BANGALORE, March 2017: April will see The Ritz-Carlton, Bangalore stage a sublime culinary experience by London based Chef, Atul Kochhar, as he showcases accents from 3 of his well-known restaurants.
A three night tryst at Riwaz will have guests get a flavor of Lima on the first night, NRI on the second, culminating this surreal dining experience on a definitive crescendo with a carefully crafted menu from the glorious Benaras.
The Menus on each night will be styled after the cuisine style from that particular restaurant, so diners can celebrate accents of their choice….or all 3 on the consecutive nights.
Date - 7th April – Lima
Lima, the Latin American Lounge Bar by Chef Atul Kochhar in BKC Mumbai has a menu based on the trending Peruvian cuisine and is an uber chic tapas bar. Michelin star quality meets Mexican, Brazilian and Peruvian food accents. Expect a refreshing Sea bass Ceviche, Quinoa and mint salad, Chichamorada granita made from purple corn (and popular in Peru) but allow the show stopper, black cod miso to do most of the talking.
Date - 8th April – NRI
Chef Atul Kochhar returned from London to home shores with a flavour palate that is not just Indian (or NRI) but has global influences from the Indian diaspora living all across the world. NRI is his labour of love and this happening restaurant in Mumbai serves global Indian cuisine that is both casual and comforting. The Menu on the 8th April will have Mamak rojak salad, the favourite fruit salad of Indian migrants in Malaysia and Durban’s famous mutton Bunny chow to name a few . To punctuate the courses there will be Imli kokum jeera gola, a tangy sorbet made with tamarind.
Date - 9th April – Benaras
Benares delivers acclaimed modern Indian cuisine as chic as its location in central Mayfair in London. Putting progressive Indian cuisine on the map, this restaurant also got Atul Kochhar his 2nd Michelin star. The outstanding menu on the 9th will be the pièce de résistance, taking diners to a sublime high with dishes such as Pan Seared Scallop with jhal muri, grape and ginger dressing, chargrilled Scottish salmon with coconut and curry leaf sauce with the sweet master stroke - Rhubarb Bhapa Doi, Gulab Jamun Brulée. This gala evening will be the befitting finale to the 3 day Atul Kochhar experiential.
