Katsuya's Ninth Location Opens Its Doors In Dubai
Katsuya, the internationally acclaimed restaurant from sbe's Disruptive Restaurant Group, unveils its highly-anticipated Dubai location, housed within the luxurious waterfront resort Jumeirah Al Naseem Hotel, Madinat Jumeirah. Katsuya Dubai is the ninth location in an expanding worldwide portfolio that includes Los Angeles, Las Vegas, South Beach, and Kuwait. Providing a world-renowned modern take on Japanese classics, as envisioned by Master Chef Katsuya Uechi, and widely regarded for its sleek design from visionary Philippe Starck, Katsuya delivers an original experience, exemplifying and adding to Dubai's vibrant and unrivaled dining scene.
"We're proud of Katsuya's longevity as a brand and our ability to enhance our portfolio on an international scale," states Sam Nazarian, Founder and CEO of leading hospitality group sbe. "With the success of the Katsuya openings in Kuwait at Avenues Mall and Arabella, it was a natural decision to continue to grow our footprint in the Middle East. We're excited to enter Dubai's influential dining scene with a strategic partner like M.H. Alshaya Co."
