CAFFE TONINO -AN APPEALING CHOICE
Furthering the food philosophy of Delhi’s landmark Italian Restaurant that Delhi embraced ever so lovingly, Tonino recreates the playfulness of the expanse to locate its spirit in the bohemian lifestyle of the city’s true heart Connaught Place . Stylish setting, a refreshing menu and Chef Suman’s soul in his food make Caffe Tonino an appealing choice. The panoramic windows offer a nice market view and the Chef is ever ready to explain every dish on the menu with great gusto. This New kid on the block sure does pay tribute to the much-needed All day Breakfast joint like never before with a very unique menu and must tries including Egg white Omelettes’ for the weight watchers or the quintessential Frittata whilst nursing a Cappuccino.
Synonymous with leisurely sojourns, this is where morning meetings turn into afternoon lunches and evening coffee gives way to sundown sessions, effortlessly. Without limiting its ability to switch from a laidback daytime hangout to a refined nightfall space, the surroundings mirror multi-faceted creativity. You can choose the vibe you desire over a hot cuppa or a mocktail whilst mulling over the menu focusing on easy to eat, all day munchies made from the finest ingredients and cultivated to create the most delightful taste, flavour and texture.
But of course there is much more than just Breakfast out here, The Beetroot Salad With feta and toasted sunflower seeds is a great prelude of things to come. There are the predicted Indian favoured Italian dishes aplenty, as the name suggests. Signatures such as the Grilled Sole with Cous Cous and some grilled vegetables on the side make for a robust lunch along with a Cup of Herbal Tea for a rich palate of flavours. I would definitely recommend the pizzas, it’s interesting to watch the chef whip up your pizza in a special wood fired oven at the counter, served piping hot to your table. The pizzas out here maintain the lightness, fragrance and originality with a special thin, delicate base. Forget calorie counting as you indulge in the sweet decadence of ‘Tiramisu’ or the ‘Flourless Chocolate cake’….it is to die for! This place is definitely value for money.
