If you’re an ardent follower of WhereMyFoodAt’s reviews, you would’ve possibly noticed by now that we aren’t too keen on buffets and theme nights. Unless of course, something excites the inner epicurean within us. We’ve been devoted enthusiasts of the restaurants nestled at Al Habtoor City and W Hotel in particular, since it’s one of the most vibrant, modernistic and chic hotels we’ve been to in a while (their lobby is breathtakingly spectacular). A couple of weeks ago we happened to dine at Level Seven – a warm, slightly vintage and earthy toned restaurant that hosts some of the most happening and lively theme nights in the city.
Sea Me at Level Seven:
The brand new seafood night at Level Seven of the W Hotel is one of the most raved theme nights in the hotel. And after our visit, we could see why. The Sea Me seafood night runs every Wednesday and lets you choose from a vast selection of the freshest seafood cooked to your taste.
As soon as you walk in, you can’t help but notice the beautifully placed ceviche station in the form of a conveyor belt. Make sure to try their oysters as well that taste delectable with a hint of mignonette sauce. A little further ahead lies the salad station with an assortments of beautifully flavored salads perfectly lined in chillers and served in small portions (just so you could try everything!). We loved the Lobster Station in particular where the chef whipped up an amazingly fresh and palatable lobster salad. As much as we loved the components incorporated in the salad, we felt the salad could do with a bit more lobster. Did we forget to mention that the presentation was spot on?
Our favorite station had to be the section where all the hot dishes were prepared. We loved how perfectly cooked the prawns and scallops were, so much so that we had to go for seconds (and thirds). There’s no better feeling than walking up to a display of the freshest catch laid out for you as you make the painstakingly difficult decision of deciding what to order. If you’re wise like us, don’t be afraid to try out everything! Because honestly, when it comes to theme nights like these, your diet should be taking a backseat.
If we had to give one criticism, it would be for the spread of desserts. Although we loved the ice cream selection, we felt the dessert spread could do with a lot more additions.
All in all, for the quality of seafood used, for the variety of dishes offered, for its great value and for the outstanding service provided by the team at Level Seven, we’d highly recommend you to try out Sea Me nights and let us know what you think 🙂
