When I started blogging a month ago, I had thought I will share my joy of travel within India.
Never did I think I will write on food or a restaurant within this enormous and bustling metropolis of New Delhi. This is the second of my series on a fabulous HEAVENLY experience. As I said stay ON BOARD.
However I was punched into Heaven this Week and simply had to share the experience. I am not paid or commissioned by anyone for my writings. ( I write this as i have read many such blogs) I blog as I wish to share the joys I experience.
However simply block your Thursday Nights to experience a bit of Heaven.
This little statue of Lord Ganesha is nestled in a fork of a tree at the entrance.
Thursday night was precious as the moon was out in all its glory. We drove down to Qutab Minar (an 11th century Tower of Victory) located in Mehrauli , New Delhi. The drive from Qutab Minar is very interesting as you have many old buildings, restaurants and upscale designer shops along the way. A romantic drive indeed.
Even our destination is christened ONE STYLE MILE.
Olive Bar & Kitchen is a lovely well known eatery and very popular amongst all ( did i say all ,ok rectified to many ) the residents of New Delhi. This enormous Banyan tree is located in the midst of this beautiful house converted into a Mediterranean look restaurant serving ITALIAN food .
However hold on for the surprise, we are not exactly going to Olive, but to this very sweet restaurant within OLIVE. Am sure many who have been to Olive have never even seen this little board.
A very unusual idea is this very sweet, special and exclusive little cottage reserved ONLY on Thursday nights for 21 special guests.
ONLY 21 guests, Heaven is an exclusive club is it not ?
A remarkable feature is The Chefs work before your eyes to create their magic .However remember this happens only on Thursday nights.
Kitchen to table is just a few seconds away.
I noticed this gorgeous bowl at the bar and prepared myself for the knockout PUNCH to Heaven.
The white carnations from the first article make a come back as we get onto a CRACKER of a start. The support to local craftsmen is evident in the lovely little duck egg coloured pottery vase. ( a “kulhad” made by the local potters of Delhi)
Having played with words and got all into a twist, I unveil what we are here for and my HEAVENLY “9 STEPS TO HEAVEN”. Read on a accompany me to Heaven.
