I’m tasting Russia’s history, art, culture, dance all in one bite of this classic “egginanegg” dish you see in the photograph. Its in the 142 year old high ceilinged, stained glass ceilinged beautiful restaurant “L Europe” the haunt of global superstars, presidents and royalty. Bill Clinton, Whitney Houston, George Bernard Shaw and many more have dined here. The great Russian composer Tchaikovsky (my all time favourite) honeymooned here and today is Tchaikovsky night here in the Belmond Grand Hotel Europe, the most iconic landmark, witness to the history of the stunning St Petersburg. So the ballerinas dance in the restaurant. The multi-talented Chef Ian Christopher Minnis who has created this egginanegg (egg, caviar in the bejewelled Faberge egg) ensures the finest gourmet dinners here. He also oversees the amazing plethora of restaurants here. From the legendary caviar bar to the new Asian restaurant which also serves some Indian dishes and has an Indian chef. Our very own Prime Minister Modi stayed here last month. In fact, since Im staying here they’re flying the Indian flag outside the hotel too. Jai Hind!
Go for the quirky name. Stay for the Henpecked experience. Eat. Drink. Obey.

What happens when the French superstar bombshell Bardot slinks into the unglamorous Worli village? Voila! Mumbai’s only French restaurant (other than the creperie Suzette) “Slink and Bardot” opens.

My review of Jia, Mumbai’s hottest new Oriental restaurant follows. Its been packed ever since it opened. In order to evaluate consistency I dined here thrice (therefore the three photos). Each time we came away delighted as did the guests there.
