Very quickly. Taada taadi, as the Bongs would say, the dinner last night was a bit of a disaster ... Though Chef Morimoto is a photegenic hottie, with a hot temper to match those amazing looks. He is not averse to adding garam masala to Japenese dishes, he said, since he does not believe in following 'rules'. Always a great sign. Inspired chefs are inventive, innovative and create asthey go along. Alas, his Omakase menu at 6000 bucks per head (minus taxes), was not inspired enough. Or I was in a bad mood ( but if two glasses of vintage Dom can't do the trick...?).Eight tiny portions were sampled... and I barely liked two. I am not a big fan of anything TARTARE ( raw meats), so perhaps i shouldn't be commenting. But even the Wagyu disappointed. BADE MIYAN'S KEBABS ARE TASTIER. Enough said.
I must run. Rituparno awaits me in Kolkata. I love his films. And am looking forward to being on his show. It's a Dusshera Special. He is one director to have extracted the best performances from our ice maiden Aishwarya Rai. Even in a mediocre film like Raincoat, with that overrated and most unattractive actor, Ajay Devgan.
