No one displays their macaroons, cookies, cakes and croissants as temptingly as L’opera does. So, it is natural to get excited when the brand opens another café, this time named L’Opéra Salon de Thé by PVR at Director’s Cut in Vasant Kunj. The fittings and furniture have been bought from France, some even from the French antique markets-- the fading mirror, the lamp that elegantly hangs over your custom made table and even the chairs are Parisian.

What is more exciting is, apart from the flakiest, softest croissants; muffins and cakes that we keep going back to, L’opera has also brought out an exclusive line of desserts for this new outlet that will whisk you away to Paris in no time.

But first settle down, have an ice tea and pick a sandwich. The roasted chicken with grapes sounded apprehensive but turned out to be quite an impressive balancing act. The tomato and mozzarella sandwich can be the vegetarian option for those who want one. Now, on to the desserts.

The Chocolate & Cherry dessert is a dark chocolate & cherry mousse pastry with a chocolate almond sponge on a dark chocolate crunchy base. And it is undoubtedly the best, if you are okay with flavor of berries. It is decadent, gluttonous and pure sin. Take a spoon with all the layers and you cannot ask for anything better.

Fans of Baliey’s will love the Bailey’s Praline Bavaroise with caramelized orange cream, pain de gene (a cake made largely from almond paste, eggs and melted butter)  and Bailey’s cream. The citric twist is not overdone and praline of course can never disappoint. It is a clever combination. The Caramel Apricot pastry features caramel mousse with Apricot confit, Almond Dacquoise and Almond Biscuit and if you are okay with apricots (which dominates the dessert), I would say it is the best for your after meal sweet cravings.

I should also mention the rather odd but indulgent Vanilla & Raspberry pastry that contains vanilla mousse with raspberry jelly on an almond sponge and a pastry base which reminds one of those Swiss jelly rolls a bit. The mousse is perfect—not too sweet and not too sour.

So, if you are heading for a movie, stop at L’opera, admire its décor but do pick up a pastry or two. Or else, order one during the movie. The menu at Director’s Cut has included a few L’opera dishes as well. That’s one more sweet reason to catch a weekend show.

Address: L’Opéra Salon de Thé by PVR is at Director’s Cut, third floor, Ambience Mall, Vasant Kunj.
