Boston MA, (Spring 2009): Restaurateurs Mark Raab and Hemant Chowdhry are pleased to announce the one year anniversary of BanQ Restaurant & Bar in the beautifully renovated Penny Savings Bank in Boston’s South End. This celebration is highlighted by the recent announcement of BanQ being named «Best New Restaurant» in the world by the internationally acclaimed Wallpaper Magazine.

«We are so happy to be celebrating our first year and truly honored to have received this award,» says Co-Owner Mark Raab. «We are thrilled to be recognized internationally, but truly we are a neighborhood restaurant first and are beyond excited to share this with the South End – and Boston.» Additionally, «the food at BanQ has never been better and the restaurant has truly found its stride,» says Co-Owner Chowdhry.

Co-owners Raab and Chowdhry brought Chef Ranveer Brar to Boston (from Claridges Hotel) to head up the restaurant’s innovative kitchen. Chef Brar has incorporated various influences from his training in Singapore, London and India to create the restaurant’s South East Asian and French menu, which continues to entice neighborhood patrons and foodies alike. BanQ’s sophisticated yet innovative space, designed by the award winning design group, Office dA, takes full advantage of the soaring ceilings and other architectural details found in the Classical Revival building constructed in 1917.

During BanQ’s first year the restaurant has been featured in numerous publications in the Boston area press.
