New Silk Route Opens Cafe Moshe’s in Pune


New Silk Route (NSR) has opened Café Moshe’s at Phoenix Market City mall, Pune. The cafe offers Mediterranean-inspired cuisine with celebrity chef Moshe Shek’s signature style to its first location outside Mumbai.

Chef Moshe Shek began his career at the Taj Mahal Hotel, Mumbai and also opened the city’s first restro-bar, Athena. Since opening his first Moshe’s outlet more than 10 years ago, Chef Shek has brought Mumbai diners authentic  dishes inspired by cuisines from across the Mediterranean and made with a focus on fresh, natural ingredients.

“We are thrilled to open the doors of our first Café in Pune,” he said. “As a former Pune resident, I have watched the city change from a sleepy little town into a bustling city with more and more globally exposed consumers seeking access to new cuisines. My partnership with NSR has enabled us to find the resources to expand into newer cities, and I am delighted to be able to finally fulfill the many requests from Pune citizens for a Moshe’s in their city. Pune is our first stop in what will be a journey into many new cities across the country,” Chef added.

“We are proud to have partnered with Chef Moshe and his team in supporting the company’s growth through the value-added capital we bring to our partnerships,” said Shantanu Nalavadi , Partner, New Silk Route.

Moshe’s Fine Foods was the second investment of NSR’s South Asia Gastronomy Enterprises (SAGE), a platform to invest in the rapidly growing food and beverage (F&B) sector in India. NSR, through SAGE, has allocated approximately USD 100 million to invest, build and grow companies in this sector.

In addition to the Pune café, Moshe’s operates 13 outlets in Mumbai, offering a range of enticing cuisine and eating experiences at Moshe restaurant, Café Moshe and Sufra, a Middle Eastern QSR takeaway, as well as full-service catering and exquisite in-store gourmet lines.
