Jumeirah's The Rib Room.

Two Dubai restaurants operated by Jumeirah, the global luxury hotel group, have been included in an annual list of the world's 101 best hotel restaurants.

The hotel company said Al Mahara, the fine dining seafood restaurant in Burj Al Arab, and The Rib Room steakhouse in Jumeirah Emirates Towers, have both made the Daily Meal's ranking.

Based in the United States, The Daily Meal is the largest and highest quality resource for food and drink information and inspiration on the web, it said in a statement.

The list, which was compiled from recommendations by The Daily Meal's editors who have travelled extensively around the world, includes restaurants from six continents, 50 countries and more than 80 cities.

The Rib Room and Al Mahara are the only two outlets selected in the Gulf region, and appear alongside internationally recognised hotel restaurants such as Le Louis XV at Hôtel de Paris (Monte Carlo) and Joël Robuchon Restaurant at MGM Grand Hotel & Casino (Las Vegas).

Al Mahara was positioned 65th in the list which was topped by é by José Andrés, the multi-award-winning chef, which is in The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas.

Al Mahara boasts a 74-seat dining room and is led by executive chef Maxime Luvara. Popular mains include blue lobster from Brittany in orange and red wine sauce and lobster thermidor.

The Rib Room, which has undergone a recent refurbishment, was ranked 59th in the list. Diners can choose from 15 cuts of meat from Argentina, Australia, Canada, Ireland, and the US.
