A slice of Italy
AS YOU enter the restaurant you will certainly be taken by the ambience of the place. Overlooking a manicured part in Defence Colony, one will feel at home at once with beautifully done rough-cut stone and raw wood in an unfinished look, comfortable seating arrangement with low lying sofas in multiple prints and hues, soothing Sufi music with lot of other flavours, a small library for the bookworms and of course, a glass of wine from Italy.
This newly opened restaurant aptly named Stone offers Italian cuisine for the food connoisseurs. Simran Mehra, the brain behind the ambience of the restaurant, says, "This kind of set up is a huge hit with foreigners and I hope to draw some local crowd too. For the calorie conscious, we have something special too in our menu."
Offering the best wines starting from Frontera Chardonnay to Jean Claude Boisset Beaujolais, there is more for the wine lovers from Austrailia to France and Croatia to Italy. For the non-alcoholics, there are several fruit punches and mocktails on offer.
For the vegetarians, the menu offers bruschetta (crispy Italian bread with mushroom, tomatoes, garlic and mozzarella cheese) and Caesar salad as appetiser. For the main course, there is penne arrabiatta (penne cooked al-dente tossed in spicy tomato sauce), lasagne (layer of pasta sheet and vegetable with cheese sauce), risotto con fungi (Arborio rice cooked with assorted mushrooms, artichokes and finished with cheese sauce).
For the non-vegetarians, there is insalata alla marinarra (mixed sea food salad in marina style), misti timaree griglia (grilled sea food platter with lemon butter sauce) to name a few. Besides, the restaurant also offers pastas in 17 varieties, including regulars like penne ariabiatta, spaghetti bolognese and farfalle con pollo.
To pamper your sweet tooth, there is tiramisu (chocolate pudding) and coffee flavoured cheese cake. Meal for two costs around Rs.1000.
