Business Traveller (India) - - BUSINESS TRAVELLER LIFESTYLE NEWS -

RESTAU­RANT WATCH Ja­mavar — the In­dian fine-din­ing restau­rant in London’s May­fair — has been awarded its first Miche­lin star within a year of its open­ing. The restau­rant joins 16 oth­ers that have won their first star in the Great Bri­tain and Ire­land Miche­lin Guide 2018. The Ja­mavar chain of pre­mium In­dian restau­rants made its de­but out­side of In­dia with its open­ing in the English cap­i­tal last year. Some of its sig­na­ture dishes in­clude holy basil chicken tikka, Old Delhi but­ter chicken, stone bass tikka, lob­ster idli (savoury cakes) and cin­na­mon kulfi with caramelised pecans. There are also a num­ber of sig­na­ture gin-based cock­tails such as Bur­man with In­dian spiced gin Ophir and Kash­mir, that’s Sip­smith gin in­fused with saf­fron, Maraschino liqueur. A con­cept cre­ated by The Leela Palaces, Ho­tels and Re­sorts, Ja­mavar’s other out­posts are at its ho­tels at New Delhi, Chen­nai, Goa and Mumbai. Swiss watch­maker Hublot col­lab­o­rates with Ger­man tan­ner Meindl to cre­ate Big Bang Bavaria. The chrono­graph com­bines the crafts­man­ship of two great in­no­va­tors who have come to­gether to cre­ate this iconic piece that sym­bol­ises “tra­di­tion and mod­ern in­no­va­tion”. The watch is cut in bronze and strapped onto two ro­bust hand em­broi­dered bracelets made from deer leather. The case back is black ce­ramic while the screws are made of 3N gold. Pow­er­ing the watch is Hublot’s Unico Move­ment, with 330 com­po­nents for a 72-hour power re­serve. It was launched dur­ing the Ok­to­ber­fest this year at the Hublot bou­tique in Mu­nich.
