Ferit Sahenk opens his famous Spanish restaurant in London
Ferit Sahenk, the boss of Dogus Group, has been one of the most prominent Turkish businessman in recent years, investing in tourism from the U.S. to Greece, Italy to Spain. In recent months, however, Sahenk has been sitting down with banks to restructure his loans. He has also sold a lot of his assets, mostly in tourism, continuing to invest in food and beverages. Dogus Group, whose two restaurants were listed among the best five in London in 2018 by Forbes, one of the most prestigious economy magazines, continues to grow in the UK. Sahenk has opened Amazonico, his famous Spanish restaurant, in London, as Kerim Ulker of daily DUNYA reports.
Amazonico, which has become the haunt of Spanish stars and politicians at its only branch in Madrid, Spain, will be opened in Berkeley Square in Mayfair, London. Amazonico will have a menu of European, Asian and South American cuisines in its 800 square meter facility. The restaurant, to be established at the former Allied Irish Bank’s building, has a rainforest theme. The number of restaurants Dogus Group has in the UK is 7. Among them, Inko Nito in Soho and Ruya in Mayfair attracted attention by Forbes. As it will be remembered, Sahenk made the headlines in 2016 for paying 60 million euro for a 40 percent share of the most famous restaurants in Madrid including, Amazonico, Ten Con Ten, El Paraguas and Ultramarinos Quintin. It was claimed that Nusr-Et, with which Sahenk was a partner, would open in England. If Nusr-Et is opened, the number of restaurants owned by Sahenk in London will increase to 9.
