The Lion

British in Downtown Dubai

Nick and Scott of Folly fame have taken over the (former) Black Lion and updated the name, the decor (a bit) and, most importantly, the grub. The classics are here, like fish and chips, rib eye steak and chicken curry, all treated to a dab of culinary masterfulness. The late-night menu of toasties (Dhs42) is a weekend life saver for some.
