DGDA group CEO Jerry Inzerillo said: “The forthcoming opening of Bujairi Terrace demonstrates tangible progress in the implementation of His Royal Highness Mohammed Bin Salman’s Vision 2030, an exciting illustration of the far-reaching and ambitious vision we’re honoured to be part of with Saudi Arabia’s monumental transformation.

“We’re delighted to partner with such esteemed dining brands and to have attracted several new-to-market restaurant operators, representing an enriched consumer experience, which will be unmatched in the region.”

Diriyah Development Company president Jonathan Timms added: “Bujairi Terrace’s superb location within Riyadh province and overlooking the Jewel of the Kingdom, Unesco World Heritage Site at Turaif, has led to a world-class curation of global F&B brands.

“We look forward to providing an iconic dining setting for our partners’ brands, many of whom will be opening for the first time in Saudi Arabia.”

One of the leading projects within the Saudi Vision 2030, Diriyah Gate will boast 38 hotels, a range of museums, retail space and entertainment space.
