Running a restaurant is no cakewalk

If you really don’t like someone, they say, you should encourage them to open a restaurant. Nevertheless, even though they knew very little about the business, Gauri Devidayal and Jay Yousuf
jumped into the deep end and opened “The Table”, their popular flagship restaurant in Mumbai in early 2011.

The tell-all book titled “Diamonds for Breakfast”, is a wonderful romp through their years of running one of the city’s favourite restaurants with all the highs and lows. Co-authored by Gauri and journalist Vishwas Kulkarni, the book is an insider’s take on the F&B business and a great read to boot. It is available to order on Amazon, costing Rs. 495
