This May, The Signature Startup Masterclass present the success story of Riyaaz Amlani, the famous Restaurateur. Listen to his success story in his own words at Khar Social on 29th of May. If you’ve visited any outlet of Mocha, seen an illustration at Smoke House Deli, eaten a pizza at Stone Water Grill, danced next to the NYC skyline projection at the erstwhile Shroom or kindled your senses with the stripped down quirks at Social, then you must have known who Riyaaz Malani is.

Riyaaz Amlani is a thorough homebred restaurateur and he’s one of the youngest of the lot as well. He has been honored of the ‘Best Restaurateur’ award accorded to him by the Time Out Food Awards 2011. With no previous experience in the restaurant business, he co-founded Impresario Entertainment & Hospitality Pvt. Ltd. with Mocha — Coffees and Conversations as the first business enterprise back in 2001. After consolidating the brand, Impresario, he then ventured into fine-dining with Salt Water Grill, Stone Water Grill, Del Italia and Smoke House Grill. Soon after followed the all-day café formats of Salt Water Café, Smoke House Deli as well as Bespoke Café. In the meantime, the legendary Prithvi Café and the first-of-its-kind wine café The Tasting Room were also developed as collaborative spaces, and the company’s first contemporary Indian restaurant Le Kebabiere came about. Having sold shoes as a teenager, Riyaaz completed his education in UCLA with a Masters in Entertainment Management. Paving his way through the business, he soon started working as the entertainment consultant for many location-based entertainment centers. During this period, he contributed to the building of India’s leading Family Entertainment Centers as well as set up a wellness centre. He soon took over the reins of a leading media company, but gave it all up on a hunch of opening a café that offered an experience beyond the ordinary.
