Following the phenomenal success of the inaugural JLT Restaurant Awards in October and November 2017, we’re doing it all again in 2018!
The #JLTdiningAwards2018 will be even bigger and better, but the underlying mission remains the same: The Awards aim to showcase the variety and quality of the eateries in this Dubai neighbourhood – nowhere else can you find this many different restaurants in one area – and want to recognise the passion, sweat, and efforts put in by the many independent restaurants in JLT. We’re also always curious to see which restaurants are most popular among JLTians – residents, office workers, and visitors in JLT, the DMCC regulated free zone in the heart of new Dubai.
With over 200 independent restaurants, cafes, and bars spread across the various clusters, Jumeirah Lakes Towers is fast becoming Dubai’s go-to foodie neighbourhood.
Just like in 2017, the 2018 Awards will feature a mix of publicly voted and judges-awarded categories. We’ll announce the full list of categories for the 2018 awards in July 2018.
The (provisional) timeline for the 2018 JLT Restaurant Awards:
|August 2018:||Nominations open. Restaurants can nominate themselves free of charge to take part in the Awards.|
|September 2018:||Nominations will close on 30th September 2018 and we’ll publish the names of all participating restaurants on the JLT Dining Blog and on our Facebook, and Instagram pages.|
