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
