“It’s with great sadness that I leave my 'baby' behind,” he revealed to Esquire Middle East. “But I do intend to keep coming back to Dubai.”
Alongside The Loft at Dubai Opera, the deal includes French-inspired restaurant, La Serre Bistro & Boulangerie, and two additional restaurants joining RSI's portfolio in Q1 2019. The final addition will be the introduction of a new Gastropub concept to the UAE dining scene, slated for second quarter of 2019.
Ralph Homer, CEO and Co-Founder of Restaurant Secrets Inc. said, "We are pleased to mark the start of 2019 with such a significant expansion.
