NEW YORK CITY — Hakkasan Group permanently closed its eight-year-old Midtown location of the Cantonese restaurant Hakkasan. A representative for the Hakkasan Group tells Eater NY in an email that “we have made the difficult decision to close our location due to the ongoing impact of COVID-19.” The Theater District location closed during the pandemic-related shutdown in New York City that started in March. The restaurant then laid off all 95 of the employees. In Las Vegas, the location at the MGM Grand remains closed, but the hospitality company plans to open its Mexican restaurant Casa Calavera at Virgin Hotels in January. [ENY]
