US entrepreneur Jonathan Cheban, who rose to TV
fame as Kim Kardashian’s best friend on the family’s reality TV show, is
looking to launch two restaurants in Dubai, according to reports.

The 40-year-old PR executive was in Dubai for a fashion
event and said he was keen to open branches of his Sushi Couture and Burger
Bandit restaurant brands to the region.

“I love it here. I feel like I belong,” he told Gulf News. “And the restaurants will fit right in here too.”

The food entrepreneur was also in the emirate to
launch his food-focused lifestyle website thedishh.com.

“Nobody knows food like I do. And we’re mixing it
with celebrity lifestyle — basically life through my eyes and from my
perspective,” he added.
