Japanese celebrity chef Nobu Matsuhisa is expanding his restaurant empire and will be adding Qatar to his footprint in the Middle East, when he opens Nobu Doha at the FOUR SEASONS.
Set to open by the end of the year, the 26,000-square-foot (2,400 square meter) space will be Matsuhisa’s largest restaurant.
Diners will be seated across three levels including a rooftop lounge, an interior dining area, a sushi counter and two private dining rooms, all of which can seat more than 300 people.
QATAR IS WORLD’S FASTEST GROWING LUXURY MARKET
The restaurant will be the second Nobu in the Middle East, following the opening of one at the Atlantis in Dubai in 2008.
The menu at Nobu Doha will use local ingredients such as exotic spices and fresh seafood from the Arabian Gulf, like black-streaked monocle bream and orange-spotted trevally.

Matsuhisa has been credited with being among the pioneers of Nikkei cuisine — a mash-up of Japanese, Peruvian and Latin American flavors like Japanese-influenced ceviche and sashimi tacos.
The Japanese chef owes some of his popularity to actor Robert De Niro, who is an investor in the Nobu empire.
