Meet Tushar, owner of Harvest Bistro located in downtown Madison, New Jersey. Tushar believes in meaning and creativity not only in his everyday life but also at the hands of his cuisine and business. Growing up with his parents and preparing home-cooked meals together was just the start of a long successful journey for Tushar’s passion with cooking. Family and cooking are two things that go hand in hand for Tushar, both of which are evident in his business to this day.

With meaning and creativity being a significant focus, it has allowed Tushar to build a menu so diverse. Harvest Bistro uses inspiration from international flavors while taking an American approach to offer endless options for customers with different preferences. Tushar believes the greatest reward of his work is to see the elated expressions from delighted customers when they taste his cuisine. He creates original food you'll want to share with the people you love.
Harvest Bistro has not always been what it is today. Tushar opened a delicatessen in 1996 which was previously known as “On a Roll” and operated for over 20 years. Although, after going through a difficult period of time and putting in a tremendous amount of hard work, Tushar wanted to figure out what he truly wanted with his restaurant. He found that encompassing and celebrating the changing seasons for himself, both personally and professionally, were most important to him. With that, he was dedicated to rebranding the business to become more unique and meaningful. The rebranding has given Harvest Bistro endless opportunities especially with catering for events. Over time catering has become a big hit which has influenced the restaurant to create new hours. These new hours allow Harvest Bistro to properly serve customers both in the restaurant, and for outside catering events. The success of Tushar Patel and his business has led Harvest Bistro to be recognized as a high-quality restaurant and caterer known for its eclectic menu, inspired cuisine, and flavorful food.
