As members of Taj InnerCircle, India’s largest hotel loyalty programme, valid at over 80 hotels locally, and at 16 hotels at iconic international destinations, we look forward to our yearly stay-cation in our city of residence. Over the years we have enjoyed our free weekends as ‘Taj InnerCircle’ members, at the Vivanta by Taj – President, Taj Lands End – Mumbai and our favourite, The Taj Mahal Palace Hotel, Mumbai, a property we love dearly and have celebrated many a special occasion at. For us, the Taj brand embodies a perfect mix of sophistication and warmth, with high standards of services and etiquette from their staff.
This year, a friend recommended we spend our weekend at the Taj Santacruz, the brand new luxury hotel, located near the domestic airport in Mumbai.
Executive Chef Honza Štěrba and his team accepted yet another prize “plate” at the awards ceremony held at the Mercedes-Benz showroom in Prague 4. Czech restaurants are rated each year as part of a nationwide survey in the food, service, and interior categories. Piano Nobile is also part of the winter Grand Restaurant Festival, which takes place from January 15 to February 28. This year’s theme is superfoods – those which have been scientifically proven to have beneficial effects on health and longevity. The “superfood” phenomenon is gaining importance worldwide. Nowadays people want to live more healthily, take care of themselves both physically and emotionally, and even experiment a little. The requirement was that at least one course contain one or more superfoods that are local, seasonal, and grown or raised with love.
Piano Nobile’s awards ceremony menu featured:
Wild duck • Celery root • Apple • Chestnuts • Village sauce and Cedar chocolate • Buckthorn • Clementine marmalade

It is where talent knows no boundaries and one can expect an Oscar winning performance on every visit. If you, my dear reader think I am referring to the recently restored and re-opened Opera House, where entertainment and art have reached dizzying heights, appealing to the most alluring cultural minds, I don’t blame you. But for a connoisseur of good food, a person with a discerning palate, a gourmet, the stage show he looks forward to, is of a different kind. The kind in which the conductor of the orchestra, performs in the kitchen.
