FROM TSUKIJI TO DOHA
Nozomi, the fine dining contemporary Japanese lifestyle restaurant from London and Riyadh, is now serving up intriguing Far Eastern culinary creations at the Pearl-Qatar.
The chic outlet is the final restaurant to open at the complex that houses Antica Pesa and Toro Toro. It offers 228 seats downstairs in the restaurant, including the outdoor patio, and 143 seats in the upstairs lounge with stunning views of the Marsa Malaz Kempinski hotel and the sea. The city's media were given a sneak preview of the restaurant's offerings - each more delectable and dramatic than the last. The smoked sashimi was followed up by gorgeous fresh-water Alaskan crabs, unagi and foie gras, and the famous Kobe beef sirloin. The executive chef explained that all the seafood is specially flown in from the famous Tsukiji fish market in Tokyo, from one merchant specifically who x-rays each fish, squid and shrimp to ensure they are of the highest quality. The dessert boat had an excellent chocolate fondant, an interesting dessert sushi and an innovative miso ice cream. The upstairs lounge offers up some great music, along with wood-smoked cocktails and views of the sea.
