A luxury Big Apple brunch
There are many different types of brunches in Doha, from the relaxing, luxurious ones to the more adventurous; there is plenty to choose from when it comes to a good brunch. The Big Apple Brunch is the newest addition to the brunch scene in Qatar. I visited this brunch a couple of weeks ago and my experience was marvelous.
This is perhaps one of the most elegant and sophisticated brunches in the city and one of the most enjoyable ones as well.
The brunch takes place every Friday at the New York Steakhouse at the Marriott Marquis City Center Doha.
The restaurant’s atmosphere is lavish and relaxing. Decked out in dark wood and red leather chairs, this steakhouse is an elegant and well-designed restaurant. From the moment you walk in to when you are seated at your table and are served your food, you feel like royalty.
Contrary to other restaurants in Doha, the New York Steakhouse stands out for the quality of service. The level of attention to detail is extraordinary.
When it comes to the food, the Big Apple Brunch does not disappoint. The beef cuts and all the other dishes on offer are sensational. To start I would recommend trying the Surf and Turf Rock lobster, soft poached egg and Hollandaise sauce.
For a second appetizer, I had the French Onion Soup with caramelized onion, cured beef, Gruyere crouton and the Lobster Bisque Lobster medallion and baby corn, chervil. Both appetizers were phenomenal. Moving on to main courses the Seafood for 2 is a good option if you are not in the mood for beef. The platter come with fresh oysters, Alaskan king crab leg, Boston lobster, king prawns, cray fish tail, Marie-rose, aioli, mignonette, and lemon.
If you want to try a magnificent and flavoursome piece of meat, the Prime Angus Fillet Mignon with asparagus, confit tomato, and Béarnaise sauce is to die for. The beef is juicy and cooked to perfection. The Corn Fed Chicken Ratatouille with herb oil is another good choice.
In terms of entertainment, the brunch has it covered with an amazing band playing some of the most famous tunes worldwide.
When it comes to the price, the brunch is more expensive than most brunches in Doha, but it is worth it. Prices varies from QR 350 to QR 500. The brunch start at 12:30 noon and finishes at 4:00 p.m.
The Big Apple Brunch is a culinary experience that will please anyone who is into brunches. I would go again any day as I truly had an incredible time.
