New in town

India Today - - COVER STORY -

The fifth out­let of Paris Cafe in Kolkata could not have asked for a tougher com­peti­tor in the neigh­bour­hood than the fa­mous Kookie Jar’s Ali­pore store, but as far as Sneha Singhi, 24-year-old owner of Paris Cafe is con­cerned, there is more than enough room for all kinds of bak­eries in this town.“Our menu is more Amer­i­can-in­spired in terms of desserts. Also, we have more fresh fruit and berry based desserts such as straw­berry, black­berry, blue­ber­ries and more,” she says. And it holds true for it’s their Amer­i­can se­lec­tion that is more pop­u­lar with the who's who of Kolkata such as the rain­bow cheese­cake and the red vel­vet cup­cake. In fact, the red vel­vet cheese­cake has found a fan in ac­tor Varun Dhawan, who de­manded a slice of cake while pro­mot­ing his movie Badri­nath Ki Dul­haniya, hav­ing tried it on a pre­vi­ous trip while pro­mot­ing Humpty Sharma Ki Dul­haniya. Meal for two Rs 1,000 At Paris Cafe, Ali­pore Tel 8229920380
