Coya Abu Dhabi launch date revealed
This will be the second branch of the London-founded restaurant to open in the region
Peruvian restaurant Coya is set to open in Abu Dhabi in February 2017, brought to the UAE capital by US company Gulf Related.
This will be the second branch of the London-founded restaurant to open in the region, following the 2014 launch of Coya Dubai.
Coya Abu Dhabi will open in The Galleria at Maryah Island, set over two levels. As with all Coya outlets, London-based design house Sagrada worked on the restaurant, which also features the signature Coya Pisco Lounge. This serves over 22 homemade infusions of pisco — a brandy produced in Peru and Chile.
Caterer reported in September 2016 that branches of d.ream brands Coya, Nusr-Et and La Petite Maison would open in The Galleria, alongside Zuma Abu Dhabi, which opened in 2014, and Roberto's Abu Dhabi, which launched in October 2016.
Gulf Related co-managing partner & Related Urban president and CEO Ken Himmel told Caterer in an interview last September that the brands will all be at the base of Four Seasons Hotel Abu Dhabi so that it “gives everyone the opportunity to do licensed restaurants”.
