Prateek Sadhu & Masque // Mumbai

At wilderness-to-table restaurant Masque, opened in Mumbai in September 2016, ingredients take centre stage. Chef-patron Prateek Sadhu and co-owner Aditi Dugar have travelled the length and breadth of the country exploring a different rural India to bring to focus the lost ingredients of the Himalayan belt.

Their commitment to sustainability saw Masque ranked among the top 10 on Food Tank’s 2016 list of restaurant innovators in the world. That same year, Prateek was awarded most innovative chef of the year by the Western Culinary Association of India. Condé Nast Traveller India ranked Masque seventh on the Top Restaurant Awards 2017 list and named Prateek chef of the year.
