DUBAI: If you are looking to have a classy breakfast to start your weekend, try out La Serre’s Champagne breakfast.

The restaurant provides an alcohol-free option for its Champagne breakfast from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, with a selection of eggs and other dishes.

The atmosphere is airy, with white chairs, tables, walls and fabric, giving it a chic feel. The wall art and the French music add an artsy vibe to the place. Another bonus is the location, in Dubai’s Downtown.

You can choose your eggs from a list of options, ranging from classic staples to a more French style.

Our recommendation would be the Oeufs au Plat et Foie Gras poele des Landes with an additional gram of Black Truffle, which are fried organic eggs with foie gras, caramelized onion and beef. Foie gras is that greatest of French delicacies, goose liver. We asked for slightly runny eggs, so that they oozed down on to the crispy bread. The black truffle gave the whole dish an earthy and smoky flavor and the foie gras added a smooth and creamy texture.

If you prefer to choose something more familiar, then go with the L’avocat Benedicte de “La Serre,” which comes with two poached eggs on toasted Campaillou bread with avocado and a choice of veal bacon, smoked salmon, spinach or mushroom and a side of hollandaise sauce. Again, the bread was super fresh and the avocados were perfectly ripe, translating into a mixture of creamy and buttery flavor and a crispy texture. We chose the salmon, which was soft, albeit a touch bland.

All breakfasts come with a basket of viennoiserie – French pastries – a fruit salad and yoghurt served with nuts and honey.

The pastries come with a small side of butter and jam, all of which are baked in-house. The almond croissant stands out from the bunch, with its incredibly flavorful velvety filling and crunchy exterior.

La Serre’s breakfast provides a breakfast experience with a noticeably French flavor in the heart of Dubai.

DUBAI: US TikTok star Addison Rae stepped out in a pair of heels by Lebanese footwear designer Andrea Wazen this week.

The Beirut-based designer, who is the younger sister of Lebanese fashion influencer Karen Wazen,  launched her eponymous, celebrity-approved label in 2013 following stints with some of the most renowned footwear designers in the world, including Christian Louboutin and Rupert Sanderson. 

The designer’s impressive list of celebrity clientele covers a broad spectrum of stars, from Hailey Bieber to Tracee Ellis Ross and Jennifer Lopez to Kylie Jenner, who have all donned Andrea Wazen’s strappy sandals and stilettos.

Rae, who rose to fame doing fun-to-replicate dances, opted for the Immy mules in multi-color. The fanciful footwear features mesh lined with leather  and a cone-shaped heel. She paired it with a bright yellow sweater and mom jeans. 

It’s not the first time the 20-year-old has been seen rocking an Andrea Wazen design. 

Last month, the Tik Tok star shared an Instagram Story with her 33.2 million followers in which she was spotted wearing clear pointy-toed shoes with white-strap detailing, called the Dassy PVC pumps. 

She styled the shoes with a white shirt dress from French luxury label Louis Vuitton that featured large pockets on the sides and was tied at the waist with a matching belt.

Indeed, Rae seems to be a fan of the Wazen family’s businesses. 

In recent months, she’s also been seen wearing  sunglasses by Karen Wazen Eyewear, including a pair of “Vicky” in navy blue shades from Karen’s line, which launched in December 2018.

Meanwhile, Rae isn’t the only star who has fallen head over heels for Andrea Wazen. 

US actress Emma Roberts recently donned a blush, floral Ganni dress paired with shoes by Lebanese footwear designer.

She opted for the Denver Lavender pumps, a pair of mesh sandals with an adjustable buckle strap.

“The Kissing Booth” star Joey King is also a fan. 

The 21-year-old was spotted wearing the 90s-inspired Gloria mules for a recent press event in Los Angeles. She paired the mules with a top and matching leggings from New York-based label Lirika Matoshi and a By Far bag.
