Posts Tagged ‘Ritz carlton Miami’

I had the privilege, recently,  to partner with The Ritz Carlton Coconut Groves in creating, successfully, an Elegant & Authentic Indian Themed  Pop Up Restaurant at their Signature Restaurant, Biscaya.

I learnt right away, from the start, that the reputation of the “Ritz Carlton “brand  is no accident… but the results of a Great Business & Customer Service Philosophy they live by at every step of the way. I experienced it, first hand, behind the scenes,  working with such …a Great Team of professionals of the Ritz Carlton Coconut Groves, …from the Wonderful Tatiana Lora, the Public Relations Manager of the Ritz Carlton Coconut Groves & Ritz Carlton Key Biscayne, …The Talented & Creative Executive Chef Ramesh Kaduru,  …Matthew the F&B Manager & his Team, …to The General Manager of the Ritz Carlton Jacqueline with the Super Genuine Smile & the Best Attitude ( a Rare Gem Woman in a Male Dominated Position as Hotel General Manager )

Back to the pop up restaurant,

I am not a food writer but a food Passionate Lover, so it was natural for me to positively connect with the Ritz Carlton Coconut Groves Team and jump on board of their ” Passage to India” Project

One thing is for sure,

this is OBVIOUSLY not your typical Neighborhood Indian Restaurant …..EXCEPT for the  PRICES …..which are very much affordable  with many Entrees under $18.

The Executive Chef Ramesh Kaduru & his Team did REALLY A FANTASTIC JOB in MASTERING what the Indian Cuisine is all about and offering it in a Creative & Accessible Way…..

The Passage To India Pop up restaurant is scheduled for 1 Month only,  from OCT 3rd to NOV 3rd, Thursday to Sunday. Entertainment: Tabla & Sitar Musicians, Bollywood Dancer based on the day you go

Hopefully, it is successful ( $$$ ) enough to strech it a bit longer longer.

Such a Quality Indian Cuisine offering by the Riz carlton & Chef Ramesh Kaduru is really a great addition to South Florida International Cuisine Scene

Cheers!!
