So the 9th round of Restaurant Week has certainly evolved in to something even better. Taking place in Delhi, Bangalore, Mumbai simultaneously from September 19th to the 28th 2014.
This year the menus are a lot fuller and more enticing, the dull, safe menus was my qualm with RWI the first year. Also this time around you can add a signature main for a small increment of Rs. 200-300.
This is a great time to try out some of those pricier places you have had your eyes on. With vegetarian and non-vegetarian options, for Rs. 1,050 (lunch) and Rs. 1,350 (dinner) it is quite a steal. (Not included taxes and services charge)

to book you favourite tables soon.
My Recommendations for Delhi Restaurants:
Mumbai - Would have liked to add Hakkasan to the list but again a very safe and dull menu - black bean and pepper sauces are not why I would go to eat there. I would save Hakkasan for the Chef's Table instead.
My Recommendations for Mumbai Restaurants:
- Indigo, Colaba - (Not Deli but the classier, prettier sister) The most generous of the lot. It seems they literally have their entire menu up for grabs at RWI. And the food here is wonderful.
- Guppy Pop-Up - Another one of my Japanese favourites from Delhi . See the link for my review of Guppy and what to try. http://mademoisellechou-fleur.blogspot.in/2014/05/guppy-comfort-japanese-40.html. I would pay the extra and try their pork belly too. Their Garlic Bacon/Prawn Fried Rice is also a great accompaniment.
- Peshawari, ITC Maratha - I believe the food is supposed to be great, but the menu is quite boring. Vegetarians only have a choice of paneer in the mains it seems. The rest is your standard tikkas & makhanis
- Neel on the Tote - Menu sounds great too, especially that smoked bone marrow soup!
- San:Qi - I haven't tried it but I have heard great things about their Asian menu. Though I am vary of places that serves - Chinese, Thai, Japanese & North Indian...
- Sassy Spoon
As for Bangalore
, I am not too familiar with but I did notice Caperberry
on the list. And that according to me is one of India's best restaurants so do give that a try. http://mademoisellechou-fleur.blogspot.in/2013/12/caperberry-40.html
