Interiors-151

Gone are the days when dining out only meant going out to a nice restaurant, finding a cosy spot for the family, ordering the traditional menu that we habitually used to abide by on every outing, eat with some chit chat, conclude the meal with a glass of soda or saunf and come back happily ever after. With the globalisation being on a fast track, it is just not the meal but a summary of a few elements that decide for us if a restaurant stands as a one-time experience or goes a longer way on becoming a regular dining hotspot.

Can’t say much about other countries of India, but Delhi definitely is on a fast pace, with customers demanding ‘out of the box’ dining experiences. People are not only open to the idea of trying out a new dish, but are also expanding their taste versatility with various traditional and experimental cuisines becoming a thing!

#1 The Dalal Concept

Cafe Dalal Street is inspired by the stock exchange norms of India and derives its name from the ‘Dalal Street’ of Mumbai where all stock market traditions take place. A genius concept of Himanshu Gupta and Vidit Gupta, the theme of a stock market platform has been designated to the bar of Cafe Dalal Street as well.

The concept comprises of fluctuation in the prices of in-house cocktails & mocktails, with respect to its supply and demand.

#2 The Dalal Decor

The interiors play a crucial role in bringing the theme to life. Decor has been customised keeping in mind the old style setup of Indian stock exchange office. Benches spread across the main floor with each table having a display screen, featuring the stock bars for each of their in-house drinks. You can either strike a good drinks deal or miss the fluctuation with just a few hundreds. This engaging concept and spacious seating arrangements will ensure customers staying back for a longer period of time.

#3 The Butter Chicken GolGappa

Anything and everything to do with Butter Chicken is always a big hit with me. I have seen plenty of restaurants doing Butter Chicken pizzas and khichdis, but this is the first time that I have tasted Golgappas filled with chunks of chicken and the curry. As much as the whole concept of making your own Golgappas is exhilarating, the combination too stands out amongst an array of snackers that the restaurant has to offer.
