101 Restaurant Review: Authentic tapas ranging from chilled gazpacho and anchovies in olive oil to manchego cheese croquettes are served at this one-of-a-kind venue with views of the Dubai skyline. The à la carte Mediterranean-inspired menu offers a selection of fresh salads, including an artichoke version. Seared scallops with leeks and hazelnuts a la plancha and the savory marinated beef chuck with lentils prepared in the Josper charcoal barbecue stand out as signature dishes. For something on the sweeter side, the Granny Smith apple and cucumber minestrone with a mint and coconut lime sorbet proves to be a refreshing palate cleanser. Wines by the glass include New Zealand’s Dog Point Sauvignon Blanc and a Domaine Drouhin Bourgogne Pinot Noir. Champagne is also available by the glass and bottle. Sundown visits are a must at 101, as the terrace provides the perfect atmosphere for the restaurant’s “mocktails” and cocktails. The after-dinner crowd can enjoy a variety of snacks and drinks as the menu is served until 10:30 p.m. while the DJ spins eclectic upbeat music. Warm lighting and a chic interior make this a romantic destination, too, for those looking for a more intimate evening.
