In­ter­na­tional North Ital­ian re­stro, ‘Ser­a­fina’, re­cently opened their doors with its scrump­tious grub pal­ette at Kolkata’s lux­ury shop­ping des­ti­na­tion, Quest Mall, on 5th Floor, mak­ing the joint the third in In­dia (after Mumbai and Ban­ga­lore).The Restau­rant Group is rapidly ex­pand­ing in dif­fer­ent parts of the coun­try and this marks an in­tro­duc­tion of the con­cept to the East zone, start­ing with the ‘City of Joy’. Spe­cial­is­ing in its au­then­tic North­ern Ital­ian cui­sine com­bined with its brisk at­mos­phere, Ser­a­fina is the 17th lo­ca­tion world­wide from own­ers Vit­to­rio As­saf and Fabio Granato. Glob­ally, Ser­a­fina is spread across 10 lo­ca­tions in New York, 1 in Philadel­phia and many other in­ter­na­tional lo­ca­tions like Brazil, Moscow and Tokyo. Global Kitchens is the part­ner for this fa­mous brand in In­dia. Com­ment­ing on this launch, Ni­langi Parekh (Part­ner, Global Kitchen, Kolkata) said, “I be­lieve, Kolkata is a place which un­der­stands dif­fer­ent cui­sine very well and we wanted to bring the pure Ital­ian pal­ette here as this bracket was miss­ing. We are ex­tremely ex­cited to part­ner with Ser­a­fina and in­tro­duce our cus­tomers in Kolkata to this il­lus­tri­ous brand. The au­then­tic Ital­ian flavours with ex­otic in­gre­di­ents are avail­able at your doorstep. All the el­e­ments like the truffles, cheese, semolina, flours etc are es­pe­cially im­ported for this eatery and lo­cally we are only sourc­ing the vegetables. The lively am­bi­ence along with the wood fired pizza’s and hand­made pasta’s will tempt you to re­visit the restau­rant”. Known for its thin crust pizza, Ser­a­fina Kolkata serves over 24 pizza va­ri­eties, rang­ing from the clas­sics, such as Mari­nara and Margherita, to the very so­phis­ti­cated, fea­tur­ing rare in­gre­di­ents, such as Tartufo Nero. Some fa­mous del­i­ca­cies in­clude, Paglia & Fieno, Pizza Bianca, Chicken Breast Pail­lard, Ravi­oli ai Porcini and such. The in­te­rior dé­cor con­cept for Ser­a­fina Kolkata was shaped by Vit­to­rio As­saf and Fabio Granato, to cater to the gour­mands of the city who all like to in­dulge into au­then­tic cuisines and de­light their taste buds. The in­te­ri­ors are well-lit and cosy, mak­ing one feel at home and this ex­e­cu­tion work has been car­ried by Payal Khanna from Aura Dezyne, a Ban­ga­lore based agency. A well-stocked bar and an open pizza sta­tion com­plete the look of the place. The tra­di­tional wood­stone pizza oven has been master-crafted in Amer­ica es­pe­cially for the Kolkata lo­ca­tion and is a stand­out fea­ture in the out­let. The spa­cious 80 cover restau­rant though is in the heart of the city, main­tains the ca­sual com­fort and spirit of the Ser­a­fina brand. On the lo­ca­tion Ni­langi fur­ther shares, “This floor of the mall be­ing a hub of dif­fer­ent ‘first en­tered’ brands which the Kolkatans are ex­pe­ri­enc­ing, I be­lieve Ser­a­fina will at­tract all sorts of age group. Un­der one roof all the fine-din­ing restau­rants hav­ing var­i­ous del­i­ca­cies is a unique con­cept which Quest has achieved and thus it was a nat­u­ral choice for us.”
