Heâ€™s also the founding Contributing Editor of the hospitality industry B2B magazine, BW Hotelier; blogger at www.indianrestaurantspy.com; and a founder member of the Delhi Gourmet Club.
Renowned food critic and popular restaurant business blogger Sourish Bhattacharyya has come on board with EazyDiner.com as Lead Critic for Delhi-NCR.
Bhattacharyya joins a stellar team headed by Vir Sanghvi; comprising Kalyan Karmakar and Roxanne Bamboat in Mumbai & Priyadarshini Nandy and Ipsita Basu in Bengaluru.
“It’s a great feeling to be working under Vir again. It was he who encouraged me to start writing about food seriously when he was Editor of the Hindustan Times.” Recalling those early days of food writing, when the India restaurant business was way down the evolutionary ladder, Bhattacharyya adds: “Vir set the ground rules for us then and it is heartening to see that those fundamental principles — honest reporting and unbiased ratings — continue to form the core of EazyDiner’s editorial philosophy. This gives me a sense of continuity and I look forward to this opportunity to hone my skills as a food critic”
With this new role, apart from reviewing restaurants and bars in Delhi-NCR, he will map food and beverage traditions and trends in the national capital and its neighborhood.
A journalist with 30 years of professional experience behind him, Bhattacharyya is a freelance restaurant critic and Op-Ed page food columnist for India Today Group’s Mail Today newspaper.
He’s also the founding Contributing Editor of the hospitality industry B2B magazine, BW Hotelier; blogger at www.indianrestaurantspy.com; and a founder member of the Delhi Gourmet Club.
In the past, he has served as Executive Editor, Mail Today; Editor, HT City, the lifestyle section of the Hindustan Times; and National Features Editor, The Indian Express. At Mail Today, he also edited the dining out guide, Delhi-NCR’s 101 Finest Restaurants, from 2011 to 2013.
