MR AND MRS SOMANI
Surtis’ love for spicy food makes them frequent this signature restaurant of The Grand Bhagwati that serves North West Frontier cuisine, but surprisingly only vegetarian. Conceptualised by Narendra Somani, a well-known name in Gujarat’s food and service industry, the place’s bright interiors, painted in shades of maroon, gold and beige make it an interesting place for diners. Start with the strange but delectable combination of pesto paneer tikka and mint cheese grill toast, and for the mains, try the subz kebab, a vegetarian take on the famous kebabs made by Tunde in Lucknow, with the Awadhi Warqui paratha, End your meal with a paan shot—wait till till the end of your meal to discover what it is!
