Shudh vegetarian goes global and upmarket in Breach candy. It also crosses the Indian borders (or does it?) to serve Mexican and Italian cuisines. I lunch with a gourmet veggie twosome: a former state level badminton champion, the multi-talented, lovely Jayshree Sanghi of India's fourth generation automobile pioneering family is not only a Kathak dancer (trained under Padmashree Sunaina Hazarilal) but a creative cook whose dinners are legendary. Equally sporty (US champ in racquetball and squash) Navin Deo, having spent 40 years in a high profile US government job is back in India and making Impactroses which have been in huge demand. I’m bowled over by his long stemmed roses with their personalized gold embossed messages on the petals. We eat our way through the entire menu: result? The roses and the giant cookie dessert are the only highpoints of our lunch.

Decor

Happy surprise. The second floored restaurants pleasant ambiance with pale purple sofas, yellow-cushioned chairs with wooden geometrical frames, simple black-and-white caricatures, and graphics.

Food

Along with their a la carte Mexican and Italian menu they offer daily (except weekend dinners) a "Sunday Food Festival" (Rs 999 for one) you can order all 28 dishes. But we are told very strictly that it cannot be shared. So we get 2 of these and plenty a la carte ones too. The Picante Pizza (even a wheat-watchers one,) al dente aglio olio and lasagna pass muster. It is the giant, freshly baked gooey crisp cookie topped with warm chocolate sauce, and the moist warm Molten Chocolate Cake that saves the day.

Minus Points

Desi palate tuned fare, with plenty of cheese and ketchup. Soggy nachos, ketchupy Habanero Cottage Cheese, ditto for the quesadillas. Burrito lacks punch, overdressed salads, a strange Arabic pizza and so on. And on. No alcohol.

My Point

Open through the day, pleasing ambiance, well-presented food, attentive service are the plus points. Sure! a restaurant is in the business of making money and has to cater to all tastes but except for a few dishes, the vegetarian Italian Mexican fare bends over backward to please the Indian palate and tips over to become a mish mash of Gujjutalian and Mexidesi. Tasty no doubt!

Pristine and popular, Goregaon’s Ozone Club’s White (white leather furniture too!) offers an Italian menu (wine list too) with an equal number of vegetarian and non-vegetarian choices. From their speciality wood-oven pizza, Lamb Shank and Pollo Diavolo to the Pollo Diavolo, it has the right approach in this cosy 54-seater. If you’re in the area for a relaxed lunch or dinner, you can order their thin-crust pizzas (Margherita or Pepperoni) and good pastas (particularly Pesto and the home-made lasagne). Chocolate Fondant (order at least 20 minutes ahead) and Honey Ricotta Cheesecake are sweet ways to end the meal.

Note: The Sunday Brunch (`450, noon to 3.30pm) features live counters for omelettes in addition to salad and dessert counters. Great place for small parties during the week. For groups of 40 people or more, they’ll provide set menus
