When it started out in April 1999, Indigo was one of the city’s first true fine dining places barring the five-star hotels. Tucked away in a bylane near the Gateway of India, the Colaba restaurant also was a trendsetter in serving European food in a chic setting. Fifteen years in business, the restaurant will now celebrate its long-standing presence in Mumbai’s culinary landscape with a specially designed “15-course tasting menu”.
Fittingly priced at Rs 1,500 (plus tax per person), the three-day menu — for April 18 (dinner), April 19 (lunch and dinner) and April 20 (dinner) — will be a surprise for the guests who will get to try 15 different items, albeit in smaller quantities.
“The focus at Indigo has always been the food. The Fifteen Plates menu is really a reinforcement of this ethos and will give our guests the opportunity to taste a variety of dishes reflecting all that Indigo stands for,” says Rahul Akerkar, head chef of the restaurant and founder of deGustibus Hospitality Pvt Ltd, the parent company of Indigo.
