Urban Zing Factor

Simple, fresh, traditional and cultural Italian cuisines from hometowns of both the chefs, inspired from their grandmother’s kitchen.

A Great Day – A Great Conversation:

Last year when I was compiling my year end story, I spoke with numerous chefs and found that most of them are working on local produce, seasonal produce, travelling across country to find some hidden or unexplored gems, so that they can bring them to bigger and larger canvas (culinary). Apart from excellent food, I enjoyed hearty my conversation with Chef on various topics and on the new menu that was being introduced.

The Changes, the Essence, the Future:

The new menu at La Piazza takes you back to your childhood when homes would get filled with the aroma of grandmoms’ cooking. The duo chef at Hyatt, reminisced their childhood and presented the food, the way their grandma used to cook – Food from Milan and central Italy. A simple fresh and traditional Italian food inspired from their grandma’s kitchen.

The Gusto food and My Take:

I generally prefer to follow chef’s recommendations as they being the creator can aptly take me through the gastronomical journey, where I can not only enjoy great food, but equally share the passion as well as the churning of thought process behind the incredible menu. It isn’t possible to try every dish from a-la-carte and hence relying completely on chef’s recommendation is always a treat in itself!

The warm mushroom salad with goat cheese and cherry tomato was fresh and crunchy, a great way to start your meal. Roasted scallop,arthichoke,chive risotto was simple and classic. The pizzas have always been signature dish of La Piazzas and they are all-time classics.

Prawn stuffed calamari with lemon scented mashed potato and Pan seared sea bass with sauteed asparagus were the perfect example of classic Italian dishes cooked to perfection

Grilled cake with raisin and custard with hint of Grand Marnier was one of the fluffiest and a perfect example of how to create a perfect dessert with leftovers.
