One of the most renowned and loved places of Mumbai comes to Delhi. Indigo comes to Delhi!
With a property that can easily be placed into the 'Best Restaurant Locations of New Delhi', they have hit a jackpot. This flagship brand of deGustibus Hospitality has gone all out with their location, and I can say with guarantee that it's going to be one of the most frequented places for Delhiites who are in love with breathtaking outdoor/open air seating for restaurants. The restaurant spans across two floors, and both floors have an outdoor as well as an indoor seating.
The event was a launch for media people and socialites over a lavish laidback brunch, something I will definitely be going back for before the Delhi winters bid adieu to us. White wine and red wine sangrias, mojitos and martinis, sipping on these delicious drinks - that is what brunches are for, and that is what was totally the highlight of the afternoon for me.
Their food was par excellence, but that was expected as no place would like to go wrong with their food on the day of the launch itself. Coming from a brand like Indigo and Rahul Akerkar, they could definitely not afford this. Starters were being served on rotation and for mains and desserts they had a superb buffet laid out.
The Tandoori Prawns, the Pork Belly, the Chicken Malai Tikka were my favourites amongst the starters. Delicious stuff!
The mains consisted of a live grill that had lamb chops, pork chops, sausages, paneer, mushrooms, broccoli and other mouth-watering things, and a live counter for eggs where you could choose your cheeses and other add ons like chorizo, various types of diced chicken chunks, and the basic veggie toppings. In their buffet my favourite picks were the seafood paella, lasagna and lamb curry.
The dessert counter attracted people like honey attracts bees. Live pancakes and waffles counter that saw people loading their plates with the superlative maple syrup and butter, a gooey chocolate cake, their classic Crème brûlée,.macarons, puddings, mousses, cakes - and all of these desserts being so nice!
To give the people a feel of the place and set the mood, they had a live band playing, the staff was always found with a smile on their face, the ambience of the place is anyway their USP, and the food was really good too.
I will not be able to comment on the food and service of the restaurant from a customer's point of view as this was a launch party, but I will definitely be going back here as a normal customer to experience the real food and service, and of course, to enjoy their outdoor seating.
