The Cincinnati Bailliage was treated to a mid-summer culinary treat by Rip Sidhu, Chef/Owner of the Bombay Brazier Restaurant located in the northern suburb of Montgomery.
Chef Sidhu left his native Bhopal, India in 1991 to attend college in Houston. During his time in the United States, he was underwhelmed by the quality of Indian food he encountered. With the help of relatives back home, he learned the traditional dishes of his childhood and opened Chutney Indian Fast Food in Louisville, KY followed by the original Bombay Brazier Restaurant which he moved to the Cincinnati area five years ago.
We were seated at tables surrounded by warm, dark raspberry walls with pictures of ancient Sikh battle scenes and a prominent 4000 bottle glass brick wine room. The highly attentive staff meticulously served a 7 course menu with delectable sauces all made from scratch which we paired with wine brought from our personal collections.
At the end of the evening, we all gave our heat felt thanks to Vice Chargée de Mission Carmen Parks for carefully orchestrating this truly sensational culinary event in concert with Bailli George Elliott.
