Condé Nast Trav­eller and Hi­malayan Sparkling Top Restau­rant Awards 2018 re­cently un­veiled In­dia’s 50 best premium restau­rants at the St Regis Mum­bai, amidst the coun­try’s top restau­ra­teurs, chefs, hos­pi­tal­ity vet­er­ans and food en­trepreneurs. Their rank­ing of premium eat­ing es­tab­lish­ments was topped by Mum­bai’s very own, The Bom­bay Can­teen, fol­lowed by In­dian Ac­cent (New Delhi), The Ta­ble (Mum­bai), Bom­ras (Goa) and Masque (Mum­bai). Out of the 50 win­ning restau­rants, Mum­bai took the lead with 14 win­ning restau­rants, fol­lowed closely by Goa with 10 and Delhi with nine. Bengaluru joined the club with six win­ning restau­rants, Chen­nai with five, Kolkata with three and Hyderabad, Jaipur and Pune with one win­ning restau­rant each. Ad­di­tion­ally, a spe­cial jury ranked 10 restau­rants from the top 50 list that cel­e­brated the Raw & Fine phi­los­o­phy by Hi­malayan Nat­u­ral Min­eral Wa­ter. The ‘Hi­malayan Top 10 Raw & Fine’ list rep­re­sented and ap­plauded restau­rants who dif­fer­en­ti­ate them­selves with their unique, nat­u­rally sourced in­gre­di­ents that play a cen­tral role in pro­vid­ing a su­pe­rior ‘raw and fine’ ex­pe­ri­ence, sim­i­lar to that which Hi­malayan Nat­u­ral Min­eral wa­ter prac­tices — draw­ing its unique­ness en­tirely from na­ture. An­na­maya, An­daz Delhi led the pack, ac­com­pa­nied by nine other names from Mum­bai, Delhi, Goa, Ban­ga­lore and Kolkata. Hosted by ace chefs Manu Chan­dra and Pooja Dhin­gra, the cer­e­mony saw top names from the hos­pi­tal­ity in­dus­try fe­lic­i­tated for their con­tri­bu­tion to the sec­tor. Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu In­dia LLP were the process ad­vi­sors and of­fi­cial tab­u­la­tors for the Top Restau­rant Awards, en­sur­ing that the process was fair and the list, au­thor­i­ta­tive and cred­i­ble. Speak­ing on this as­so­ci­a­tion, VP and head of mar­ket­ing, Nour­ishco Bev­er­ages, Kut­tiah KS said, “It was great to see the over­whelm­ing re­sponse to the sec­ond edi­tion of the Condé Nast Trav­eller Hi­malayan Sparkling Top Restau­rant Awards, re­in­forc­ing it as the most au­thor­i­ta­tive list of top fine dining restau­rants in the coun­try, per­fectly com­pli­ment­ing Hi­malayan Nat­u­ral Min­eral Wa­ter which de­fines the fine wa­ter space in In­dia.”
