Wine investor to open restaurant

Chef Abhijit Saha to lend his personal brand identity.

Singapore based Ravi Viswanathan, the global wine investor, is planning to open a signature fine-dining Indian restaurant that will see Bangalore's acclaimed chef Abhijit Saha lend his personal brand identity.

Viswanathan along with Reliance Capital sealed a deal to buy 33 percent stake in India's largest winemaker Sula for over Rs 200 crore recently. He had earlier acquired a stake in Bangalore-based winemaker Grover Vineyards. 

The restaurant with brand Saha has 62 seat-cum-roof top bar that will be operational in the third week of June located at Singapore's historic district of Tanjong Pagar. The menu would focus on various Indian regional cuisines.

Viswanathan's hospitality business took shape around three years ago with the launch of Buyan - a Russian restaurant in Singapore that's run by his wife and boasted of having an exquisite collection of vintage wines. Saha, who's currently in Singapore overseeing the launch preparations, said that his hospitality venture with Viswanathan was based on a franchise-cum-consultancy model. 

Speaking on the same, Chef Saha, said, "Our aim is to serve Indian regional cuisines with a modern approach, using the latest culinary best practices to enhance the product offering. Given that Singapore boasts of a large south-Indian expat population, Saha would offer a specially crafted south-Indian tasting menu.
