After postponing the launch of their three signature restaurants — Caprese, Ssaffron and Yataii — once before, probably due to terrible weather, we finally saw the Shangri-La throw open the restaurants’ doors to the city. The event saw the city’s social set checking out the spaces, and trying out
different kinds of food and cocktails that made the rounds.
French luxury furniture brand Roche Bobois opened
its first outlet in the city recently. To mark the moment, Samvit Tara, managing director of Roche Bobois India, hosted a cocktail party. Attendees were seen admiring its winter collection 2015 over cocktails and hors d’oeuvres.
Mainland China launched its pan-Asian restaurant Asia Kitchen in the city last week with a grand party. Hosted by Nealesh and Runa Dalal, the do was attended by patrons of the Chinese restaurant. Guests were seen indulging in the spread of Japanese, Korean, Indonesian, and Thai food.
Chef Abhijit Saha and wife Shruti hosted an
intimate dinner for friends at Fava for Thanksgiving. Saha raised a toast before everyone sat down for the three-course meal that was paired with wines, courtesy Krsma Estates. The meal in itself was not traditional, but we didn’t hear anyone complain about the creative liberties taken by the chef.
