Doris Greif, General Manager, Jumeirah at Etihad Towers, said: "We are all so proud of our culinary, food and beverage teams. From the outset it was always envisaged that Jumeirah at Etihad Towers would not only be a centre for culinary celebration in Abu Dhabi, but a visionary and exciting gourmet capital for the whole region. It is very humbling that the general public and aficionados of the epicurean world have recognised us in this way, and we appreciate and respect the responsibilities that come with these accolades.
