Five reasons to spend the festive season at Oak Room

DSCVR Partnership: The Abu Dhabi EDITIONs steakhouse will infuse the festivities with its signature rock ‘n’ roll flair.

Our partiality for Oak Room is no secret. For the uninitiated, acclaimed chef Tom Aikens is behind this renowned restaurant at The Abu Dhabi EDITION, which features photos of rock bands on the walls and British culinary classics on the menu. Now, Oak Room is hosting guests over the holiday season, complete with a festive menu and year-end celebrations. Here are five offerings to look forward to.

Festive Menu

Served Monday to Saturday throughout the month of December, a delightfully curated set menu features the very best cuts and seasonal ingredients including English Crab with Tomato Tart, Pickle Cucumber and Basil Mayonnaise for starters and Wagyu Beef and Turkey, Wagyu Tenderloin, Turkey Leg Roulade for the main event. And because Christmas dinner would be incomplete without Mince Pie for dessert, the three-course menu wraps up on a sweet note, accented by free-flowing beverages. Available by reservation only for a minimum of four guests, the festive menu is served from 6:30pm to 11:30pm. Prices start at AED 295, inclusive of soft drinks.

Christmas Eve

Uncomplicated in approach, a seated menu of signature British dishes, paired with a robust beverage selection – think Espresso Martinis and Christmas Cognac – awaits at a festive brunch from 6:30pm to 11:30pm. Start with the signature Oak Room Sourdough and Marmite butter before indulging in a range of shared starters. A British cheese selection and array of Port pairings completes this indulgent experience. The brunch starts at AED 365, inclusive of soft drinks. À la carte options will also be available.

Christmas Day

An elevated Oak Room Brunch with a touch of festive flair will be served from 12.30pm to 5pm on Christmas Day, treating diners to a seated menu of signature British dishes made using the finest quality seasonal produce. Begin with signature Oak Room Sourdough and Marmite butter before tucking into starters like Foie Gras Torchon, Raspberry Coulis, Pears and Brioche plus a choice of roasted mains such as Roast Beef Sirloin, Lamb Pie, and Turkey served with all the trimmings. Next up is a decadent trolley selection of British Cheese and a range of six Ports. Finish with dessert, including mince pies and flambéed Christmas Pudding served to share. The brunch starts at AED 365, inclusive of soft drinks.
