Be it a reunion with friends or a lazy Sunday afternoon with your family, the Big Brunch Sundays at Fifty Five East, Grand Hyatt Mumbai is a gourmet celebration you can’t afford to miss. The lavish meal features an incredible range of international dishes and authentic preparations specially curated by a team of regional chefs.
Soak in the lively atmosphere of this dynamic restaurant designed by the internationally acclaimed designer Super Potato from Japan, as you indulge in a variety of cuisines under one roof. Begin with your favourite spirit — a glass of sparkling wine or a refreshing cocktail if you wish. Then, take a culinary tour with the Executive Chef, as he unveils a plethora of food counters one after the other — the mouth-watering chaat, the western grill and rotisserie, the Italian oven featuring live pizzas and pastas, the steam basket dishing out authentic momos, the sushi station with an interactive fridge, the yakitori grill, the Indian thali replete with well-seasoned tikkas, biryani and a potpourri of chutneys, and the ambrosial patisserie — while you make a long mental checklist of what you’d like to order.
What really appealed to me about this extravagant brunch was its service. I’ve never seen a staff that is so warm and composed in spite of the sea of guests flowing in. What I also noticed was that they never turned their guests down with a ‘No’. Whether it was a single slice of pita bread or a fruit salad, the Chef ensured that the guests got what they wanted. But somewhere I also felt that the experience could have been more memorable. Yes, the music soothed the senses, but the flash Gangnam Style dance performed by the chefs could have been choreographed in a better manner. Perhaps a live music performance or on-the-house cocktail shots could have taken the element of fun and relaxation up a few notches.
Whatever said and done, the Sunday was well-spent. It was good to see my mother smile and my husband eat with all his heart. These are little things that make me happy, and I’m glad this lovely brunch on a warm Sunday afternoon gave me so many fond memories to cherish.
Big Brunch Sundays is available at a stunning price of INR 2,855 plus taxes per person.
