Comorin (two horizon center, golf course road, gurgaon)

In a NUtshell Being a big fan of Indian accent, went here with huge hopes (chef manish Mehrotra is common to both) – impressed but nowhere close to Indian accent, as different as Honda city & an entry level mercedes. Must mention that this restaurant is much cheaper than Indian accent but that does not make a difference to me. I judge the food based … Continue reading Comorin (two horizon center, golf course road, gurgaon)

The Potbelly Rooftop cafe & Kitchen (116 C, 4th Floor, Shahpur Jat, New Delhi )

In a nutshell:

Excellent Bihari food served in a nice setting by pretty warm people – I developed a small temporary potbelly as I walked out of this place after eating loads of irresistible food.

Good place to catch up with friends, a lunch date or just a nice place to hang around.

Short Description – in case u r in a hurry:

Like in all other restaurants , I visited this place in anonymity. The climb to the 4th floor thru narrow bright colored (bordering garish) was the only disgusting part. Once up there, it was really enjoyable. I was appreciating the way in which a simple property has been converted to a nice restaurant seemingly without too much expenditure.

The floor extends to both sides of the staircase. On the Dining Hall to the right, there is a non alcoholic bar:) area – actually a serving counter.

On the left side there is a small dining area that also leads to a open air area in 3rd floor. The walls r all glass & that makes it good due to plenty of light & also good view outside. The decor of the open air area is good with a great view as well.

The furniture is mix & match – no two chairs around a table r the same. On the wall hang loads of empty frames sans pictures.

The menu card is very colorful & quite informative as well – good explanation to the names of the dishes.

Passion for excellence exudes – I felt this throughout during our lunch at Potbelly. Without the passion, all items ordered during a particular meal cannot b simultaneously good.
