Lunch at Pickwicks Restaurant, The Claridges

corona beer

The Maison Boutique is holding a Trunk show at Claridges in Delhi for 3 days. I thought I’d check it out while they were still there. You Delhi girls should check it out. It was like a shopping heaven. I chose two dresses for myself. One was from Preen and other one was from Carven. I finally bought a blue carven dress mainly because it fit like a glove on my body. Totally can’t wait to show it to you all. :D

After a Happy Shopping stint, it was time for a hearty meal.

One of our all time favourite restaurants in Delhi is Pickwicks at The Claridges Hotel. Sanjeev and I have been there for so many dates, and celebrated birthdays & anniversaries. I think more than the food we love the ambiance there. It is an 19th Century themed restaurant inspired by Charles Dickens’ Pickwick Papers. A part of the restaurant has a sitting arrangement right next to huge bay windows. You can see the entrance of the hotel from there. Right across is a garden. There are lovely sketches on the wall inspired by pickwick papers.

Although I have to say that the Claridges does not give that uber sophisticated  5 star restaurant feel. But I guess it’s the rusticity of it that makes it different from the rest. Today, especially, the music was a bit loud and the voice of the cutlery a bit over the top. But you can’t help it since it was a peak time and way too many people loving this cozy little place.

We ordered a Tomato & mozzarella cheese salad, which is super tasty and very fresh. Very filling as well. Next was the Pesto Pasta. I didn’t enjoy it that much but Sanjeev did. I like my pastas to be a bit hot and this one was a little bland for my palate. And you have to believe this one. Sanjeev ordered Gulaab Jamun for dessert even despite my constant nagging bout trying something more sophisticated. loll!

Overall it was a hearty meal. The servers were warm and friendly. It has always been a good experience to go to Pickwicks. Today it was no different. :)

Later we took a stroll around the hotel. Enjoy the pics. And have a great weekend everyone. :)

    • Devie says:

      Hehe J! They’ll go well with that broccolli soup na? Only that’ll make it super unhealthy — not that I mind!

      Rati, I love these posts of yours! The vivid writing along with the pictures makes it feel like I, too, visited the place :P

      Can’t wait to see the Carven dress! :D

    • Rati says:

      and you freakin made “THE GORDON RAMSAY” style soup. I go check. :P

      • Janhavi says:

        hawww omg I saw saw – she’s definitely got dabanng style back boobs or she is in some very messed up position :O :O I stared :P

        Devie – yes im sure the breads would make the soup very unhealthy but I shamelessly enjoyed mine with a slice of toast topped up with leftover hollandaise – yes im terrible like that :(

        Ratidoo that soup is so easy – its easier than making tea !!! :O

    Rati.. yes you are as usual looking very pretty.. but my purpose to comment here is that I have finally seen how Sanjeev looks like… honestly? He sooo looks like this super nerdy bengali babu-moshai :D awesome! and i was sooo imagining him to be this pakka dilli ka dude ;) his looks here are totally reminding me of my cousin brothers (lemme add intellectual brothers) back home in Kolkata :) u guys make an adorable couple pakka se! :)

    • Rati says:

      suma actually he does not belong to delhi. he is originally from Jabalpur so guess that’s why he does not look dilli ka dude. :P awww!!

      His intellect was something that I got attracted to most. I was like guy-talking-no-nonsense.. I am all yours. loll!! Thanks. :))
