This should be my favourite story since the time I started blogging on food. I never had such pleasure in India since I came back from US.
The Grill Room at Lalit New Delhi is perhaps the finest grill house In India where you get the most authentic steak, which otherwise, I have only relished in US.
Apart from scrumptious food, this place also offers the panoramic view of the city, especially central Delhi. The aerial view which can be seen from the 28rd floor of The Lalit, New Delhi where we have The Grill Room.
The Grill Room offers top class cuts and seafood + poultry are sourced from across the globe. This place is truly for people who love meat. Steak lovers can choose their meats from wagyu and Angus from the US.
If you are wondering what to order and what should be the side dishes – here is a simple rule. If you aren’ sure what to order, let the Chef and the restaurant manager decide for you as they are great in providing the best recommendation based on your preferences/palate. We have one of the best managers in town and his suggestions are brilliant. This place is for people who can appreciate great food. The service here is impeccable and the staff has excellent knowledge about food.
On chef’s recommendation, we ordered Five spiced duck salad. As the name suggests, you get the taste of 5 different spices in every bite. This dish also had dried mango and crunchy seedlings tossed in vinaigrette – a perfect way to start your meal.
Unlike other restaurants The Grill Room has paired every dish on the menu with wine. Some of the wine which I tried were absolutely well paired with food.
Now let’s share the star dish – the steak. I ordered porterhouse steak medium rare and my friend ordered well done. It’s also known as T-bone that is cut from the short loin. All the streaks are served with side dish and jus of your choice. I opted for buttered mashed potato and sautéed vegetables.
I was bowled over by what was served. The steak was absolutely perfect. Exactly medium rare, with accompaniments. I was served Thelema Cabernet Sauvignon 2009 with my steak. This wine is bone dry, yet exhibits a lovely sweet fruit character on the palate. The finish is long and firm.
You would love the meat and you will dwell into its taste as you pair it with the wine – A must visit for all meat lovers!
