Michelin-starred chef Alain Ducasse is reportedly working on a new restaurant at the Museum of Islamic Art in Qatar.
This latest restaurant would add onto Ducasse's list of restaurants in Paris, London, New York, Russia, Hong Kong, Tokyo, Las Vegas, Monaco, and Mauritius.
The museum, designed by architect IM Pei, currently only has one food and drink outlet in the building, a small coffee shop.
Sources say Ducasse's first restaurant in the Middle East could open before the year's end, although the opening day was pushed back from the September opening.
Earlier this month, Gordon Ramsay's restaurant Maze closed on the Pearl-Qatar, a couple months following an alcohol ban on the building. Similarly, Ruth's Chris Steak House pulled out after hearing about the ban.
Whether or not an alcohol ban will be placed on the museum has yet to be seen.
