European classics get a new flare at Luna, St Regis


While most of Mumbai fine dining eateries’ are engaged in conceptualizing out-of-the-box culinary concepts, Luna Gusta at St. Regis Mumbai is simply taking on the classics. Now, taking on the classics is undoubtedly an arduous task considering there are elements of comfort and old-world-charm associated with it, but under renowned chef Yogendra Adep, Luna Gusta is in for an enthralling menu. And, we can vouch for that! Well, for one the avocado toast is unlike the appetizer you relish at every corner diner and is rather embedded with cream cheese and the rare truffle.

In addition to the jaw-dropping views of Mumbai skyline from the 38th-floor restaurant, Luna Gusta’s interiors are something to talk about! While the modern chandeliers grace the ceilings, eclectic yellow and blue chairs surround the lavish tables. The plush Upper and Lower Deck seating entails a classy ambiance and assures a lovely fine-dining experience to our food connoisseurs.

Crafted and curated by Chef Yogen, the menu incorporates elements of style and philosophy that while being inherently simple, magically integrates sensorial visual presentations with enticing classic flavors and transportive tastes with luxurious gourmet ingredients.

Signature dishes created by Chef Yogen include the Bombay Benedict (inspired from the original dish; Jack Daniel Spare Ribs (Ribs are rubbed with the classic glaze sauce and spiced up with Smoked Poblano Chilies and roasted), Chicken Cordon Bleu (Prepared with a butterfly cut chicken breast, with a thin slice of ham inside, along with a slice of a soft Swiss cheese) and Chilean Sea Bass En Papillote (En papillote is a method of cooking in which the food is put into a folded pouch or parcel and then baked. The papillote is opened at the table to allow guests to smell the aroma when it opens) and Black Cod Aqua Pazza (need the technique we are using. We only have the historical one)

For dessert, a bespoke menu of ice-creams and desserts includes Blue Berry Ice Cream, Flaming Mud Cake, Ice Creams Tacos with varied flavors of Red Velvet & Cream cheese, Cream cheese and oreo, Tiramisu & Kahlua and Lemon curd & white chocolate.
