Back in April 2020, renowned celebrity chef, Floyd Cardoz, who was the Culinary Director of The Bombay Canteen, passed away due to coronavirus infection. He visited India in February to celebrate the anniversary of their venture and also launch another food retail unit called the Bombay Sweet Shop. Upon returning to the US, he tested positive and was being treated at a hospital in New Jersey.

Besides this, another Mumbai-based restaurant 'Yauatcha' also stopped home delivery as one of their team members tests positive for coronavirus. The team at KA Hospitality took to Instagram to share the news and said that they were currently tracing and identifying customers and delivery staff as orders were delivered in many areas between Colaba and Andheri.
