A favourite with many Chennaites, 601, the funkily done up Coffee Shop at The Park has maintained its quality right through the years. Its open decor is inviting and its name is easy to remember. Late night diners, especially those on a budget, think its burgers are 'awesome', while its seafood platter goes down easily with cocktails. At meal times, the buffet has a new Deli counter that serves up some Sushi, open sandwiches in multigrain bread, salads, sprouts and so much more that it could be your only destination for an entire meal. But, remember, the buffet has a lot to offer. With any luck, the Madras Fish Curry will be on the buffet. Its tamarind tanginess goes fabulously with steamed rice. While each dish is highly recommended, the chefs at 601 whip up some fabulous pizzas that are legendary. Interestingly, the bread selection comes with a dip - the South Indian Karuvapalai Podi mixed in olive oil. Whoever thought such a blatant combination of ordinary typicals would inspire the taste buds into asking for more? Pasta cravings are satiated at the live counter. A must try is the fusilli with roasted veggies in pesto sauce and penne with smoked chicken, sundried tomato and cream. Whatever else you may eat, do leave a little space for dessert. 601 offers the sugarfree variety (you will never know the difference) for those who want to cut down on sugar.

Everyone should try out 601. The food, ambiance and crowd is too good.
