Yes, I know, I should be sent to Blogger jail. I’ve been a little remiss in the posting department.
As you know, I get distracted easily. My distractions have been both difficult (work, life) and sometimes delightful (no comment).
Recently, in the depth of my dual happy/sad funk, The Four Seasons invited me to try the new menu at an old Doha standard.
Il Teatro was one of the first restaurants I visited when I moved to Doha and I have had a fondness for it ever since. The issue is, it’s a little stuffy. The interior screams “High End Hotel Restaurant”. The food is always excellent, but the atmosphere a little lacking.
In an effort to “loosen its tie”, the restaurant’s new chef Marco Arlotti has injected some fun and is making it a little more casual. The new menu, straight out of comfort food 101.
There is an emphasis on seafood and the flavors are both familiar and also a little challenging. For example a Chilean sea bass with almonds may seem like a strange marriage to some, but the nuttiness works with the meatiness of the fish.
I’m always happy to see an old favorite get a makeover and this is one I hope this new incarnation is here to stay.
