The new restaurants include Brute, Clap, Iris Café and Jones the Grocer.
Are you indecisive when it comes to picking a restaurant? Well, Saudi Arabia’s new dining destination, Ramla Terraza, could be the answer. Located in Riyadh’s As Sahafah, it’s home to world-famous restaurants and cafés, plus live entertainment.
Ramla Terraza is a classy yet contemporary space, with floor-to-ceiling windows, indoor and outdoor seating. So far, the high-end venues include Brute and Clap, and the casual venues include Iris Café and Jones the Grocer.
Brute is raising the steaks in Riyadh. The Latin American restaurant specialises in Argentinian steaks. The concept comes from the same team behind another Argentinian steakhouse, Gaucho. Brute is a great spot for groups, as inside you’ll find long and round tables. Plus, entertainment includes a roving guitarist.
Put your hands together for Clap. The restaurant has venues in Beirut, Dubai and now Riyadh. The Lebanese-born brand opened a pop-up for Riyadh Season, and it is now becoming a permanent fixture at Ramla Terraza.
The new venue is a cool hangout, serving mocktails and welcoming DJs. The expansive space has a range of seating options, from long banquettes to counter top dining, plus there is a private dining room. There are plenty of pops of colour including green stools, red tassels hanging from the ceiling, and grey sofas with colourful cushions.
Clap is famous for serving top-quality Japanese cuisine. The food menu spans bites, starters, raw, signature rolls, sushi and sashimi. Plus, main courses range from black cod miso to salmon teriyaki.
Iris Café is a serene spot. Pass the little lake and tall trees, and you’ll find this cute café. With venues in Bahrain, Lebanon and Qatar, it’s loved for its international menu. Settle into one of the semi-circle sofas, and watch the chefs work some dry ice theatrics on the desserts.
Jones the Grocer
Say g’day to Jones the Grocer, an Australian retailer and restaurant. The brand has opened across the GCC, and is now bringing its signature offerings to Ramla Terraza. Guests can shop at the artisanal charcuterie, cheese room, bakery and gourmet grocery. Plus, there is a dedicated restaurant serving breakfasts, burgers, pastas and more.
Naif Saleh Alrajhi, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Naif Alrajhi Investment, explained: “We are delighted to partner with Addmind Hospitality to expand and diversify our portfolio in the F&B sector which is witnessing increasing demand for unique and quality dining experiences. People are always searching for the next great experience, and we can definitely help provide that as we always seek new and upscale ventures that add value to people’s lives and support economic growth.”
Riyadh is fast becoming a hotspot for dining hubs. Via Riyadh and Burairi Terrace recently opened, and both are home to 20 restaurants each.
Now when you struggle to make a restaurant decision, put one of these dining destinations on your radar. You can have mains in one venue and desserts in another – we’re not judging.
