World’s Youngest Michelin Restaurateur in London

27th June 2023

The world’s youngest two Michelin-starred restaurateur is set to make his international debut in London. Syed Asim Hussain, who became the world’s youngest restaurateur to have restaurants that hold two Michelin stars, at the age of 32 in 2018, will run twocouple of pop-ups this summer ahead of his team’s first international restaurant opening next year.

Hussain is behind Black Sheep Restaurants, which he founded in Hong Kong in 2012, which features more than 35 different concepts. Two of its most successful brands will take over the space at Carousel in Fitzrovia during July and August, with exclusive menus using produce from the British Isles.

From 17th-26th July, will be Michelin-starred New Punjab Club, followed by cult favourite Ho Lee Fook from 27th July-5th August. Then, in 2024, the group will open the first of what it said will be several London restaurants, inspired by either one of the pop-up concepts or a completely new one.

The group is also behind the Michelin-starred Belon, intimate edomae-style omakase Sushi Haru, and the Magistracy Dining Room and Carbone in Hong Kong.
