Mumbai Five-Star Hotel Wins Best Italian Restaurant Honor From The Times of India

Renaissance Mumbai Convention Centre Hotel's Fratelli Fresh Recognized as City's Best

MUMBAI, INDIA--(Marketwire - Feb 28, 2013) - A warm atmosphere, focus on fresh ingredients and wine list with more than 3,000 options are just a few reasons Fratelli Fresh is one of the best restaurants in Mumbai and was named the Best Restaurant in Italian Category by The Times Food and Nightlife Awards.

The specialty Italian restaurant, located within this Mumbai five-star hotel, opened in October 2008 and has been wowing diners, from locals to international visitors, ever since. To learn about the restaurant's foundation, one only needs to look at its name. 'Fratelli' refers to the warm family atmosphere, while 'Fresh' highlights its emphasis on using the freshest ingredients.

Fratelli Fresh's win can be attributed to a number of reasons, says Saeid Heidari, general manager of this luxury hotel in Mumbai. He notes that the list of more than 3,000 Italian and new age wines, a contemporary and chic style, an open interactive kitchen and a beautiful view overlooking Powai Lake and the Hiranandani skyline are offerings unique to the restaurant. "It is the only restaurant in the city to offer different vintages of two Italian wines that are very highly rated by Wine Spectator," he adds. It was also the venue for Tommaso Cavalli, son of legendary designer Roberto Cavalli, when he launched his premium wine label Cavalli wines.

With its own small garden, the focus on fresh at this Mumbai International Airport hotel is a natural fit. The garden grows herbs, lettuce, tomatoes, eggplant and cabbage, all of which are used by chef Vincenzo Zizza when preparing his home-style Italian dishes. Open for breakfast and dinner, Fratelli Fresh offers a flavorful menu with a variety of seafood, meats, salads, fresh pastas, hand-tossed pizzas and desserts. The restaurant's private dining area is perfect for celebratory meals.
