    The Best Places to Eat and Drink in Doha in March 2021

    March is a funny month – that awkward bridge between Winter and Summer. This time last year…well we all know what happened then.

Some didn’t survive (RIP Snoull). Others barely scraped through. Some thrived. Others are still closed or struggling to make up ground. Usually I reserve a bit of my yearly wrap for some harsh words to restaurants and venues that didn’t live up to the hype. This year I won’t – the hospitality sector was hit…
