BALLANTYNE | faces NISHAL SETHI Birthplace: Toronto. Job: Owner, Bombay Grille Indian Restaurant. What do you like most about your job? Networking. What's your guilty pleasure? Ketchup chips, and Aero chocolate bars. Do you live in Ballantyne? Moved here in 2000 to open Bombay Grille. What is your favorite Ballantyne-area restaurant? No brainer. Gallery Restaurant in The Ballantyne Hotel & Lodge. The chefs know how to prepare extra spicy entrees for me. What is your favorite outdoor activity? Golf. I love to play at The Golf Club at Ballantyne, and I can't leave out Quail Hollow Club playing in the pro-am at the Wells Fargo Championship. Describe your dream vacation. I had my dream vacation in Anguilla at the Cap Juluca Resort. We came out of our room directly onto sandy beaches and crystal clear water. There was someone filling our glasses when they were half empty, a swim-up bar — and I can't leave out the great food. The service and peacefulness made it a dream vacation. Whoa — also my wife was there with me, too. What is your favorite news source? Fox News, seven days a week. I would be rather caught dead than wear ____. Loafers or a dress. What charitable organizations are you involved with? I am involved with over a half a dozen charitable foundations. The Autism Society of North Carolina is my favorite, but I also love donating to our schools. What is your biggest pet peeve? People with drama — hate it, hate it. What is a hidden gem in Ballantyne? On the Roxx lounge. It has great bartenders and music, and is a nice place to chill after work or spend time on weekends with good friends. Share something that someone would never guess about you. My age is 39. No one ever believes me. 32 BALLANTYNE MAGAZINE WINTER 2012-2013
