Located in Basant Lok, the Wolf brings on board Giuseppe ‘Papi’ Stasi, a renowned cocktail crafter from Spain, to create liquid concoctions unlike any other in the country from Tiramisu to Tarte Tatin, and Banana Split, these aren’t desserts but cocktails. But what caught our eye is that this is one of the few new menus in Delhi taking the global experience to the food menu. Curated by Chef Sagar Bajaj and Chef Gokhan Eser Kesen, the duo have recreated favourite delicacies from different countries to perfectly compliment the palettes of Delhites.

New menus in Delhi are focusing on the summer season and Bo-Tai Qutub’s summer menu is a whole new summer experience with an eclectic choice of cocktails, perfectly paired with summer dishes. Start your meal with the Pomelo Salad that is citrusy and fresh, the Laab Gai is a Thai classic made with minced chicken and aromas of lemongrass or opt for a hearty Glass Noodle Salad called Yum Woon Sen is most preferred with soft glass noodles, spring onions and a rich dressing made with lemon juice and a hint of sweetness. For non-vegetarians, the Grilled Prawn Salsa over a perfectly toasted brioche is a must-have and the Crispy Tofu is a flavour bomb with notes of Thai tamarind and fresh herbs is a great vegetarian alternative. But the cold section of the menu is the highlight. From salmon Carpaccio dressed with a bell pepper and yuzu soy dressing to Avocado Corn Tartar and the Avocado Pizza, it works best to cool off. 
Pair the meal with cocktails like the Thai-inspired Tiki cocktail and for a tropical vibe, don’t miss a Bo-Tai take on a classic Pina Colada, the best of tropical flavours in a glass. Speaking of Summer Coolers, the Lynchburg Lemonade is a deeply refreshing whiskey cocktail elevated with citrus flavours of lemon and lime.
