Nikita emphasized that what started with managing one restaurant in the city has crossed to managing and co-owning close to 8 restaurants and consulting over 12 in the city. Our journey has been exhilarating; this business like any other has many high’s and low’s which only makes it more challenging and interesting. India lacked boutique restaurants for the urban Indian that served world-class food & beverages. We wanted to fill the gap!
After graduating, I knew my goal – I knew all I wanted to do was create unforgettable experiences! And that’s exactly what I did with my first venture – Chrome Entertainment.
But there was always this urge to do more. During the pandemic, I realized that I wanted to expand my domain knowledge into my own restaurants, where I could design boutique, intimate F&B experiences from the ground up and that laid the foundation for me. I conceptualize, design, and market our award-winning Food and Beverage (F&B) outlets. Sharp consumer insights from my previous experiences in the entertainment and lifestyle space have helped me curate outlets that the customers love! We hear the customer and work backwards to deliver and hence our customers keep coming back to us!
Nikita also elaborated that her creativity has been her fuel. She further added, “And the fact that I get to use creativity in everything I do is the most fun part of my entrepreneurship journey. Good reviews and watching people make memories at our restaurant gives me joy like no other – it is the most fulfilling aspect of being an entrepreneur. Thinking, conceptualizing and getting every detail right makes me go back to work every day. Our restaurants are a thorough reflection of our detail-oriented approach. From the cozy vibes at Blah! To our most Intagrammable space ‘Eve’, I love spending time on the details and delivering an experience that is etched in the visitor’s heart for a while!”
