Ever since Sex and The City happened the concept of brunches has been evolved and flourished from European countries to Asian countries and now even in India most of us are aware of this concept, especially if you’re living in Delhi and its winters.
Fio- Cookhouse & Bar, Epicuria, is one beautifully thought and conceptualized fusion patio in the otherwise busy and bustling Nehru place area of South Delhi. The love and labour of restaurateur Mr. Vineet Wadhwa is visible in every nook and corner of this place. From a huge library which is designed in such a way that one its one side there’s bar counter and other side is the kitchen area, stands tall and beautiful and the same time you’ll see outside garden sitting with marble tracks and umbrella shades. Yes! you heard it right this place is not only just one floor sitting unlike other restaurants that turn the place into a mezzanine Mr. Wadhwa has kept it one story restaurant with a little garden area outside for one of those bright days perfect for brunching.
A deep passion for food and a penchant for perfection are evident in every aspect of the Fio experience. Look forward to an unforgettable gastronomic excursion as the culinary masters at Fio bring together the finest recipes from Europe and contemporary India to tease and provoke your palate.
I took a look at their newest menu. To start off I had Amuse bouches- Rum Flamed Cured cheese and olive. A perfect amalgamation of cheese infused with rum flamed olive was a good start for the rest of the gastronomical journey which was about to begin.
Smoked Salmon Salad was the next thing i tried and I must say being a salad person I’m quite possessive about how my salad tastes and this was just amazing. The salmon was smoked to perfection with fresh veggies and right amount of seasoning.
Prawn Minestrone Piemontese- tomato broth with small cut vegetables with prawn on the top was an interesting medley of the flavors.
Butter beans– mushrooms, butter beans, spinach, sundried tomato and parmesan cheese when baked together taste just as good as these small buns which were so soft and tasty on their own.
On the other hand drinks were another hit on the menu, Apple martini, peach martini and choices of wines (Sparkling or Dry). Do try their martini’s as they have some unique choices layed down on the menu.
A meal is incomplete without desserts and for our brunch we were surprised with a widespread of desserts infront of us. Orange Cheesecake, Raspberry & Chocolate pudding, Tiramisu and Plum cake. Tiramisu and Raspberry & Chocolate pudding were my personal favorites from the lot.
At Fio- Cookhouse every experience is made for entertaining your senses and taste buds.
Happy eating & Happy reading!!!
