At Mustard, two cuisines that are seemingly very disparate -- Bengali and French -- thrive alongside each other. The concept that brings these two cuisines under the same roof is mustard, a condiment used liberally in both French and Bengali kitchens. A fine dining experience in a culturally enriched neighbourhood, this is a beautifully designed new garden restaurant.
Off Chogm Road, through a corridor of colourful potted plants against pastel coloured walls, guests enter an atmosphere of luxe and chic. Welcomed by an indoor space with a service counter, it further opens up into alfresco dining areas on either side, altogether, able to accommodate sixty guests.
The place is a visual delight with diverse flora adorning a lush landscape. Wicker and metal furniture in white and teal accentuate the setting. The decor is classic, courtesy kitchen and home selections from Freedom Tree, whose premises Mustard shares!
The venue is available for hosting private gatherings and special events. Mustard additionally provides catering services on request. Enquire here>>
Mustard, boasts an impressive menu of traditional Bengali and fine French fare, where mustard takes the centre stage in every dish, showcased either as a prime ingredient or as a garnish.
Curated by Pritha Sen, a chef and food historian; the Bengali menu has authentic offerings - Shukto, Mochar Ghonto, Deem Kosha, Doi Maachh, Kheer Komola and more. Chef Gregory Bazire brings his expertise in conceptualising the French menu with dishes on the likes of Tuna Pan Bangnat, Tortelloni a la Giardinera, Pork Medallions and Crème brûlée.
The restaurant prides on locally sourced ingredients with the exception of certain traditional materials, which are flown in from Kolkata. Also, a backyard garden provides for the kitchen's micro green salad supplies.
GOURMET FOOD SECTION
In the pipeline, Mustard envisages a gourmet food section that will retail a carefully chosen selection of wines, table foods and more.
Mustard is the brainchild of Shilpa Sharma and Poonam Singh, who have, over a few decades of dedication, forged identities as distinct as the flavour they have named their maiden F&B venture after. Bringing their experiences along from their successful careers in retail and hospitality, Shilpa and Poonam have channeled their shared passion for food by conceptualising Mustard, a restaurant that will introduce a new flavour to savour in Goa!
This is just the beginning of regional specialty restaurants across the country, with mustard being the center of attention!
