The Leeu Collection extends its hospitality footprint

The Leeu Collection is proud to announce its partnership with Indian celebrity chef and restaurateur, Ritu Dalmia.

In partnership with chef Ritu, the Leeu Collection will roll out an international restaurant portfolio, with the first two restaurants to open in Milan, Italy in the latter part of 2017 and the United Kingdom in 2018.

These international expansions are aligned with the growing hospitality footprint of the Leeu Collection’s founder Analjit Singh, currently targeting markets such as South Africa, the United Kingdom and Italy.

“Ritu has an appetite for innovation in the kitchen and she has dazzled foodies around the globe with her culinary skills,” says Carrie Wicks, CEO of the Leeu Collection. “With this new collaboration we strengthen everything the Leeu Collection stands for – culinary experiences with no boundaries, global in nature and unsurpassed in experience. A celebration of our philosophy through food.”
