“I was feeling feverish and hence as a precautionary measure, admitted myself into hospital in New York,” the chef said. “I was hugely anxious about my state of health and my post was highly irresponsible causing panic in several quarters.”

Cardoz made his mark in the New York restaurant scene after opening Tabla, a fine dining Indian restaurant in 1998, Eater New York wrote. At the time, there weren’t many high-end Indian restaurants. Tabla was groundbreaking, garnering three stars from the New York Times. It closed in 2010, but it was a favorite among its cult foodies, who will always remember Tabla for its bread.

For Cardoz, it wasn’t just about how good the food tasted. “Good food is not only about how it looks on the plate,” the chef told People magazine in 2015. “It’s about how good it makes the person eating it feel.”

Cardoz went to culinary school in Mumbai and interned at the Taj Mahal Intercontinental Hotel. He studied hotel management in Switzerland and attended the culinary school Les Roches.
