Chef Eric McCarthy
Chef Eric McCarthy started his journey from Goa, India. After graduating from the Institute of Hotel Management, Eric trained at the Taj Group of Hotels in India. With a dream of traveling and working around the world he joined a cruise line, which gave him exposure to various international cuisines. He built his knowledge in different cooking styles ranging from Caribbean to French, from Spanish to Chinese. He then ventured to come to New York where he began his journey in an Indian restaurant as an Executive chef. Over the last 15 years Eric has been successful in starting many Indian restaurants and elevating Indian food in NYC to a different level. He has created dishes that have his trademark style and often featured in magazines and cookbooks.
His creativity and unique style has brought amble exposure. His “Phaal” curry got him theNew York Times 2 Star and was featured on “The late Night Show with Jay Leno” for the hottest curry. He has been featured in “Time Out Magazine” in New York, India abroad, Dinner Journal. He has also been a part of the Food Network Show “Chopped”where he was one the finalists.
Chef McCarthy’s greatest achievement has been getting the Michelin Star Award for three consecutive years in a row.
Eric is now an integral part of Tulsi. Eric is inspired by his journey that began when he saw his mom cooking in Goa to the foods that he has been exposed to through his travels and of course New York City. The menu therefore has a refreshing twist while keeping the authenticity of the flavors.
We invite you to come join us at Tulsi and taste these creations.
