Hakkasan to open in Emirates Palace today

May 31- Hakkasan, an upscale Chinese restaurant company owned by Abu Dhabi Government’s Tasameem, is all set to open its first restaurant at the Emirates Palace today, even though the company suffered huge losses last year.

Hakkasan is also considering other Middle Eastern countries as part of its expansion plans. “Next year we want to open in Shanghai, Paris, New York and other sites in the Middle East,” said Niall Howard, Chief Executive of the company. The flagship outlet is based in its Michelin-starred restaurant in London’s West End while another branch was opened up in Miami last year.

“Abu Dhabi became our first preference partly because of the owner and partly because the Emirates Palace is a perfect match for us in terms of our global luxury brand,” he added.

Tasameem, a property arm of the government-owned Abu Dhabi Investment Authority (ADIA), became Hakkasan’s parent company in December 2007.
