Inspired by the illustrious area in Beirut, InterContinental Doha debuts a brand new Lebanese restaurant, Gemmayze, which is all set to elevate Qatar’s dining and entertainment scenes to the next level. This new restaurant offers diners an authentic Lebanese dining experience topped with sensational live music entertainment by renowned artists amidst a trendy setting befitting its name.
Officiated by the Ambassador of Lebanon in Qatar, HE Hasan Najem, alongside Sheikh Hamad bin Mohamad Al Thani, the hotel’s owner, Andreas Pfister, Director of Operations for IHG® Northern Gulf and General Manager of InterContinental Doha, Andreas Petrides, General Manager of Gulf Hotels Company, and Cyril Mouawad, Resident Manager of InterContinental Doha, the grand opening of Gemmayze was a glitzy one with VIPS, distinguished guests, and media gracing the event. Guests enjoyed a great selection of Lebanese specialities prepared by Executive Chef Talal Aridi and his team of master chefs, paired with a soulful performance by Joseph Nemnom, a renowned musician from Lebanon.
In this new restaurant, diners can look forward to an exquisite a la carte menu showcasing a wide variety of cold and hot mezzeh, signature kebbeh and kebbeh nayeh, mixed grilled platter, fresh seafood, and irresistible sweets – from the quintessential kunafeh to creative ice cream made with a twist, along with an extensive beverage list. Come weekend, get ready for some of the freshest pastries and saj bread baked from the restaurant’s in-house oven, served with traditional cheeses, eggs, and sweets.
Aside from the extensive a la carte menu boasting Lebanese signatures and favourites, the three set menus offered will guarantee a hearty meal with family and friends. Starting from QAR 185 per person for the Gemmayze Set Menu, QAR 235 per person for the Gemmayze Bay Menu and QAR 325 per person for the Gemmayze Le Grand Menu. Each set menu features a great selection of cold and hot mezzah, succulent grilled items, and deserts.
Talal Aridi, Executive Chef of InterContinental Doha, said:
Food has always been a big part of Lebanese culture; where dining is a social affair over great food and company. In Gemmayze, we source and use only the freshest premium ingredients for all our dishes on the menu to provide everyone with an indulgent dining experience – be it for a family gathering, or a get-together with friends.’
Cyril Mouawad, Resident Manager of InterContinental Doha, said:
We are very pleased to bring a piece of Beirut to Doha, where our guests can immerse in the artistic vibes of Gemmayze. Every aspect of this new restaurant – from the specially curated menu, to the interiors and entertainment line-up offer diners an impeccable Lebanese dining experience. This new restaurant is the 12th food and beverage venue in our hotel, and is definitely one that is enhancing Qatar’s booming dining and entertainment scenes. Also, look forward to introducing a brand new, eclectic food and beverage concept in our hotel beginning of 2018.
