Indian-born global chef Floyd Cardoz passed away in the United States, according to AVS TV.

Chef Floyd Cardoz, who tested positive for Covid-19, died of the infection in a hospital in New Jersey on Wednesday, his family confirmed.

In his last Instagram post, Floyd gave followers a glimpse into his health struggles while posting a photo from the hospital room. "I was feeling feverish and hence as a precautionary measure, admitted myself into hospital in NY", he wrote, adding he "was hugely anxious about my state of health".

"Sincere apologies everyone. I am sorry for causing undue panic around my earlier post". A product of IHM Dadar, Mumbai's hotel management school, Chef Cardoz successfully ran New York's acclaimed, Tabla restaurant for 12 years before it shut down in 2010. He later tested positive for COVID-19.

Floyd Cardoz, Culinary Director of Mumbai's popular restaurant "The Bombay Canteen" dies due to Coronavirus. "As a precautionary measure we have informed the Health Department in Mumbai about the same", it said. "Floyd made us all so proud".

The "Top Chef Masters" star's death was confirmed to Indian media outlet, Scroll.in, with members of his family saying Floyd died Wednesday at a facility in New Jersey - where he'd been getting treated upon returning from an global trip to Mumbai earlier this month. Cardoz also ran the hugely popular Bombay Bread Bar - originally called Paowalla, a throwback to his origins in Mumbai's Goan Catholic community - from 2016 to September a year ago. "I wish his personal and restaurant family all the strength in the world in this hard time".

According to Harper Collins, which published "One Spice, Two Spice", Cardoz was born in then Bombay and raised in there and in Goa. He was recently in Mumbai for the fifth-anniversary celebration of the restaurant and the opening of brand's sweet shop. He also won Top Chef Masters Season 3 in 2011. He later went on to open the Bombay Bread Bar and Paowalla, both in Manhattan. It was clear that Cardoz took pride, rightfully, in what he had built in the country and the city of his birth in addition to his legacy in New York City. During the course of his career, which took him to the kitchens behind Manhattan's elite fine dining scene, he was celebrated for bringing a new style of Indian cuisine to the city.
