Hakkasan Plans NY Restaurant

(October 2011) posted on Wed Oct 12, 2011

Will debut in early 2012

Hakkasan, an upscale Chinese restaurant chain, will open an 11,000-sq.-ft. locale in Midtown Manhattan. The restaurant’s interior design will be by Paris-based architects Gilles & Boissier, which previously designed spaces for the brand in Miami and Abu Dhabi.

The 200-seat restaurant, which is slated to open in early 2012 on West 43rd Street, will reflect the brand's global philosophy with a few notable design updates that include a fresh motif and a deep blue color scheme, the company said in a news release.

Hakkasan ceo Niall Howard says the New York locale will be “the gateway for expansion in the U.S.” The company currently operates a total of five locations in Miami, London, Abu Dhabi and Mumbai, with an additional restaurant set to open in Dubai in November.
