Lofty ceilings and prints, and portraits on the walls give 1911 a historical air. Though there’s nothing on the menu that is actually a heritage dish that dates back to the opening of the hotel, you will certainly be visiting for the timeless elegance from the Raj era. It’s the ambience that wins every time and, of course, the central location in the heart of Lutyens’ Delhi. Their lunch-time buffet is attractively laid out. Other things to look out for on the menu are Chicken Imperial and Croque Monsieur — two of the best-sellers. In fact, just sitting here surrounded by history is a pleasant way to spend an afternoon. During the winter months, chairs and tables are laid out in the lawns, making it one of the most evocative experiences you can have in the city.

Dusty old Maharajas have always made great drinking buddies and 1911 is unapologetically devoted to them. Housed in Delhi’s oldest hotels, The Imperial, the easy-going bar with its stained glass roof and its wooden furniture feels more like the living room of a Maharaja than a watering hole with art and history milling the walls. The liquor menu is expansive serving over 500 varieties of spirits and when you order their signature drink Chak De Phatte (a concoction of gin, rum, vodka, scotch, tequila and Cointreau) — the server politely warns you of its potency. That cocktail goes straight to your head and while 1911 might not be a hip-hop playing nightclub, they sure know how to kick start an evening. Also serving a near-perfect Bellini, the bar is one of the few in the city that still boasts of two private rooms — Hardinge Room and the Lutyens and Baker Room. That however isn’t the best part; this bar’s USP are the servers who are always eager to strike up a conversation. Though the kitchen does a great Smoked Salmon, 1911’s must have is the melt-in-your-mouth Murgh Malai Tikka that they’ve been serving up for the good part of a century.

EXOTIC EASTER FARE Easter brunch at 1911 on 5th April 2015 Easter specials at La Baguette till 5th April 2015 Easter Sunday is upon us and it brings along a plethora of dining options in the city. 1911 at the classy Imperial is having an Easter Brunch this Sunday and going by the food I sampled there yesterday, is unmissable. Other than the traditional Easter grub, Chef Vishal has laid out many Mediterranean dishes that liven up the menu. There is a pineapple Gazpacho is a refreshing departure from the tomato base and the smoked paprika gives it a spicy kick. One of my favourite dishes will be the Prawn Escabeche. Again a departure from ceviche, this flavourful dish has a special blend of flavours in the marinade, giving it a deliciously sharp tang. For the vegetarians, I will recommend the stuffed artichokes. These are high quality spanish artichoke hearts covered in a delicious spinach filling. Creamy and flavourful this will satiate most meat lovers too. I loved the lamb chops on polenta. The braising (as opposed to just roasting) makes the lamb deliciously moist. I must write about the polenta as even on its own it was smashing. Tossed in just some parmesan and olive oil it highlighted Chef Vishal's philosophy of rustic, simply cooked but delicious dishes. The other two standouts were the Confit of chicken and the Veg lasagne. The chicken was moist beyond belief and combine that with streaks of perfectly cooked bacon made the dish very special indeed. Among the many desserts, the macaroons were truly special. I'd be hard pressed to find better macaroons in the city, an absolute treat. For chocolate lovers there is the chocolate verrine, basically a superb chocolate mousse with a dark chocolate syrup spooned on top. Sinful and indulgent, this kind of stuff is what Easter is made up of. Executive Chef Vishal Atreya is planning to have a spread of nearly 70 delectable dishes so round up your family (or brunch crew) and head here to get your fix of eggs, chocolate, leg of lamb and bloody marys.

This landmark restaurant of, the fame of which crosses borders, has received more awards and hosted more international dignitaries than any other in India. Almost three decades after its inception, the formula remains untouched: rustic simplicity with low seating, an air of easy informality and North India's first open kitchen. It has an intentionally compact menu consisting of ten non-vegetarian and six vegetarian

This place has one of the best and traditional North Indian delicacies. Decor and ambiance is great and seating on couches is very convenient. the preparations are very authentic and the fans will not be disappointed! the food and the drinks are very nice! The service and the ambiance is decent. however i would say the service is a tad bit slow.

A wonderful joint and an ambience that lasts for long. Both appear on the surface to have the patina of age, yet both conceal a surprisingly nouvelle touch. It shows in the decor that uses elements of mirror work on the arches and walls. The modern face of the food lies in the generous offerings for vegetarians: Guchchi Sabz-e-Zar is unmissable. Though there are biryanis and what is undoubtedly the finest Kakori in the National Capital Region, newer dishes have been created, especially Kham Khatai and Maash Qaliyai. Murgh Chandi Tikka has silver leaf on the dough, which incredibly doubles up as a tasty roti and a naan. I would love to come here again and again.
