SINGAPOREAN EXECUTIVE CHEF AND BUSINESS PARTNER, SUMOSANTWIGA LAST YEAR – 1
It’s been an interesting year for Singaporean chef Reif Othman. Shuttering his incredibly popular The Experience restaurant at the H Hotel, he has teamed up with former F1 supremo Flavio Briatore as a business partner in Sumosan Twiga and he will oversee the Sumosan chain in Dubai, Monte Carlo, and London as well as any future openings.
It’s a change of tack for the former Play restaurateur, but one he thinks will allow him to head into bigger and better things.
Othman has always been a key figure in the UAE dining scene, and has even made the crossover into more mainstream popularity, as an appearance in the Esquire 100 showed. Now we watch with interest to see what he will do with Sumosan and its mix of Japanese and Italian cuisine.
