Taj Hotel Denies NYC Varq Rumor
Earlier this week we told you that Varq, the fine dining Indian restaurant in New Delhi's Taj Hotel, might be coming to New York. The Taj's corporate chef, Hemant Oberoi, mentioned as much to Food and Wine editor Jen Murphy.
Alas, we heard back from reps at the Taj Hotel who say that there are no "immediate" plans to open a Varq in New York. When asked why Oberoi might say something different, they responded that "this is just an idea and no concrete steps have been taken yet."
