Depot48

Cuisine: Mostly Mexican Blurb: Live music gigs and finger food Atmospherics: I just love to see how restaurateurs open their second and subsequent branches.

Dilli 32

Cuisine: North Indian Blurb: Really royal nawabi gosht stew in this five star restaurant that also serves banta soda and chuskies as a palate cleanser Intro: Expect surprises in the restaurant that is located in Delhi 110032 (hence the name 32) in sprawling settings.
