Slice of New York

India Today - - SIMPLY CHENNAI -

The lat­est ad­di­tion to the list of nov­elty eater­ies in Khader Nawaz Khan Road is Fresca’s Pizza which of­fers New York City’s trade­mark piz­zas right here in Chen­nai. With their hand- tossed crust and tomato moz­zarella top­ping, the pizza joint is sure to make you feel like you’re right in the mid­dle of NYC. Hav­ing opened their doors only two months ago, the pizze­ria has an in­for­mal dé­cor with red fur­nish­ing, ca­sual metal fur­ni­ture, spa­cious wooden tables and a large black­board in the cor­ner that an­nounces the day’s spe­cials.

As soon as you’re seated, com­pli­men­tary foc­ca­cia bread slices with tomato gar­lic dip are pro­vided to get your ap­petite warmed up for the tasty feast that is to en­sue.

It is a good idea to try some of the more ex­otic dishes as well here, such as the Ajo Blanco, a splen­did cold soup made with bread, crushed al­monds, gar­lic, olive oil and green grapes or the field greens and pear salad.

Also try the tra­di­tional Neapoli­tan style crusted pizza made with Ital­ian flour and hand- rolled. Fresca Pizza is not your typ­i­cal pizze­ria where or­ders come with timed serv­ings and se­lect top­pings.

The prepa­ra­tion is as elab­o­rate as the va­ri­ety and as a re­sult, a 10 or 11 inch pizza can cost any­where be­tween Rs 450 and Rs 600.

Other tasty eats such as the three cheese ravi­oli pasta, the warm choco lava cake and vanilla bean ice cream are must tries as well. Av­er­age meal for two Rs 1200 At New No. 32, Plat­inum Build­ing, Khader Nawaz Khan Road, Nungam­bakkam Tel 8939933039
