With areas like the Pearl-Qatar, the Middle East is no stranger to luxury cuisine
and international chefs. With an influx of new restaurants, especially on the growing Pearl island, Chefs Alain Ducasse and Guy Savoy are two of the most recent to announce plans to open new businesses according to Astaire Magazine
. Both planning to be located in Qatar with an opening date this year, these new restaurants will mark the first venture into the Middle Eastern market for both chefs.
In 2009, the French president awarded Savoy with the officer of the legion honor. He has earned three Michelin stars a year since 2002 and has three restaurants in Paris, and locations in Las Vegas and Singapore. His newest restaurant will be in the Pearl-Qatar, a man-made island community built specifically for the world's most affluent. Filled with luxury cuisine (including a restaurant owned by Celebrity Chef Gordon Ramsay) and fashion houses, the Pearl-Qatar sets the tone for the talented chef's new project.
