50 Best Restaurants Academy, a group of 1000 leaders in the international food community from writers to chefs, gastronomes and restaurateurs. The voting takes place over an 18 month period, and each member can cast seven votes, with three awarded to restaurant's outside of their region.
LPM and Zuma were the only two restaurants to make the list from the region, further cementing the UAE's culinary prowess on an international level. Bon appétit! - Maddison Glendinning
