OLIVE BISTRO, GURGAON
RUSTIC CHARM BLENDS WITH THE RIGHT AMOUNT OF MODERNISM
Cosy and relaxing and the rough white walls and flowered alleyways of cobblestones transport you to some Island in Greece. Once inside its all stonework with a blend of interesting furnishings and crisp lines sure is inviting, truly the Al fresco bar, candles are restored bar make it an unmatched ambience. Coming to the food, this doesn’t fail with its intriguing mix of traditional traveller’s fare and new –age cooking. Chef de cuisine, Mayank Tiwari shares his unique take on modern day bistro comfort food. The vegetarians would love the ‘Roasted Beetroot, Ricotta, Arugula and Candied Walnut Salad’ and ‘Roast Almond and Creamed Spinach Ravioli’. Recommendations go all out for the homemade crusty granary breads. Wholesome sandwiches, juicy burgers, delicate broths, Wood-fired pizzas ‘The Carnivore on a Thin Crust Pizza’ being a must try and delicious desserts like the ‘Vanilla Panacotta served with Pink Peppercorn and Orange sauce’, ‘OB Insanity Cake Slice’…decadent to the core. The experience at the bistro embodies the spirit of Olive in an entirely new space is a great combination of its creative interiors by Sabina Singh the architect Vivek Popley and refreshing themes along with all the unique interactivity built in. Just the place for lunching ladies and those looking for a relaxed evening as one can wash away one’s fatigue with a tall glass of fresh fruit julep or just stroll across in the evening in a pair of shorts for a glass of exquisite French wine.
