You'll be transported to a faraway land, rich with colors, sounds and flavors, enlivening all the senses at Bizcaya, The Ritz-Carlton's main dining venue.

For this exclusive dinner series, Chef Ramesh, a native of Chennai, India, blends traditional dishes typically served family style into an elegant, five-course plated menu, each dish presented as a culinary work of art. Expect an impressive procession of delectable Indian dishes.

Dinner menu items include:

  • Amuse Bouche
  • Curry Goat Dosa and Ginger Peanut Chutney
  • Smoked Beet, Panner Cream, Pomegranate Gele, Red Watercress, Pea Tendrils and Red Chili Citrus Vinaigrette

  • Hariyali Marinated Trout, Shrimp Dumpling, Turmeric Potato Cake and Green Curry Foam
  • Jilebi, Buttermilk Ice Cream and Metai

The first year The Ritz-Carlton hosted the special dinner series, they hired a pair of live camels to greet guests at the entrance to the hotel. Yes, I said camels at the Ritz! One of them actually kissed me on the cheek.
