But don’t worry, we’ve got you covered with all the best options for how to ring in 2020 in the UAE.
For the most extraordinary celebrations in the city with live entertainment and front row seats of the fireworks, there’s no place quite like Pierchic. The New Year’s Eve Gala Dinner offers guests the choice between two four-course set menus, both kicking off with an amuse-bouche of Gillardeau oysters to whet the appetite. Starters include bluefin tuna tartar, Japanese hamachi and Chilean seabass, while there’s also the choice of caviar, with French blue lobster ravioli or white alba truffle risotto for the middle course. Onto the mains, think Spanish carabineros prawns or ‘grade 9’ Wagyu beef, while both menus will finish with a dessert of ‘Pierchic new year pearl’.
