The Money Man Behind Michael White's Restaurant Empire

New, 3 comments

Bloomberg TV runs a story today about Ahmass Fakahany, a former big shot at Merrill Lynch who quit a year before the financial collapse to get into the restaurant game. Now he's one of chef Michael White's biggest investors, providing investment for his two New Jersey restaurants, Convivio, Marea, Osteria Morini, the upcoming Ai Fiori, and Michael Whites's projects in Hong Kong. He says of Ai Fiori, in the Setai: "This will be our first hotel brand that could be, if all goes well, portable to other hotels." Behind every successful chef is a deep pockets moneyman.
