The St. Regis Doha, Qatar’s newest luxury destination, today 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 Gordon Ramsay, one of the world’s most famed chefs. Launching on May 1, Gordon Ramsay Doha 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 May 15.
“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.
Prior to The St. Regis Doha, Chef Gilles Bosquet worked for the Gordon Ramsay Group at The Connaught’s Michelin Star restaurant in London. He has also worked in France, where he was Sous Chef at La Pyramide, a two-star Michelin restaurant in the heart of Paris, before joining a French countryside restaurant, where he was awarded his first Michelin Star. Ahead of his new position he has spent time with Gordon Ramsay’s team in London and he brings years of experience and passion to the menu at Gordon Ramsay Doha.
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.
The St. Regis Doha will offer the widest dining selection within a hotel in Qatar with 10 distinctive culinary and lounge experiences including the first Jazz at Lincoln Center outside of the United States.
Guests who wish to experience the hotel and sample some of the enticing flavours can benefit from the ongoing opening offer, which is valid until June 30, 2012.
