The Living Room, also known by the moniker TLR, is seriously alternative. It started out as a restaurant with charmingly mismatched furniture, but has since become a club for non-commercial musicians to jam. On performance nights, the people that you'll see here look like exotic birds of paradise. The interiors look effortlessly put together and the tables and chairs are all mismatched. It looks like someone's Living Room, and you can stay for as long as you like, sipping their addictive smoothies (try the Guava and Yoghurt), using the free wi-fi and treating the place as you would your own Living Room. One wishes the food and service matched the place. Alas! The menu is regular restaurant fare, somewhat out of place in the surroundings. Still, it gets its patrons because of the music rather than the food.rnrnBar ReviewrnrnBuzz: 3.5 / 5 Service: 0 / 5 Decor: 3 / 5rnrn-By Deepali GuptarnrnA haunt for all things cool, eclectic and indie - The Living Room Cafe or TLR is really like gate crashing a party in someone's living room. One of the original spots that heralded the revival of the village, TLR might be spread over two and a half floors (the half being the terrace), but it manages to retain the intimate vibe of a much smaller space. A recent facelift has upgraded their decor, though the changes are lost on regulars who flock here on gig nights with people spilling onto the balconies and strangers rubbing shoulders as they try to juggle their drinks. TLR is where you go to become part of a crowd that chugs, laughs and dances to a collective beat - either being churned out from a DJ console or being crooned by a band. In cocktails, the Rum Punch served in an Old Monk bottle is a fun order for the table, while the Dirty Diana and Mojitos are popular and the Sangria completely avoidable. They also stock a range of gourmet beers. In eats, try the Mushroom Duplex and Grilled Prawns. Playing everything from reggae to jazz, blues to folk - every night at TLR is a new experience.

An all vegetarian restaurant in an all vegetarian hotel. India's only vegetarian hotel is a 15 minute drive from East Delhi. The coffee shop serves all three meals buffet style only.

Atmospherics

Being a Country Inn and Suites, this branch in Sahibabad is located on a main road and is easy to locate as well as being a short distance from East Delhi. No meat or eggs pass the doors of this hotel, so it is a real boon for strict vegetarians, but the main advantage is how tasty the food is. And the lobby, lobby cafe and chocolate boutique look quite as plush as any other international hotel, without any trace of ethnicity.

Table Talk

A salad counter with Lebanese and western flavours, a live pasta counter and a live chaat counter. You'll even get kanji at this unusual all-day diner. It's where Indian and international flavours blend together easily. Surprisingly, the western preparations are of a high quality, though expectedly the desi tastes are taken to new heights. The actual dishes that make up the buffet change from meal to meal, but a few things to look out for are the salad of palm hearts napped with kashundi and the tabbouleh. The curd rice would give an Udupi joint a run for its money. The starter section has a range of nibbles that include chana kulcha, crisp fried paneer, golden corn nibblets and arbi tikkis with a tongue-tingling masala. The thin crust pizza served by the slice looked exciting enough, but the chaat counter beckoned, with palak patta or kareli ki chaat, dahi bhalla and gol gappas. As at a street-side stall, you can wash down the gol gappas with the pani. Usually, hotels are the last place to go for chaat, but 64/6 has, by some alchemy, managed to imbue it and the chana kulcha, with the flavours of the street.

Main courses include a live dal counter where the chef prepares the tadka of your choice, a couple of lack-lustre western dishes and an idli-dosa counter with excellent podis. Do tuck in to the sarson ka saag when available. It is served with white butter and gur.nnDesserts include unlimited quantities of fruit like kiwi and dragon fruit, ice-creams, murabbas and western style mousses and three sugar-free options.
