Indian Accent Summer Menu - A delicious sneak peek , but before that some more really great news . Corporate Chef Manish Mehrotra is going to be super busy as Old World Hospitality announces the opening of the much celebrated Indian Accent in New York at Le Parker Meridien !

Sourish and I got to celebrate Indian Accent's debut on San Pellegrino's 100 best restaurants in the World , hitting spot 77 ! That itself set the mood for the afternoon as we got to experience Executive Chef Vivek Rana brilliance at Indian Accent , he now leads the team and has come into his own beautifully .
The meal - a shot of Sweet Corn Shorba set the tone for the afternoon . Dramatically served Smoked Masala Marwari Papad Salad tells you about Chef Rana's talent and creativity as did an outstanding Potato Sphere Chat on Sweet Boondi Yogurt. This was balanced off with superbly made Tandoori Mushroom Gorgonzola Salad with a Walnut Dust .

Chilean Spare Ribs with a hint of sweet pickle beautifully glazed were outstanding .Tamarind John Dory on Coconut Barley superbly plated with a hint of Virgin Coconut Oil , perfect . The winning fish for me was yet another John Dory with a hint of keri and a contrasting caramelized Candy Fruit flavor that melted in the mouth.

Black Quinoa Rings with Bondi Kadhi and an amazing Makai Palak Tart with Ricotta served on a bed of Makhani Curry was a must order dish . Morels stuffed with Tandoori Chicken will be the talking point soon .

We ended with assorted desserts , Peanut Butter Kulfi and Gobindo Bhog Kheer with air dried fruits were my favorite. Service at Indian Accent is superb and it's such a joy to meet Restaurant Manager Palki Singh who is bubbly and nurturing and makes sure the chef's food is served to perfection and each guest looked after personally .

Executive Chef Vivek - a total star , and awesome talent - he blushes too when you praise him , humble like Manish , I can see him continue to do wonders with Indian Accent under the guidance of Corporate Chef Manish Mehrotra . You guys are in for a superb summer menu at Indian Accent , the understated gem of Asia .
