In November we will be hosting the inaugural Fact Dining Awards Dubai. This is your chance to vote for your favourite venues and win prizes! But before the voting goes live, we are publishing a longlist of potential nominees, and we want your input. Go through the list to see if your favourites are listed, if we are missing a worthy contender, give us a shout at awards@fact-magazine.com.

Not all of these venues will make the final list, but your feedback will matter.
