16-02-2010 | By: Christine Parkinson | Category: Matching Opinions People Wines Business Asia England News

Progress! Most of the wines for the Hakkasan Emirates Palace opening list are chosen, and I’m just waiting for prices from the importers. Abu Dhabi has a 50% import tax on alcohol, so the prices will probably come as a shock. » More
