You and your hunger are greeted in a jovial embrace as the yellow doors of this spacious 4500 square feet of Canadian canvas are swung open. Tucked in the grand JW Marriott Marquis, the Westlodge Saloon sitting sturdy and giant on the 68th floor is a modern American saloon with a vintage ‘Rock and Roll’ décor. I was too thrilled when I got invited to try out their new lunch menu. Here’s all about the gorgeous afternoon I spent there..
Name: Weslodge Saloon
Location: JW Marriott Marquis Dubai
Cuisine: Contemporary American
Ideal for: An elegant yet effortless lunch/dinner
What I ordered:
Blistered Cherry Tomatoes ( 90 dhs) – This fancy combination of warm gremolata served with grilled bread and a topping of the most lip smacking pesto will surely liven up all your taste buds.
Thrice Cooked Chips (30 dhs)- Thick cut delicious french fries served with their unique house ketchup.
Prime Rib Burger (95 dhs )- Who said burgers always have to have a patty inside? Instead of a regular one you are treated with fine cut beef slices cooked to perfection. This along with the horseradish slices, fried onions and melted cheddar is a total win-win.
Westlodge Chop Salad(60 dhs)- Laying down three words for this avocado and corn salad- Fresh. Flavourful. Fabulous.
Grilled Broccolini (40 dhs)- This side order was quite good but be aware the extra oil can lure you too quickly.
Chocolate pie with salted caramel – This was undoubtedly the best chocolate pie I have ever tried. The crumbly salted caramel base was so rich and added the perfect edge to the sweet pie. A must order!
-We humans are always looking for stories, greedy to a point of no return, forever hunting for new bits, hanging over the edge to know more and feel more. And Weslodge takes this a notch higher. Isn’t that kind of obvious when you are on the 68th floor watching the world down below slowly unfold itself?
– The entire place is created to transport you into a classic vintage American saloon with its giant antlers and walls adorned with monochromic photographs. The panoramic view of Dubai surely is the modern twist to this tale. You’ll be enswathed by the best views of the city and the amazing sunset will soak you in its dripping canopy of reds, healing almost all your aching bones. The plush leather and velvet sofas along with classic chandeliers gives this place a retro vibe.
-I would definitely go back for the breathtaking panoramas that would be ideal for a date night.
– Everything we ate was quite delicious but I was hoping for the lunch menu to be a little vast. Some extra choices go a long way.
Service – Prompt and excellent recommendations by the staff.
