From iconic eateries to hipster cafes, Kolkata has much to offer to city dwellers on a lookout for flavours old and new.
MONKEY BAR New in town
Not many well-known chains choose to open an outlet in Kolkata. But when they do, the city’s residents give it a warm welcome. At Manu Chandra’s Monkey Bar, small things make a big difference. Barely a year old, this gastro pub’s large windows provide a fantastic view of the city; there is something magical about watching the sun washing over Victoria Memorial that puts you in a happy mood. But even minus the view, Avantika Saraogi, 24, local partner, is confident that Monkey Bar would have drawn in people’s attention. “Our USP is that we give equal importance to food and drinks—both are equally good here,” she says. The brand’s already established reputation has made it quite the
go-to-destination. Popular picks here include Chilli Cheese Dragons and Butter Chicken Khichdi, and their signature drink Copper Monkey is a sureshot winner.
