Diners will soon be able to enjoy a taste of all three of chef Sid Sahrawat’s award-winning restaurants under one roof, with the upcoming launch of his Tuesday Test Kitchen.
Taking place on the first Tuesday of each month, this very special dining experience will see customers served two dishes each from Sidart, Cassia and Sid at The French Café.
Hosted in the private dining room, The French Kitchen, at Sid at the French Café, diners will also get to see Sahrawat doing what he does best, as he cooks, plates and introduces each dish.
The Tuesday Test Kitchen’s menu will change each month, delivering a superb taste of the cuisine on offer at Sahrawat’s entire stable, where the dishes are always made with the best of New Zealand’s seasonal produce and finished with the chef’s signature flair.
Diners can enjoy the contemporary Indian food that Cassia has become famous for, the flavours of the progressive Indian cuisine now found at Sidart, and the European-style menu offered at Sid at The French Café.
“People often ask me which of our three restaurants I think they should visit,” Sahrawat says.
“This new format will give our diners a little taste of each restaurant under one roof, in a fun and communal atmosphere.
“The style of food at each of our establishments may be different, but they all follow our ethos of using the best produce in innovative ways to give our diners an elevated experience.
“I’m really looking forward to welcoming guests to our table and showcasing this for them.”
The Tuesday Test Kitchen is priced at $175 per person, which includes canapés, the six dishes from the Sahrawat stable of restaurants, the choice of a glass of champagne, Seedlip cocktail or beer on arrival, as well as Vittoria water and after dinner tea or coffee.
The Tuesday Test Kitchen dates for 2019 are: June 4th, July 2nd, August 6th, September 3rd, October 1st and November 5th. Each will open from 6.30pm for a 7pm prompt start. The Tuesday Test Kitchen can cater for some dietary requirements – customers are advised to contact the restaurant directly before booking.
