Celeb chef to open two restaurants in Qatar in May

Foodies in Doha, rejoice! The city’s St. Regis hotel has announced that it will open two Gordon Ramsay restaurants in May. Headed by Michelin-starred Chef Gilles Bosquet, both restaurants will provide food enthusiasts with culinary delights inspired by celeb chef (and David Beckham’s best bud) Gordon Ramsey.

Gordon Ramsay Doha will launch on 1 May and will offer fine-dining experiences in an intimate setting, while Opal by Gordon Ramsay Doha will serve western classics in a relaxed bistro-style environment from 15 May.   

“We are delighted to partner with the Gordon Ramsay Group to offer guests and local residents two incredible dining options,” said Tareq Derbas, General Manager at The St. Regis Doha. “A great deal of effort and detail has been put into perfecting these culinary experience for both casual diners and gourmet enthusiasts, and we are confident that these restaurants will elevate Doha’s fast-growing dining scene to the next level.”

“It’s fantastic to be opening two new restaurants in the St Regis hotel, which is going to be an amazing resort, in a fabulous city”, said Gordon Ramsay. “The restaurants are beautifully designed and I’m very proud of the team, led by Gilles, who will be serving the very best of our traditional dishes as well as some exciting new ones.”

Designed by Rockwell Group Europe, Gordon Ramsay Doha is a modern take on the features of a classical English manor, with ivory whites, greys, and accents of warm colour. The arrival experience is defined by an indoor conservatory furnished with sofas and chairs that reinterpret the classic Chesterfield sofa in contemporary fashion and fabrics. Among the signature dishes on offer, guests can indulge in Chef Gordon Ramsay’s famed ravioli of lobster, shellfish and salmon, and discover Chef Bosquet’s signature cannelloni of wild mushrooms with black truffle emulsion. For an ultimate experience, diners can opt for the seven-course tasting menu.

Opal by Gordon Ramsay Doha offers indoor and outdoor seating with extensive views of the shimmering Arabian Gulf.  The restaurant will provide a relaxed alternative, with a range of popular favourites executed to perfection such as crispy chicken wings, freshly-diced fish ceviche, impeccably-seasoned steaks with homemade garnish and a pizza menu. 

Sounds delish, we can’t wait!
