Le Cirque du monde.

ShareThis

It lost a Times star last year, but Le Cirque is forging ahead with plans to go global. The East Side French restaurant is cooking up a London outpost for next year, and a Middle East branch could open in 2009. We have offers in London, Dubai, Qatar, and Abu Dhabi, confirms Sirio Maccioni, Le Cirque’s 74-year-old owner. I have three sonswho with him run Le Cirque; its crosstown offshoot, Osteria del Circo; and its Las Vegas, Mexico City, and Dominican Republic incarnationsand I think this is something they should do. This is no licensing or consulting deal; the Maccionis will directly run the new locations. We are negotiating with a luxury hotel in London, confirms their restaurant consultant Elizabeth Blau. And the Mideast? We’re talking to them in January, Maccioni says.
