    Curry leaf scones, shrimp rolls and bubbly a�� tea time gets an update at Taj Coromandel

    Do we make the distinction between afternoon tea and high tea? While one is about dainty foods like scones with cream and is a social affair, the other is about more substantial fare like pot pies. What Taj Coromandel has been offering for a month now is a happy mix of the two. So you get your scones a�� curry leaf flavoured and borderline leaden a�� some sandwiches, a tortilla, shrimp rice paper rolls, cakes, biscotti and more. The venue is the lounge, and the spread looks forlorn, what with a lone waiter doing the rounds. Placing an order for a cuppa or a flute of bubbly (Moet Chandon Rose Imperial, if you prefer the Champagne experience) may take a while. With hotel guests checking in or wedding parties floating past, youa��re not going to sip on tea and serenity. That said, you get to choose from a sizeable list of 30 teas and coffees. There are single estate teas from Darjeeling, Assam and Nilgiris and single origin coffees from Brazil, Honduras and Panama, besides staples like espresso. Unfortunately, one expects a premium or singular experience at the Taj Coromandel, even at teatime. So while the oat cookies are scrumptious, they ought to work atA� making this the best late afternoon spot in town. 3 pm to 6 pm. Coromandel High Tea at Rs 500 and Champagne High Tea at Rs 900.

        This deli-bistro-bar marks its first anniversary with delicious new dishes

        A YEAR after first opening its doors, Lavelle Roada��s striking bistro-diner has reinvented its menu, with a range of healthy options and well-executed experiments. Simple flavours and subtle fusions dominate, with Asian influences combining with classic continental offerings.

        Mix it up
        For starters, the seared potato gnocchi is not to be missed. Tossed in an aglio e olio sauce, its only deviation from tradition is in the form of the accompanying green pea and wasabi puree. The pan seared basa also combines Western and Asian flavours. Cooked to soft perfection, the fish is submerged in a tofu, porcini and miso broth. While Italian mushroom and miso is not a combination wea��ve tried before, it worked so well that we had to request a spoon to devour it all. For another twist on a classic dish for dessert, opt for the pink praline slice, which the chefs have combined with banana sorbet.

        1212Food9Anchor1Keep it light
        If you are counting the calories but still want to treat yourself to a drink or two, the new range of skinny cocktails are just the ticket. The green lantern (which really is very green!) looks almost too healthy, but it perfectly balances absolut vodka and lime juice with generous amounts of fresh basil and mint. To fill a hunger craving, try thin crust pizzas, some of which you can order with a wholegrain base. We loved their margarita laden with cheese, and sprigs of rosemary to add flavour. For satisfying diet food, dona��t miss the stuffed artichoke hearts, which are served on a sundried tomato roesti, stuffed with roasted winter vegetables and accompanied by an pleasantly tangy ginger and carrot emulsion. Rs.2,000++ for two. A�Details: 65419999
