Artusi Ristorante

Artusi Ristorante is a charming, elegant Italian fine dining restaurant is located in GK2 M-block Market.  This restaurant embraces the culture, the traditions and the cuisine of the EMILIA- ROMAGNA region, a beautiful part of north-eastern ITALY. It is the home of famous products used in fine dining around the world.

The interiors of the restaurant are radiant and very well done which sets you in the right mood along with a rich and sophisticated atmosphere. The décor is minimal & classy, with white & yellow being the dominating colour. We were served an assortment of fresh breads along with a glass of nice white wine while we went through their elaborated menu. Their menu is vast with a lot of options to choose from.

The traditional way for italians to eat their meals differs from the ways a meal is consumed in the most other parts of the word. Italians eat many sequential courses of smaller sizes. They often start their meal with an Antipasto or an Aperitivo. A stimulating Italian Aperitivo cocktail or a glass of sparkling wine is very common and often paired. Italians do not have a main course. Instead they have a First course and Second course followed by a savoury cheese platter, or a sweet dessert.

Their pastas are hand-rolled and hand-cut daily, you can choose from various assortment of pasta. The best part is breads, dips, sauces —everything is made in-house, and you can surely tell. The restaurant has a courteous staff and they make sure that the customers have a complete fine dine experience. But the highlight of Artusi is the authentic Italian food. It will show up at your table perfectly cooked, just the right temperature, full of flavour with a superb presentation.

The service was outstanding throughout our dining experience- the servers were very polite without being overbearing, each dish was explained to us properly and excellent suggestions were given to us whenever we had asked for it. Yes, the prices are on a higher side, but the quality of the food, the service, and the ambience totally justifies the high prices and it is definitely worth it.

OH MY GANNA!

Healthy snacking is fastly catching pace in the country and has become
an important part of our Lifestyle. This trend is pushing F\B companies to create innovative and better healthy options. Juices are the best way to ensure a healthy snacking habit. Considered as the King of juices, Sugarcane Juice is blessed with extremely high nutritional properties. Indians love their traditional beverage and are crazy for freshly extracted sugarcane juice served in glasses by vendors across the country. But with these available platforms hygiene is the biggest concern along with round the year availability. Taking up the challenge, Nutricane Beverages Pvt. Ltd., a young company committed to creating natural beverages in India announces the launch of its first bottled Sugarcane Juice OMG! (Oh My Ganna) with a non-refrigerated shelf life, same great taste and nutritional values as fresh sugarcane juice without adding any chemical preservatives.
OMG-LogoWith OMG! one should be able to sip a beverage without the guilt of consuming something unhealthy or synthetic, especially when we are blessed with such goodness in nature. OMG! is crafted to deliver our nostalgic memories of sugarcane juice in an innovative form while keeping the essence intact.

OMG! comes in a 250 ml recyclable glass bottle at an attractive price of INR 40/-.The super fluid has hit the market in two avatars –OMG! Cumin Crush – Sugarcane juice with cumin flavor and OMG! Ginger Groove –Sugarcane juice with ginger flavor.

Sugarcane Juice is blessed with extremely high nutritional properties. It can treat Jaundice, beat dehydration, work as a deterrent to fight diseases like cancer, enhances immunity level and is good for glowing skin. If consumed in moderation, Sugarcane Juice is also helpful for diabetic patients. Due to its highly perishable nature, it cannot be preserved beyond a few hours, which has restricted the availability of canned sugarcane juice in India. OMG! will now allow Indian Consumers to enjoy every sip of this superfluid with a promise of hygiene, intact nutritional values and extended shelf life.

LOCAL

Local is the latest addition into Connaught Place. Local challenges to be the cheapest bar in town with a huge seating area. Very rustic on the inside, expect this place to be a badass in its industry. It has a large seating capacity and a dance area, with the DJ set in the middle for when you really want to get your jam on. The food served here is North Indian, Continental and Italian, which is basic.

We used to be a fan of Junkyard Cafe, because of the low rates and high quality of food and drinks, but Local has surpassed everyone. This place has become a heartthrob for Delhiites, because what we want is cheap drinks and saste bills. Their hospitality is too point, even on a saturday when there was an hours awaiting outside, we were happy hogging inside with on time service. Their food quality is great, the quantity will not be an issue, if you are a guy who wants a bowl full of pasta while paying a basic price. Music is the key agenda for this place, all you will hear in EDM or Trance with just a hint of bollywood or punjabi. So put on your party shoes and head to this place for some Botlan Sharab Diyan.

Not to be missed – F & B

  • Lamb Galouti on mini Warki Parantha
  • Kick ass Honey Chilly Potato
  • Arrabiata Pasta
  • Dal Makhni

Pasta Bowl Company

By far this was one of my best authentic Italian Cuisine experience ever since I’ve been eating Italian food. There are so many Italian cuisine chains and joints but none has the Sicilian flair that The Pasta Bowl Company brings to you.
Chef Om is a master at his work and knows such minute details of the food he cooks that the description of all his dishes would make you all excited about the food even before it arrives. Italian cooks rely hugely on the quality of the ingredients that they use rather than an elaborate preparation. Every bite of food here will remind you this and your palate will feel the freshness in everything you eat.

Let me take you through what you “must” have here-
1. Wine: Pinot Bianco Chardonnay (emilia romagna; Italy),Cabernet Merlot (emilia romagna; Italy)

2. Piatto di Antipasto e Formaggi – smoked salmon, Prosciutto di Parma, Honey glazed Ham, Salumi Piccante, Mortadella con pistacchio, smoked scarmoza, granda padana, bocconcini, gorgonzola with accompaniments

3. Bruschetta Cipolla- homemade tuscan bread topped Balsamic onion, goat cheese. While this looks pretty simple but the balsamic onion add magic to this simple thing.

4. Arancini Siciliani- deep fried Arborio rice balls with herbs and melted butter heart that’s more or less a croquette but with a difference that it tastes a thousand times better than any croquettes. Sundried tomato pesto served with it acts as a perfect compliment to this amazingly tasty dish. Trust me you won’t get enough of it.

5. Risotto funghi con olio di tartufo-Portabello and porcini mushroom risotto with truffle oil. This one is highly recommended. One of the finest truffle oil used in this Risotto will leave a taste on your tongue that you won’t want to let go of. I guess “Mamma Mia” is the perfect Italian expression to describe this dish.

6. Cappelletti- artisian hand rolled pasta stuffed with Cream cheese in rustic tomato sauce with dashes of red wine. The tomato sauce really does its magic with the cream cheese.

7. Cannoli- a classic Sicilian dessert. It’s a little tube of fried pastry dough filled with creamy filling of lemon and pistachio and every bite will relish your taste buds with the rich flavour lemon imparts to it.

8. Tiramisu- made with mascarpone ( an Italian cream cheese), coffee, kahlua. You must try this with the Almond biscotti and it will totally enhance your experience. The presentation of course cannot be overlooked.

A person goes to a restaurant either because the food is very good or because the atmosphere is pleasant. And it’s not just all about food here. The interiors are done so elegantly well, it catches your attention instantly. You’d see some classy, rustic and seasoned woodwork all around the place that gives it a quaint look, exquisite chandeliers that enhance the decor with mellow light, comfortable wooden chairs giving it a very casual look. Every detail here has been paid careful attention by the makers and hence all the design elements like the dishes, glasses, cutlery, lighting, apparels etc enrich the restaurants’ interiors with classic details and modern comforts. I totally recommend taking a small walk to this chic place that’s a perfect way to experience Italian culture in India.

Location- GL-201, 2nd Floor, Cross Point Mall, DLF Phase 4, Gurgaon

THE CLASSROOM

The Classroom” is the ideal nostalgic journey to your school days. Old styled blackboards, worn out wooden tables, FLAMES (the game) jolted on stained walls and Ramu Kaka ki Canteen with a section of junk food just like any other school canteen takes us back to our childhood days.

The place is neatly designed and looks superb with desk bench like seating arrangement and aluminium thalis in which the food is served. From notebook style menu to the bar which is named as Ramu Kaka ki Canteen etc, the ambience is really good and you have a big smoking area which also has pool table for your childhood pool playing memories.

The food is good and the menu offers quite a few varieties of different cuisines but the
wheat beer is not that great as we expected. It was too strong and the after taste was not
pleasing for our palate. We ordered a Veg platter and a Non Veg Platter to start with.The
platter is really wholesome especially the Veg platter as they have given different items to indulge in & similarly the Non Veg platter, the Chicken Dimsums are average. Tiramisu was a not great as it was to buttery and lacked the flavours. You won’t either be disappointed or be happy about the food.

The service is prompt ,the staff is attentive and we didn’t find  any drawback which makes this place a nice spot to chill and have some good memories.
