So it turns out that there is a really good reason that I don’t drink during the week. I am too old and my hangovers are way too bad. That said, I had such a great night at the Firebird Diner that I only marginally care how rough I feel right now!
Firebird Diner is the American style offering from the Four Seasons at DIFC. It’s a concept done to death in my mind and most fall way short of the mark. Not so much this place. It’s decor is bright and clean, and well, American Diner style. I don’t know what else to say really!

(P.S. Whilst googling how to spell this venue’s name, I have discovered there is one now in the Marina too. I wonder if they have the same offers? I will leave that for you to work out because the marina is faaaaaaar!)
I’ve got to work out how to take better menu pictures! Also, there is steak/salmon too.
The Tuesday Ladies Night offer still remains the same. Continue reading
