Nobu, the world’s most recognized Japanese restaurant, opens up at Four Seasons Hotel Doha. The award-winning property located on a private beach in the heart of Doha’s cosmopolitan city has teamed up with Chef Nobuyuki “Nobu” Matsuhisa to debut the world’s largest Nobu. To celebrate the opening, Four Seasons has also rolled out a special Taste of Nobu experience package.
Located at water’s edge along the Hotel’s private marina, the 26,000 square-foot Nobu Doha will throw its doors open on April 17, 2015. It is not only the largest of its kind in the world but it is also the only Nobu at a Four Seasons in the Middle East. It is also the second Nobu in the Gulf following Nobu Dubai at the Atlantis The Palm Jumeirah.
Spanning over three levels and designed by internationally recognized architect David Rockwell and his firm Rockwell Group, the restaurant captures a distinct look that resembles an ornate coiled shell. The circular restaurant pays tribute to Doha’s rich pearl diving past. Home to seven distinct dining and lounge areas, Nobu Doha boasts of signature design palette influenced by nature, such as warm wood, shimmering glasswork to reflect water elements, and rich layering of textiles.
Catering to the guests’ craving for distinctive flavors as well as ambiance, the new Nobu outpost makes an ideal destination for gatherings. Offering various dining and lounge areas on the platter, Nobu Doha includes an expansive 134-seat interior dining area; intimate 10-seat sushi counter; two exclusive private dining rooms; a sophisticated White Pearl Bar & Lounge; a stylish Black Pearl Bar & Lounge; and a one-of-a-kind 38-seat roof top lounge that encompasses both indoor and outdoor seating options.
Nobu Doha’s menu is influenced by Chef Matsuhisa’s extensive travels and international training, while also incorporating new creations infusing local ingredients representative of the region. The menu features a repertoire of signature dishes including the yellowtail sashimi with jalapeno, lobster with wasabi pepper sauce, and perhaps Chef Matsuhisa’s most notorious recipe – the black cod miso.
Chef Matsuhisa, who is celebrating 20 years as a successful chef and restaurateur, states, “I’m very excited to finally open our second Nobu in the Middle East,” said Chef Nobu Matsuhisa. “It is an honour for me to be able to share my food and culture with different people around the world. I look forward to new challenges and adventures with the opening of Nobu Doha.”
To celebrate the debut of Nobu Doha, Four Seasons has announced a special Taste of Nobu experience package. For $1,275, the package offers guests two night stay in a Premier Room overlooking Nobu Doha and the famed Arabian Gulf along with Omakase 10-course Chef’s Tasting Menu for two at Nobu Doha. Apart from this, guests will also receive exclusive amenities and Nobu cookbook too.
