Review : South High Kitchen And Bar

Posted on Updated on

Decor: Yellow ochre, parrot green, bright blues…splashed all over the two rooms (or is it three?) Colourfully Painted walls, festooned  with pots, pans and ladles. An equally colourful bar…gastro darshini by day, cafe bar by night.

Review: Arth

Posted on

Swaggering shimmering sprawling duplex interiors by high octane brand Gauri Khan. No gas, charcoal only kitchen helmed by Best Lady Chef Tourism award winner Amnindner Sandhu. That’s Khar’s brand new Arth. Is there any hope behind the hype?

Review: House of Nomad

We welcome this high energy gastro bar with low prices (average dish Rs 450), compact global menu (some dishes need to be fine tuned), expansive list of wines and innovative cocktails.

India Shines in NYC

Posted on Updated on

Please take a look at the photograph shot under the beautiful ceiling mural of the Rotunda. For over eighty years, it has been New York’s iconic meeting place. And aptly enough, I’m breakfasting with icons of the culinary world. And India is the focus. America’s most brilliant award winning Food TV producer Geoffrey Drummond (renowned for his shows with Julia Child and Eric Ripert) is working on the ultimate food show on nourishment and India is magnetising him. Putting India firmly on America’s gourmet map, Vikas Khanna, the award-winning Michelin-starred chef, cookbook writer, filmmaker, humanitarian and judge of MasterChef India sparkles the morning. Interestingly though Escoffier, the King of French chefs (and codifier of French cuisine), did all the initial menus at this magnificent stately Pierre. It was here that America’s first Indian fine dine restaurant was located. Today, the brilliant young Keralite chef Ashfer Biju is making history again. He is reimagining classics with a fresh modern seasonal perspective and has NYC eating out of his hands. The joint-degree holder from the finest in America and France, the dynamic Francois Olivier Luiggi who helms this exquisite icon not only ensures that it retains its historic grandeur (hand-painted murals et al) but also rocks ahead youthfully. Jai Ho!

Review: Lemon Leaf

Lemon Leaf keeps Pan-Asia as its compass but blurs boundaries to please Indian palates and does that well. It’s a pleasing, relaxed neighbourhood eatery with plenty of comforting tasty food at very comforting prices.

Vibrant and tongue in chic, just about begins to describe my high voltage lunch guest, and the new restaurant we reviewed.

Review: China Bistro

Posted on

Some of the dishes are creatively served (jars and cutting glasses) but right through it’s the casual, no pretentious vibe and the VFM pricing which comes up tops. If only there was consistency in the cooking..

Review: Toast and Tonic

This is it. The go-to, drop-in new casual restaurant for enlightened (and not so enlightened) foodies on all budgets.
