Rara Avis

India Today - - SIMPLY PUNJABI -

Tucked away in a crowded mar­ket, in a cosy nook lies a quaint lit­tle French bistro that takes its food rather se­ri­ously. Sim­ple, com­fort­able in­te­ri­ors, a charm­ing ter­race which is per­fect for breezy evenings and an open kitchen im­me­di­ately draw your at­ten­tion to the food. The menu at Rara Avis is ex­otic, filled with the men­tion of es­car­gots, duck, morels, cham­pagne sauce, crepes and baguettes— all French as French can be.

Start your meal with the es­car­gots ( snails) in le­mon but­ter gar­lic sauce— once you get over the ini­tial ap­pre­hen­sion of eat­ing snails, you’ll be­gin to ap­pre­ci­ate the faint metal­lic taste of the snail, off­set per­fectly by the acid­ity of the sauce and bal­ance of the baguette. For main course, we in­sist you skip the Duck with Orange Sauce, and or­der the Filet de Beouf in­stead. Not only is this one of the few restau­rants in Delhi that uses real beef steak ( not buf­falo); they also know how to cook it to pink per­fec­tion. Av­er­age meal for two Rs 2,000 with­out al­co­hol At M- 27, 2nd Floor, M Block Mar­ket, Greater Kailash Part 2 Tel 011 41085544
