Le Nôtre

French in Kuwait City

Fantastic views of the Kuwait Towers, a discerning menu, an exclusive chocolatier and a landmark steel-and-glass building make this one of the hippest places in town. Standouts on the iPad menus include granola with crème brûlée or shakshuka in a skillet pan for breakfast, plus veal escalope or shrimp masala and coconut rice for dinner. The desserts are good, too.

The waffles and salted caramel hits the spot, as does the pain au chocolate pudding. Dress smartly. Find it next to Kuwait Towers.
