Yes, 2022 is already drawing to a close and with everything that has unfolded over the year, can gastronomy and entertainment be left behind? We’ve tried NFT meals, embraced cloud cooking, indulged in clean eating, and more. But now we want meals that increase the experience quotient of dining at the restaurant. We speak to experts from the region who share their predictions for 2023.

Premium experiences will be key

“With a premium experience comes the expectation of premium dining for guests. Venues need to think about that. I believe that in 2023 many places will focus on this element,” said Jacques Geagea, Director of Operations (Nightlife Division), DREAM Dubai, Address Beach Resort, JBR. Jacques added, “It’s important to complement your meal with great entertainment. If done correctly, this gives the customer an all-round extraordinary experience. Especially as guests plan a night out knowing there will be entertainment involved.”

DREAM brings magic and fantasy to life with spectacular 3D visual mapping, immersive performances and acrobatic dancers alongside exquisite Mediterranean cuisine and bespoke beverages.

The right mix

“In 2023, we need to turn off the white noise and focus on the fundamentals of a great dining experience. Are you wondering why are we dating? For food? The experience? So that the family can have fun together and make memories? From there, the puzzle can form to fit what you’re looking for outside of the restaurant,” said Andrea Strim, general manager, Grand Millennium Business Bay.

Appeal to refined palates

“With the arrival of many talents and concepts from different parts of the world to the country, people’s palates are becoming more demanding and demanding,” said Lynn Lin, co-owner of Electric Pawn Shop, a counter-culture Asian-Mediterranean restaurant, The H Dubai Hotel. She added that in terms of cuisine, there is an ever-growing trend towards Asian-inspired places that focus on less commercialized cuisines such as Thai, Indonesian, Korean, etc.

Art and creativity in the foreground

“A major factor that will influence the development of the entertainment industry over the next year is that people in Dubai want to see even more projects in the field of arts and creativity. We realized this by collecting feedback. For all the beauty of Dubai, there is still not enough intellectually and artistically affluent leisure. And that’s going to be exactly the direction it’s going to take,” said Yulia Maksimovich, CEO of Host Theatre, a brand specializing in designing theatrical outings, suite parties and bespoke theatrical events.

Yulia added: “Art spaces and galleries (which guests have already visited post-pandemic) need to find new ways to attract old audiences, which means they will create unusual experiments and enter into collaborations with other market players.”
