Famed chef Floyd Cardoz died on Wednesday at age 59 due to coronavirus at New Jersey's Mountainside Medical Centre, a spokesperson for his Hunger Inc. Hospitality group tells The Hollywood Reporter.

"It is with deep sorrow that we inform you of the passing away of Chef Floyd Cardoz 59 years, Co-Founder, Hunger Inc.

Floyd tested positive for Covid 19, in USA, on March 18 and was being treated for the same at Mountainside Medical Centre, New Jersey, USA."

Cardoz — who, in India, owned The Bombay Canteen, O Pedro and the Bombay Sweet Shop —was admitted to the hospital with a fever last week and later tested positive for coronavirus.

Not long after he was hospitalized, Cardoz took to Instagram to share more about his heh. "Sincere apologies everyone. I am sorry for causing undue panic around my earlier post. I was feeling feverish and hence as a precautionary measure, admitted myself into hospital in New York," he wrote, adding he "was hugely anxious about my state of heh."

Cardoz was known for winning Bravo's third season of Top Chef Masters in 2011. The network mourned his death in a statement that read, "Bravo and the Top Chef family are deeply saddened by the passing of Chef Floyd Cardoz. Floyd was a talented chef who competed and won  Top Chef Masters. He was thoughtful, kind and his smile illuminated a room. He was an inspiration to chefs around the world and we offer our deepest sympathy to his family and friends."

Cardoz's career kicked off in his native Mumbai, where he attended culinary school and interned in the kitchen of the Taj Mahal Intercontinental Hotel. He also studied in Switzerland before taking his talents to New York. It was there that he made a name for himself as the executive chef of the popular restaurant Tabla, where he reinvented New Indian cuisine.

Cardoz later served as the executive chef of North End Grill, part of Danny Meyer's elite portfolio of restaurants under Union Square Hospitality. In 2019, he announced his new position as vp of culinary with the Estiatorio Milos Group.

Following the news of his death, several notable culinary figures took to social media to share their condolences.

"Love you so much @floydcardoz," Meyer wrote on Twitter, while Top Chef host Padma Lakshmi tweeted, "@floydcardoz made us all so proud. Nobody who lived in NY in the early aughts could forget how delicious and packed Tabla was. He had an impish smile, an innate need to make those around him happy, and a delicious touch. This is a huge loss..."

The U.S. is only behind China and Italy in the number of confirmed coronavirus cases, with 55,243 infections, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University. More than 800 people have died.
