Urban Zing Factor
As the name says it’s concept of tailor made cocktails. Some of the dishes in menu are paired with cocktails. You need to wait, for sometime, before this place procures liquor license.
The Changes, the Essence, the Future:
If you have been following me on our blog or even on social media you must have noticed that I hardly visit CP. My experience of CP has not been amazing. At one point of time, Niche was the talk of the CP, unfortunately they were unable to sustain and lost the charm. Monkey bar was another place which was my favorite but they also lost the game. There is a serious dearth of excellent cocktail bars in CP. Tired of sugar laden cocktails that is filled with ice and nothing more!
The Gusto food and My Take:
The name as it says Darzi means tailor made which should be very obvious. It’s more of a Urdu word – in Hindi it being called Darji – yet both the words are easily understood in north India.
Darzi is derived from the Persian word darzan, meaning to sew or from darz, meaning seam. And yes seamless cocktails is what Darzi provides here. The cocktails are tailor made and for that experience you have to wait till they get their license.
As far as food is concerned, it’s nothing fancy – no gimmic and no gas. Simple basic and “swad wala khana (food) as Umesh always puts it. I have known Umesh for very long and given his track record, I am surely looking forward to my next visit where I can try his cocktails.
Chapli kebab is a good way to start if you are a meat lover – bite of meat with balanced spices, this Persian inspired kebab is good to go with any rum or whisky based cocktail.
The bagdi lamb chop will taste really good if you eat with your hands J. Again an excellent preparation and trust me this is one of the best chops you will find in CP.
Methi matar malai pizza is interesting and so was the kolhapuri veg cannelloni – great dishes for vegetarians.
They have only two dessert at the moment out of which gajlea mini pie with wasabi panjiri was has interesting flavors.
Darzi for sure is going to set a new benchmark when it comes to cocktails. I am so looking forward to visit this place again.
