US seafood restaurant brand to open in Dubai

A US-based seafood restaurant that is popular among celebrities incuding David Beckham, Jay-Z and Beyonce, has announced plans to open its first overseas venture in Dubai.

EMM Group, one of New York’s leading restaurant firms, said it will initiate its global expansion with the opening of the first international outpost of the CATCH New York brand in Dubai in early 2015.

The restaurant is set to open at The Fairmont on Sheikh Zayed Road in Dubai.

The opening date has not yet been confirmed but it's expected to open late January or early February, the company said in a statement.

The company, led by hospitality veterans Eugene Remm and Mark Birnbaum, has attracted a loyal following among A-List with its contemporary renditions of classic dishes executed by executive chef Hung Huynh, winner of the US cooking competition reality show Top Chef.

Remm said: “We have nurtured CATCH New York and seen it grow into a brand that appeals to the contemporary diner in search of a complete dining experience.

"From the menu itself to the unique service style and the energy that permeates the dining room, the brand is inherently global and we are thrilled to have the opportunity to enter the established Dubai hospitality market,” said EMM Group partner Eugene Remm.
