Not only is Hubert Keller's third Burger Bar opening in San Francisco next week (the other two are in Vegas and St. Louis), but it looks like Keller—hot off his star role in Top Chef Masters—is striking while the iron is hot. DJ Hubert will be expanding his empire to Asia in a huge way in the next calendar year alone.
Assuming all goes to plan, Keller is going to open at least six new Burger Bars in Asia in 2010: three in the Philippines, two in Tokyo, one in Hong Kong, and maybe even another in Beijing. Word on the street is that the big Hong Kong hotels (the Mandarin Oriental, Shangri-La, etc.) are currently bidding to score the Burger Bar there.
