Later, the father of two took a trip to La Maison Ani at Fashion Avenue in The Dubai Mall on May 30. The restaurant is a homegrown lifestyle concept that is influenced and inspired by chef Izu Ani’s passion for travel and is reminiscent of the culture and cuisine that molded his creativity. The restaurant too posted a picture of the Crown Prince on Instagram, and captioned it, “It was a complete honor and privilege to host The Crown Prince @faz3 at La Maison Ani by chef Izu. The first of many visits we hope.” Chef Izu also expressed his heartfelt gratitude and appreciation to Sheikh Hamdan for joining and being supportive of the restaurant.
