Kolkata, Mar 20 : Speciality Restaurants Limited Managing Director Anjan Chatterjee on Tuesday announced the opening of an outdoor catering service Mobifeast here.

Chatterjee also informed that Specialty Restaurants brands of Mainland China, Oh! Calcutta has been opened in Dhaka, Singapore and London.
Mezzuna - the breakfast-to-dinner casual restaurant serving Mediterranean cuisine, following its success in Pune will be launched in Kolkata within the next couple of months, he noted.
"Mezzuna will cater to the young nocturnal people. It will sport the bar and kitchen that are trends of go-young Indians. If they come here to have breakfast, by spending near about 200-300 rupees they can get a wholesome breakfast," he told media.
Chatterjee added, "To enter a global region like Persian Gulf was not easy, unless you have a good compatible partner to have joint venture. Already we have 7-8 restaurants are there. Rest we are planning to set up very soon and is under ongoing process."
As an upcoming project, Speciality Restaurants Limited is gearing up to rebrand Flames & Grill as Global Grill to cater to global cuisine.
