The Cor­ner Court­yard

VM&RD - - CONTENTS -

‘The Cor­ner Court­yard’ is a 110 year old house, re­stored to gift the 'City of Joy’ an all day fine din­ing ex­pe­ri­ence of world cui­sine.

Want to walk down the mem­ory lane while you step in­side a South Kolkata house court­yard? Then this desti­na­tion will surely get added on to your list of choices when it comes to good food and an am­bi­ence per­fectly suited to that. The place is con­cep­tu­alised by Megha Agarwal, Di­rec­tor of ‘The Cor­ner Court­yard’, who wanted to es­tab­lish a ‘per­sonal touch’ in each cor­ner of in­te­rior space. The global menu, set amidst in­ter­est­ing graf­fi­tis at wall, che­quered floors or the old clocks and vin­tage photographs have blended well with the spirit of the city which has a knack of adapt­ing to the new while reminiscing the by-gone era. Lo­cated at 92B Sarat Bose Road, a very high-end lo­cale of South Kolkata, ‘The Cor­ner Court­yard’ is per­fectly di­vided into two sec­tions at present with a 55 seater fine din­ing area and a cafe – The Rouge. Megha Agarwal shares with us, “When I de­cided to take up this project I wanted to do some­thing that would suit the char­ac­ter of this place. Thus the whole decor hav­ing a very soothing colour tone and an­tique fur­ni­ture ac­tu­ally com­pli­ments the vari­ant shades of our world cui­sine which is our spe­cial­ity and also first of its kind in the city.” This de­sire was put to a draw­ing board by a very young Kolkata based in­te­rior de­signer Anumeha Tan­tia. Anumeha shares in this re­gard, “When I took up this project it was our aim to main­tain that old-world charm of this type of ar­chi­tec­tural space which are very rapidly van­ish­ing away from our city’s sky­line. Thus a lot of time has been de­voted to mod­ern civil work on the build­ing and only af­ter that could the in­te­rior de­sign­ing be­gin for the Cor­ner Court­yard.”
