The Hide-A Great Place To Meat

The Hide is Dubai’s first Meatery, it opened in September last year. I was invited to the launch party of The Hide last week. 

The Hide is an American Steakhouse, it is located at Al Qasr, Madinat Jumeirah. It is fronted by popular British Chef Nick Cuadrado.

The ambience is modern yet rustic. It has a friendly and welcoming American vibe.  It will remind you of the cool meateries in cities like New York and Los Angeles. The Hide is very spacious with indoor and outdoor seating. The leather seating and dim lighting gives it a perfect look. 

The bar is trendy and chic with hip and friendly bartenders. The Hide is the only restaurant in Dubai to offer 54 grape beverages by the glass, by far the largest selection in the city.  Their beverage menu has an impressive list of  cocktails, mocktails and other spirits.

I took along my friend Gillian(she is a huge steak lover) for the launch party. By the time we reached the place, the party was rocking with beautiful people and great music. 

After having a glass of Prosecco, we headed over to the outside seating area where other bloggers were seated. 

It was an interactive event, showcasing exactly what The Hide was all about. Some of the things that took place that evening:

Steak & wine pairing station 

Oyster shucking station 

Butchery demo

Steak tartare station 

Blind wine tasting on the terrace 

Live entertainment 

There were other food stations as well. 

I got to try two of their cocktails. One was Bloody Mary and the other one was Jack Daniels based cocktail. I didn’t like the Bloody Mary, found it too sour. But the other Jack Daniels based cocktail was awesome.

We started off with freshly baked bread. It was made right in front of us. It tasted fresh and soft. I also had a salad, Artichoke & spinach dip and Tomato & mushroom bruschetta. 

My blogger friends had the Oxtail soup, Mini Steak tartare bites, Prosciutto , Californian yellowtail and other meats. They loved the meat, especially the dry aged beef. 

I need to make a special mention of the beef in The Hide. It is specially  brought in from the mountains of Spain  and they dry age the beef by hanging it to dry for 2 to 3 weeks. 

The Hide is one of the best steakhouse to experience the whole cuts of meat and steaks. They have a wide range of meats to satisfy any hardcore carnivore. The Hide has an extremely meaty menu. All your meaty expectations are me(a)t here. 

We were also offered an excellent variety of desserts. We liked all the desserts, here are some of my favorites- Chocolate Truffles , Cheesecake Soufflé, Chocolate Mousse, Apple Crumble and Campfire S’mores Sundae. 

We were offered three kinds of truffle- White chocolate, Milk chocolate and Dark Chocolate. The Milk chocolate truffle was the best chocolate truffle I ever had. 

The Hide is a must-visit place for all meat lovers. Their Friday Meatopia Brunch  is worth trying for the total meat experience. The Hide is more than a regular steakhouse. It is Dubai’s answer to the ultimate Meatery.
