How good is this 1920s Chicago–inspired steakhouse at Four Seasons Abu Dhabi? We don't have enough space to tell you. American chef Marshall Roth sources his meat from the Temple Grandin–designed Creekstone Farms in Kansas (USA); when paired with his from-scratch béchamel-creamed spinach, you have a perfectly executed classic combination.

Don't even consider skipping the 99% lump crab cake as a starter – the best crab cake we've ever had – or the distinctly understated cherry pie à la mode, an insanely good pot pie stuffed with candied and tart cherries, as a finisher. The bar is also worth a multi-hour liver workout. You're welcome.
