In 2011, Cardoz competed in and won Season 3 of "Top Chef Masters". Bravo mourned the death of the chef in a statement Wednesday. "It is sad to share that chef floyd Cardozo". A week after taking action over his symptoms, the Top Chef Masters star has passed away. "He was thoughtful, kind and his smile illuminated a room", a spokesperson said.

The Twitter account for "Top Chef" offered condolences and called Cardoz an "inspiration to chefs around the world".

"Floyd Cardoz made us all proud", Top Chef host and judge Padma Lakshmi tweeted. His spirit of openness, collaboration and playfulness has permeated his restaurants here - and for this, too, we owe Floyd a great deal of gratitude.

Floyd Cardoz was an influential chef who married regional Indian cuisine with French and new American flavors. Hospitality, announced that he died from complications from COVID-19 on Wednesday at Mountainside Medical Center in Montclair, N.J.

According to experts, people over 60 and those who are immunocompromised continue to be the most at risk. Elba said: "One of the upsides of this whole drama is that we are forced to think together as a race".

Cardoz admitted himself to the hospital on March 17 after feeling feverish. However, his condition did worsen, and he was admitted into a hospital closer to home.

"Sincere apologies everyone. I am sorry for causing undue panic around my earlier post". There was, after all, double cause for celebration that afternoon: Floyd and his partners were also ready to open the doors to the all-new The Bombay Sweet Shop, a modern mithai "factory and cafe" in Byculla. "There is so much to learn from what he has helped put together", said Manish Mehrotra, corporate chef, Indian Accent restaurants. He opened a string of acclaimed restaurants in both NY and Mumbai - and became a TV star along the way.

He later opened Pao Walla in New York City's Soho neighborhood, and followed that up with Bombay Bread Bar, which closed past year.

Gurbaxish Kohli, the vice-president of the Federation of Hotel and Restaurant Association of India and president of Hotel and Restaurant Association of Western India, said Cardoz was a good chef and the fraternity will miss him.

Born in Mumbai, Cardoz spent his formative years in Goa and began his culinary career in Manhattan.
