Visit Philtre: The All New Bistro We Can’t Stop Raving About

Cuisines: Beverages

Attributes: Bars/Pubs

Philtre means love potion in French, an elixir known to arouse the senses and sensuality in a loved one. The main focus at this newly launched place is the bar, where a celebrity Mixologist tends to your boozy needs within minutes. Cosmopolitans and Manhattan aren’t on the menu. There are 10 signature cocktails all served in opaque glass-like structures made of ceramic, terracotta and even aluminium where you can’t ‘see’ your drink.  The Avant-Garde-esque techniques are paired with ancient vessels that aim to transport you to a different era.

For drinks, we tried the botany of desire (A coconut rum infused with a honey pepper syrup) and the Schetzell.  The latter is made of cold brew coffee sourced from Coorg, Gin and Kewda rose water. It tastes like a tipsy espresso with overtones of rose sherbet. It tantalizes the taste buds without stinging the nose. Try the Jaggery shake if alcohol is not your mind. An in-house microbrewery and a smoking area complete the place.  The lighting and wooden décor are reminiscent of 1th Century France. The terrace (Stylized in French and Greek theme) makes for a comfortable setting which we look forward to in the winter. 

They also have a celebrity chef on board who has curated an exotic menu keeping in mind the Indian Palette. What we liked best about the food was the attention lavished on vegetarians. This Bistro adds its own spin to things, making for a sumptuous gastronomical journey right from the Lucknowi Seekh kebabs for starters all the way to the Rabri Litchi pannacotta for dessert. For main course we suggest the multani paneer tikka with Jalapeno curry for vegetarians and the Malabar Pork curry kerala parota is an excellent choice for non-vegetarians. Their unique salivating point lies in the eclectic fusion of different cuisines ranging from the exotic Lebanese to the desi jhaalmuri. All of this I served on the platter without losing any of the flavours. The service is swift too.

Visit this place for a soul-satisfying gourmet experience that takes its love for food very seriously evoking amor with every potion you drink.
