The launch of Mosaic (under the Live In Cafe banner), a food and music festival, has given musicians something to cheer about. Launched by foodie and musician Nondon Bagchi, the event was made memorable with a short but fun gig featuring musicians Sukanti Roy, Rahul Guha Roy, Indrajit Dey and Rhythm Shaw, who were joined by percussionist Bickram Ghosh.

“There wasn’t any space for teetotallers like us… people who don’t party. Here we can sip regular coffee and enjoy live music. Hence this venture with Bickram Ghosh’s Live In series,” said Pooja Baid, the owner of the Judges Court Road outlet of Piccadilly Square where the event took place on Friday.

Even if music is not your thing, go for the food. Tuck into cheese fondue (Fans of Fondue) or a Swiss raclette (Rhythm of Raclette), which is a treat of grilled vegetables covered with molten cheese. The menu, available for the next three months, also includes comfort food like soups and warm salads, from Broccoli and Pepper Soup to warm Brussels Sprout and Asparagus Salad. Also available are innovative dishes like Rock and Roll Lasagna (lasagna sheets wrapped around vegetables, topped with cheese and Mariana sauce) and Macaroni Medley tart (regular macaroni and cheese with sun-dried tomatoes and a baked tart).

The afternoon also saw the launch of the second edition of the cafe’s glossy tabloid planned around the theme of music and food. The festival will feature live gigs by new talents at this outlet every Friday.

A meal for two costs about Rs 600 (plus taxes).
