Cosy Box
Cozy Box is bringing One Golden Mile back in action, an iconic restaurant from Cannes now in Delhi. Yes, it’s the Cannes Film Festival’s official food partner, founded by Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Vesini! The restaurant and bar screams modernity and finesse, and avant-garde interiors give it a quirky edge. Coming new to the city’s culinary scene, each plate presented on the table is a display of their artistry. Creative with a modern touch, Cosy Box specialises in Mediterranean cuisine and the slick cocktail bar offers delicious tipples. Topped with tequila or flavoured water, each drink comes with a fieldnote emblazoned. Their signature cocktail A Day In Cannes is a must-try. And apart from a Sunday brunch that champions bread, eggs and meat pairings, their brekkie bowls are a delight to the palate.

Dirty Jungle
It’s time to get dirty while getting lost in the wilderness. Serving flavourful food and innovative concoctions in an unconventional setting is Delhi’s newest cocktail bar, Dirty Jungle. Open only for dinner, 7 pm onwards, you can expect lip-smacking concoctions including the Yuzu Blossom, Monkey Business – a gin-based cocktail topped with Kombucha, and Sex in the Jungle; a vodka infused tipple. The names aren’t the only exciting factor, but the presentation of each is in sync with the jungle theme. Binge on a healthy salad or get a little unhealthy as you satiate your taste buds with popcorn chicken and rigatoni in confit tomato sauce and ricotta.

Tbsp. Tablespoon at DLF Avenue is a hidden gem in the city. With a live kitchen at the centre of the restaurant, the chain champions authentic Italian flavours. But the key highlight of the restaurant is their soda pop cans — a burst of freshness to beat the summer heat. Our favourites include flavours like Rasberry, Pink Lemonade and sparkling water. Also, keep an eye out for their cold platters that work as a great alternative to hot tapas. Their wood oven pizzas, stuffed portobello mushrooms and pasta will surely leave you wanting more.
