“We had a turnout of over 480 tables last edition in September and expect to have more than 550 tables filled up this year,” shares an excited Natchiket Shetye, co-founder of Cellar Doors Hospitality Pvt. Ltd, the pioneer in organising Restaurant Week in India. It started in Mumbai in 2010 and later spread to New Delhi, Bengaluru, Kolkata and Chennai.

They have soups like thom kha (Benjarong) and baby corn tempura (Teppan) as their new additions. Meanwhile Focaccia, participating for the first time, will showcase Italian flavours with the likes of fritto misto and risotto ai funghi. “One can expect alcoholic drinks to be introduced in the next edition this September,” Shetye assures.
