It's the start of a new month and that means the latest copy of Caterer Middle East is available now.
In the September issue, we take an in-depth look at the region's bar industry post-Covid-19, and ask whether now is the time for it to really embrace the growing trend for zero-proof drinks (which you may know as mocktails).
If you didn't catch the last Caterer Middle East Conference Bitesize webinar on the thorny topic of rent, then you can catch up on all the key talking points from Gates Hospitality's Naim Maadad, lawyer Jonathon Davidson of Davidson & Co, Nando's managing director George Kunnappally, and La Cantine du Faubourg owner Rizwan Kassim in this issue.
As always, our trending section will keep you up to date with all the latest news and opinions including a look at the recently opened Mami Umami and 99 Sushi Bar restaurants in Dubai.
We also sat down for a chat with Nara Pan Asian owner Anand Radia to discuss how the JLT restaurant has seen a post-lockdown boom, with takings up 50% on this time last year.
There's a deep dive into the reopening of The Artisan at Waldorf Astoria DIFC, as we speak with both the managing partner and the executive chef to see how they are going to continue the success of its previous iteration.
All that ans much more, and all available to read for free right here.
