RESTAURANTREVIEW /

It’s the­atrics from the word go, or rather from the first step you take of the funky stair­case that leads you to Soci­ial Dis­trict. You can’t help but soak in the happy chaos that seems to be in ev­ery nook of this crazy bistro- bar. Pic­ture a red car shaped sofa shar­ing space with bright chairs at the next ta­ble, or a bi­cy­cle mak­ing up the dé­cor on one wall and com­puter moth­er­boards adding a touch of drama to the DJ con­sole. An am­ber glow from sev­eral dif dif­fer­ent lamps ups the joy quo­tient by a notch and the menu doesn’t dis­ap­point ei­ther. Que­sadil­las and piz­zas with in­ter­est­ing top­pings and names like An­gry Bird for chicken lovers– are safe bets to be had with a se­lec­tion of rich frappes over a hearty con­versa con­ver­sa­tion. Or opt for a fuller plat­ter from the ori­en­tal sec­tion, in­clud­ing baby corn mush mush­room with basil sauce paired with red China noo­dles. There’s Hy­der­abadi biryani too for those who’d rather keep things more desi, and also the Soci­ial spe­cial tra­di­tional home­made Mag­gie. A must- try on the menu is their mango ba­nana and straw­berry smoothie called Hol­ly­wood Dreamer, which dou­bles up as a dessert.
