With the ever flourishing hotel industry in Delhi, one
name or rather I should say one brand of hotels is trusted and recommended by
every Delhiite – Radisson BLU which fondly is still referred to as Radisson by
a majority of people. This chain of hotels has been there for years and
promises variety and class. It has a very warm and cosy feel to it and its
lavish food spreads in each of its restaurants always succeeds in pulling
crowds through the doors.
NYC – a 24 hour coffee shop at Radisson Blu, Mahipalpur,
New Delhi which offers multi cuisine delicacies was our pit stop this weekend.
As we walked into the place beaming with sunlight entering through the huge
glass panes, our eyes started sparkling and what added to this ambience was
their Wine Wall.
We kick started our lunch with a variety of starters; at
the interactive cooking station the chef tossed some corn kernels with bell
peppers with a pinch of black pepper in it ; refreshing and appetizing. Next in
line were the starters everybody is familiar with; marinated cottage cheese,
fried crusted mushrooms and potato. They also served shrimps, but what stood
out in the range of starters was a ham and pineapple roll; fresh and yummmm….
NYC has also introduced a special spread of
salad/ raw food bar, designed for the health conscious. Salad platters and individual
pre-portioned salads are displayed for both vegetarians and non-vegetarians
separately, offers freshness; it is beautiful to look at and also worth
Chicken and asparagus salad was fresh and
light and they had many other options in salads as well.
NYC everyday serves a new cuisine with other
general dishes as well.The buffet besides this everyday puts up its Indian
cuisine as well. From stews, coconut rice and fried potato to Dal makhani, Biryani
and our all-time favourite paneer; the buffet had it all. On one hand the
spread had a variety of options for the main course like spaghetti and pastas
too; the taste was not extraordinary. It was a little disappointing as most of
the dishes were those with which almost everyone is familiar and so was the
taste. But , usually these dishes are run of the mill at most of the places as
they have become a part and parcel of our regular eating fare.
We then walked towards the dessert counter,
it was like a paradise with a variety of pastries, panna cotta, cakes, pudding
and even a chocolate fountain on display!! The desserts nullified the
experience of the main course as we dipped our marshmallows in the chocolate.
The star was the fig and honey ice cream; it was actually addictive specially
ordered for us by the most charming Ms. Ritul Yadav (Mgr. Mktg and Comm.)
All in all it was a good experience. NYC
also offers breakfast as well as a dinner buffet. If you are looking for a
restaurant with a warm feel to it and some comforting food, walk into NYC @
Radisson BLU today.
