Cirque de Cuisine by Atlantis The Palm promises to be a fun, festive and flavourful affair.

Taking place on the evening of Thursday, December 7, the dine-around event allows access to the hotel's nine restaurants, each within a two-minute walk from the other. Diners can wander about the winter wonderland-inspired decor and sample delicacies such as: oysters, turkey and short rib doughnuts from Seafire Steakhouse; black cod and yellow tail sushi from Nobu; truffle risotto and duck ragu from Ronda Locatelli; dumplings and steamed mantou from Yuan; and Scottish salmon, veal & fennel sausages, and truffle mac & cheese fritters from Bread Street Kitchen & Bar.

The Avenues, where all the restaurants are located, will be decked with Christmas trees, snow-capped street lamps, fairy lights, life-size nutcrackers and candy cane stilt walkers, while Bread Street Kitchen's terrace will transform into a Christmas market complete with snow, picnic tables and festive games. A giant ginger bread house and life-size snow globe make for fun selfie backdrops.
