More recently Scott was Executive chef at the Mirai Restaurant Group in Dubai and Bahrain.
The restaurant will offer both formal and casual Japanese dining over two floors. Scott’s dishes will include Slow Cooked Enoki Mushroom 'Risotto' with Fresh Sussex Edamame and Shaved Truffle and Smoked Duck Breast Tataki with Foie Gras Kabayaki and Ginger Amazu Sauce.
Scott comments -
‘Our goal at Wabi is to extend our years of passion and creativity to our guests. We will always continue to search for new and exciting ingredients and ideas and believe it is equally important for both guest and staff to constantly improve and evolve’

Designed by Studio 21, owned by Zoe Hui whose previous projects include ‘Beard Papa’, a Japanese franchise dessert company, both the bar and restaurant will showcase clean, geometric lines, traditional dark wood and muted colours, giving the impression of understated elegance, much like Japanese cuisine itself.
