Best Business Lunch• A business lunch in Doha usually involves a social gathering at a five-star hotel restaurant, an exquisite, but light, lunch, and some bubbly. Talking about business is optional, as this is all about meeting friends for a fine cuisine lunch that won’t break the bank. La Varenne, at Tornado Tower, offers a two-course business lunch for QR85 ($23) or a three-course for QR95 ($26). Guests have a choice of four hors d’oeuvres from a trolley brought to the table, curried parsnip soup, goat cheese and pea quiche, or cod brandade. The main courses cater to vegetarians, chicken, and red meat lovers all the same. For dessert the guest has a choice of fruit salad, ice cream, chocolate cake or four items from their mouthwatering dessert trolley. La Varenne was voted by local food critics as the best restaurant for business lunch of 2015.
