Getting yet another slice of Mumbai to Pune is Arth, which also brings a gasfree restaurant experience to the city. Known for its interiors that have been designed by Gauri Khan and it’s gas-free kitchen that is led by Chef Amninder Sandhu, the sprawling restaurant has a glamourous décor with flaming glass lamps and gold highlights on black. The highlight is the entirely gas-free kitchen that uses only charcoal and wood. Sandhu has sourced ingredients from corners of the country such as Majuli, Shillong, Khonoma, Alleppey, Mangalore, Guntur, Rishikesh and Kashmir. She uses only copper utensils, a live sigri and a sand pit with live charcoal to slow cook meats.
