Home > The Country > The Luminary Set: Explore the finest dining destinations in the Middle East and Europe

For discerning diners in search of exceptional gastronomic experiences, The Luminary Set has just launched

This curated collection features 40 restaurants, collectively boasting 18 Michelin Stars across 10 countries in Europe and the Middle East. Highlights include recent Michelin selections such as Rhodes W1, Akira Back, and City Social, along with Indya by Vineet, which retained its place on the latest Bib Gourmand list.

The Luminary Set includes distinguished restaurants awarded Michelin stars, affiliated with celebrity chefs, or recognised by leading restaurant guides such as Gault & Millau, Gambero Rosso, and the World’s 50 Best Restaurant Awards. This new brand spotlights the creatives and trailblazers behind these unforgettable establishments—chefs, sommeliers, and mixologists whose ingenuity has put their restaurants on the map.

The UAE collection features sixteen exquisite restaurants, including fourteen in Dubai and two in Abu Dhabi, each offering a unique dining experience. With a total of twenty-two handpicked venues across the Middle East, including Türkiye and Qatar, diners can embark on an enticing journey through the region.
