Bandra Folks, this year just got better with the launch of Monèr: one of its kind and probably the first and only Dessert Bar & Bistro in India.
After working at multiple Michelin-star restaurants and creating fabulous desserts at Tiffany's Blue Box Café for events like Priyanka Chopra’s bridal shower, Chef Freny Fernandes is back home.
Armed with a whole lot of sweet knowledge, she’s here to revolutionize the very notion of dessert, one bite at a time.
Monèr is the product of Chef Freny’s love for all thing’s dessert, as well as the drive to create a space that’s unlike anything Bombay has ever seen. As a tribute to her parents, Monèr is a portmanteau of their names.
“Food is such an integral part of society, it literally has the power to unite & to divide, to heal & to hurt, to sustain & to provide pleasure, and most importantly to leave memories, both good and bad,” shared Chef Freny who started the brand because she wanted to be out there, both creating & sharing her love for perfect pastry.
Chef Freny’s vision is a lively bistro by day, serving a range of savory items that include, fresh salads and soups, sandwiches, French-style petit gateaux and entremets. However, just like a fairytale as soon as the clock strikes 7pm, the space will turn into a contemporary dessert bar exclusively dishing out gourmet, plated, exquisite desserts in three course/five course meals.
These bold dishes will be served with drinks that complement their flavours, creating a veritable symphony on your palate. Savour the 5 course menu, complete with choices of desserts like Vegan Pavlova with fresh seasonal fruits, Strawberries & Cream tart, or even savoury plates like Ricotta Toast served on sourdough, with pickled corn, Roasted cherry tomatoes and fresh basil.
The interiors are a perfect reflection of her style of cooking, modern with a touch of classic. Elegant yet casual, this upbeat dessert bar immediately transports you to an upscale New York City neighbourhood bistro, a combination of leisure and luxury. To make it an absolutely immersive experience, visitors will have a view of Chef Freny’s expertise as she plates and decorates her edible art creations.
With desserts at the center stage, Monèr shines bright in the spotlight, under the meticulous and imaginative Chef Freny Fernandes.
