Jaideep is a firm believer and a strong proponent of sustainable farming, procurement and cooking and uses seasonal and hyper-local produce in his menus.

Jaideep is adept at various international cuisines, however his latest project has been to travel and research local and regional cooking and food, and incorporate these influences in his menus. He brings the same influences to the menu offerings at RR, focusing on international favorites and hyper-local/micro-regional food influences with a strong accent on sustainability and seasonality.
