POWAI’S PARADISE: EVE, THE ALL-DAY CASUAL DINING RESTO-BAR ALL SET TO OPEN ITS DOORS FOR A SWEET HEAVENLY TIME!
The upscale township of Powai famous for its beautiful lake and the IIT institutes at every corner have seen their fair share of fine diners and high-energy bars but something always seemed to be amiss . Revamping the F&B scenario, levelling up the place and giving the town its new landmark is something the residents of Powai have never seen before. After months of labour, all their blood, sweat, money, and of course a lot of love the dynamic entrepreneurs of Monarch Liberty Hospitality- Sumit Govind Sharma, Pawan Shahri, Dhaval Udeshi, and Nikita Harisinghani, are all set to bridge the gap and provide the people of Powai, a place of tranquility with a state-of-the-art menu that transports them back in time- EVE all-day resto & bar.
As you take your first step in the modern-day premium casual dining space, the 7000 sq. ft charming restaurant with its vintage spiral staircase, regal chandeliers, wooden floors, Kane seats, minimalist lightning, and a white bar- you know you’ve entered a different world, the World of Eve. Decorated elegantly with splashes of bright colour, the airy space embodies the natural landscapes and diversity, a combination of wood, plants, ceramics, and cane, the place gives you a sense of comfort, and a feeling of home that makes you stay. Once you’ve taken in the beautiful interiors designed by the widely-acclaimed Mumbai-based KNS Architects known for their note-worthy projects like the SoHo house Mumbai and homes of many famous celebrities , the in-house 30ft. a library that houses over 4,000 books is sure to catch your eye and make you stay a little longer.
“Being in the industry for more than 10 years we noticed a gap in the market for an exponential place where you can not only consume high-quality ingredient dishes but also relax and unwind over a cup of coffee and Eve does exactly that- a comfortable place that allows you to indulge in the fine cuisine at your own leisure or by the comfort of your favourite story.” says Pawan Shahri, Founder.
With a cuisine-agnostic approach, at the helm of all kitchen affairs is the talented chef Sanket More. Having entered the kitchen from a young age to satisfy his own cravings he’s come a long way to concocting the perfect dishes to satisfy the palates of the oncoming visitors. Like a true master and lover of his craft, he believes in constantly reinventing, observing the people around him, and taking up new and improved cooking techniques to always keep the creativity flowing in his dishes and deliver the best on the plate.
“With the library, greenery, calm ambience and the cuisines we’ve built an inclusive space for anyone who wishes to spend some quality time with friends or themselves,because as we all know a great book and a steaming cup of coffee always makes for the best company.” says Sumit Govind Sharma, co-founder
The visionaries behind Eve believe in providing a rich experience but in a sustainable manner. The farm-to-fork menu is a reflection of the same, from the beautifully crafted salads to the sous vide cooking methodology and a zero-waste policy to support the local communities, the innovative menu is designed to promote seafood diversity, sustainable fisheries, and healthy oceans, whilst sourcing only the highest quality ingredients to create vibrant and exciting culinary delights. Coming from the chef’s list of personal favourites and in-house specials is Brick pressed chicken with fresco pepper sauce, herbed potato mash and garlic juice, and pink peppercorn-infused chicken tikka both of them quite unique, flavourful, and the ingredients in each gelling together brilliantly, giving the tastebuds a delightful treat. But if your heart is still not content then the Mock meat kheema pao, Britain-inspired citrus fish and chips, the trio of hummus, wild mushroom risotto, and Eve garlic prawns are sure to fill up your gut and that heart too!
Talking about keeping things creative in the kitchen, the chef Sanket More comments, “Experimenting and balancing the flavours is a key for a great dish. Every country and region has a huge variety of predominant ingredients and a restaurant is a place where your staff is usually a mix of eclectic people covering a different part of the country and working at different places, so getting inspired while taking the briefings and brainstorming on a variety of ingredients and mixing things is a fun a way to keep your creative juices flowing.”
Coming to the drinks menu, the in-house mixologist Sacchin Yadav has something magical up his sleeves that is transferred to every drink he makes, handcrafted with absolute precision and care to give the visitors a sweet taste of heaven in every sip. Some of his personal recommendations are Spice Trade which is inspired by Indian spices and has Gin infused with pink peppercorn, Kashmiri Kawa Tea Fresh made with green apple, clarified milk, and rose dust Glitter. But if you want to go old-school and give the good ol’ signature cocktails a try then Eves mule made with vodka, cucumber, basil, elderflower, and ginger ale will help you make some new (drunken) memories or the Essence of life made with gin infused with lemongrass, in-house kaffir lime liqueur, and tonic is sure to work wonders!
So what are you waiting for? Be it rain or shine, it's time to dine and experience paradise on a plate only at Eve, which promises you a jolly time and an evening filled with unforgettable memories!
