Officially Mumbai’s most ambitious restaurant, Masque is pretty darned special. Head chef Prateeek Sadhu’s ‘wilderness to table’ philosophy permeates his stunning menus of foraged and forgotten ingredients sourced from the Himalayan belt. Prateek’s commitment to “seeking out the magic” of India’s mountainous north using modern techniques and seasonal, sustainable ingredients is no surprise given his past experience. Alinea, The French Laundry and Le Bernardin all left their mark, but it was Prateek’s time at Noma under the tutelage of René Redzepi that really opened his eyes to the creative possibilities derived from working exclusively with ingredients from a single region. It’s an approach that’s clearly working... After two years of intensive R&D, Masque opened to widespread critical acclaim in September 2016, blazing a trail through India’s culinary landscape and garnering an international reputation for constant innovation. Prateek’s hotly anticipated Carousel residency follows collaborations with Amass (Copenhagen) and Gaa (Bangkok).
