For a well-earned culinary pit stop, head to the Ramusake pop up at W Abu Dhabi for a Japanese brunch with race views (prices start at Dhs1,200 for Friday), or opt for Yas Marina for a multitude of tastes and budgets. Try hearty British staples at The Scene, the Wok & Roll brunch at Mr Miyagi’s (starting from Dhs399), or indulge in stacked burgers and freak shakes at the Black Tap pop up taking over Boroughs cafe.
Book ahead for Cipriani’s sumptuous à la carte with the best views of the Marina, or head to Zahr El Laymoun for authentic Lebanese cuisine. Happy to travel off-site? Coya Abu Dhabi is offering packages from Dhs200 and showing the race on giant screens.
