Katsuya continues Middle East expansion
Katsuya, the culinary concept from sbe's Disruptive Restaurant Group, expands its worldwide portfolio, unveiling a new outlet at The Avenues in Manama, Bahrain this month.
The new addition brings Katsuya's global footprint to 12, joining longstanding locations including Los Angeles, Las Vegas, South Beach, Dubai, Kuwait City, and The Bahamas. In addition to these openings, the brand is rapidly growing, with plans to open 15 more Katsuyas by 2020.
