When my friend offered to have lunch at Intersect by Lexus, my first thoughts were not really positive. I have imagined a car showroom, with furniture alike car seats with streamlined tables, noisy music and cigarette smoke. But this restaurant appeared in an opposite way. Warm interior, wooden and leather furniture, mild light and a lot of books around. Very cosy and homy, same time creative and refreshing.
The menu is positioned as raw and organic, with choice of small and large plates instead of starters and mains. We were offered a set business lunch menu, price starting from AED 90 including water. My choice was a smoked kingfish with vegetables and herbs for a starter and roasted salmon with burghul and citrus hollaindase. The portions are small and the food is low calories, so I can highly recommend this restaurant for ladies who are on diet, but without sacrificing the taste of delicious food. For the desert I took the lemon cake, which was not too much impressive. Coffee from syphon was prepared on our table and impressed more 🙂
Overall impression from the restaurant is very good. I liked the concept a lot for its warm welcome atmosphere, simplicity and creativity same time. Adequate price tag as for DIFC. I would say the food is even better than the asked price for it.
Recommended for a lunch with business partners, catch up with friends, gossip meetings with girls, or even come alone for coffee and reading books .
