Connaught Place’s 10 Hottest Restaurants Right Now

Our very own, very colonial, Connaught Place definitely has an old-style imperial charm in its many buildings and passages.

But, that’s not why we love to flock there – because as much as we love our long-time establishments and neighbourhood standbys, Delhites are a fast-moving bunch fixated on what’s new and happening. Luckily, CP’s food-and-drink scene provides ample activity to satiate our short attention spans.

So here you have it, a guide to help update you on all the super-new, super-promising restaurants in Connaught Place:

5. Go Gourmet

Connaught Place

Healthy is the call of the decade. And Gen Z is more or less obsessed with losing weight – be it through yoga, palates, spinning, gymming, or by eating as healthy as possible. (Usually, we go with both.)

By using only the freshest, quality ingredients, this Connought Place eatery’s healthy vibe is aptly kept up. Some Go Gourmet dishes that are already a hit with the Delhi crowd are: the Classic Caesar Salad, Quinoa with BBQed Chicken, Beetroot Feta Wrap, Detox Tea, and the Spiced Moroccan Lamb Sandwich.
