Em Sherif Café

Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates

Opened in May 2022, Em Sherif Café’s Abu Dhabi outpost is the youngest sibling of lauded chef Mireille Hayek’s sprawling international restaurant empire. Taking a relaxed-yet-refined approach to cooking, plates here are uncomplicated and hearty, championing the best Levantine cuisine has to offer. Its menu spans a wide gamut of dishes, including cold and hot meze. Standouts are its silken hummus and soujouk (beef sausages) with shakshuka. Salads are a similarly strong suit, led by the Middle Eastern classic, tabbouleh, while from the oven, the kafta, kissed by fire and drizzled in tahini, is an essential order for any group. Open from noon until late, Em Sherif Café is without doubt one of the finest Lebanese restaurants in Abu Dhabi.
