What Happens when 10 hungry people just go to eat food at its best, no frills no fancies only authentic Kolhapuri Food.

They usually order more than they can eat and then they parcel it and eat it the next day too. That is what we did.

Home cooked food served piping hot and fresh, was a delight and we Food-Adda members enjoyed it to the hilt.

Address Hotel Gavran Kolhapur.

Near Ganga Constella, Kharadi, Pune.

Visit to The Attic.

When we came across a restaurant named The Attic, we were wondering if its one more restaurant in the ever-growing community of restaurants in Pune but one fine day when we passed it on the way, the facade was as beautiful and inviting as the interiors which is visible from the road.IMG_4911

 IMG_4912

Food-Adda was immediately interested in this beautiful restaurant and decided to try out The Attic for the food and the ambiance.IMG_4913

 

So When we reached Attic finally we were not surprised to see a well  designed , airy restaurant  with a warm and homely ambiance. The huge wooden framework and glass around had a feel of openness which is rare in a place like Pune.

Launch of Secret Recipes

Over the past 3 years, the food & beverage at JW Marriott Pune has set some very high standards and achieved benchmarks that were unheard of in Pune.

In particular, the appreciation and response that they have received for the food across all restaurants is overwhelming. This resulted in JW Marriott Pune achieving the highest Food & Beverage revenue amongst Marriott hotels in Asia Pacific coupled with multiple international & domestic awards for food excellence.

These achievements prompted them to conceptualize a culinary book called ‘Secret Recipes’. The book features some of the most famous recipes in the hotel by their expert chefs. The intent is to make this a very premium coffee table book that will have a huge aspirational value amongst or local and international patrons

We were delighted to be invited to JW Marrriott Pune on Sunday for the launch of the book.

The book launch was done by the hands of noted food critique Kunal Vijaykar and Mr. Atul Chordia.

Overall it was a fantastic afternoon, filled with music , delicious food in the company of who’s who of Pune . — at JW Marriott Hotel, Pune
