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. 😀
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. 🙂
Shameless flaunt pic. 😛

It was right there displayed bold and big on the window. I wanted to ignore it. 😛
