Mexican food lovers in Doha are in for an “exciting experience” with the first-ever La Bodega Negra in the Middle East now open at The St Regis Doha, it has been announced.
La Bodega Negra’s menu features Mexican staples like baja crispy fish tacos and tuna tostadas, as well as specialities from the wood-fired grill such as giant grilled prawns with chipotle aioli and wagyu rib eye with chimichurri and esquites, according to a press statement.
“Spicing and ingredients are specially sourced to ensure a magical and authentic culinary experience. A selection of bespoke mocktails and cocktails will complement the food,” the statement notes.
With its Hacienda-style interiors, the restaurant has the warm atmosphere of a Mexican philanthropists’ home. Collectors’ art adorns the walls and it houses a casual yet up-scale living, dining and bar area that brings to mind an elaborately designed impresario’s home. “The restaurant itself is 92 covers, and an expansive, leafy garden terrace,” the statement continues. Will Ricker, owner of La Bodega Negra, said: “We are ecstatic and thrilled to open our third global branch here in Qatar, at The St Regis Doha. We realise the importance of opening our first-ever Middle East destination here, as Doha has now become a regional hub for world-class culinary and gourmet outlets.”
La Bodega Negra is located in key international locations, including New York and London, and will open an Ibiza outpost next year. The London restaurant is known for being a prominent celebrity attraction. Opened in March 2012, La Bodega Negra “reshaped the concept of dining in London, combining a diverse clientele with theatre, bonhomie and outstanding Mexican food and drink”, the statement adds. Ian Hunt, operations director at La Bodega Negra Doha, said: “Our philosophy is to create a dining experience where food is to be shared and enjoyed. We are passionate about what we do, who we are, and all those that enter La Bodega Negra. Our new destination in Doha follows the steps of our other successful international landmarks.”
Guests can visit La Bodega Negra and “enjoy a superb culinary experience” from Sunday-Friday, when the restaurant is open from 6pm-11.30pm.
