Bombay Brasserie Exudes The Look Of A French Bistro
Bombay Brasserie reflects mini-India in its true sense when it comes to the decor and the food. As the brand entered the ‘City of Joy’ at Quest Mall, this 3,500 sq. ft. 120-seater fine-dining eatery boasts the look and feel of a French bistro decorated with artefacts from India. The prime facet is white with turquoise, aquamarine and shades of blue blended in the whole space. The pensive chandeliers hanging from the ceilings and the the framed pictures depicting different tastes of India have been conceptualised and executed by designer Payal Khanna of Aura Dezyne. Located on the fifth floor of the luxury mall, Bombay Brasserie also has a sidewalk with seating for those who would like a feel of the entire place or a meal without music. A white picket fence encloses the area. The front facade showcase the concept of French Window from where the theme of a brasserie comes in. The “spice bazaar” at the entrance lays out spices that are required for preparing the authentic Bengali dishes like the ‘paanchphoron’, dried chillies and so on, even a platter called Panchphoron Tandoori has been included in the menu. As people love their spices the designer thought of a little spice bazaar, who has laid out a similar spice corner in the Coimbatore outlet of Bombay Brasserie as well. Inside, the old kettles and tiffin boxes hand-painted in blue, different kinds of jars, and antique pieces decorate the shelves of the entire restaurant giving an amalgamated feel where the tradition meets modernity. The live kitchen gives one the clear view of chefs working hard and in full action as they prepare kebabs, tawa items, roomali rotis or any speciality like Lucknowi Ulta Tawa Paratha.
The beautiful lighting arrangement sets the cosy setting without intervening on the private moments one would love to enjoy at Bombay Brasserie Rajiv Singh, General Manager, Global Kitchens (Kolkata) LLP, under which most of the high-end fine dining brands like Bombay Brasserie, Irish House, Serafina and Q33 (which are getting launched soon) are getting operational, shares, “The USP of this place is you get everything under one roof, different cuisine from various regions be it Bengal, Kerala, Maharashtra, Lucknow, Kashmir.
