A fairly new arrival on the city’s culinary map, The Romeo’s Locale arouses curiosity for its name. Situated in the inner market of Sector 7, which is always bustling with activity, finding a parking spot here is never easy. The name might suggest a casual cafe but you are in for a surprise. The all-white and grey interiors, ornately carved sofa seats, fresco style roof and mellow music exude an air of elegance. This Romeo’s turf is styled more like a dining room in a villa and will appeal to those looking for a cosy setting where conversations can flow with ease. There’s also an island bar at the end of the restaurant. The menu, however, takes a populist theme and packs in everything that would appeal to different age groups and palates. From Indian kebabs to Italian pasta and thin-crust pizzas, Tex-Mex specials to Oriental meals, robust curries to Continental dishes, there’s a lot on offer. These multiple spreads go in the restaurant’s favour. The ‘Tom Yum’ soup, we tried, was, fiery but flavoursome. The grilled platters pack in a good variety and the portions are generous. Other highlights here are the sizzlers and thin crust pizzas. Do try the American sizzler that works well for two moderately hungry diners. The white-sauce pasta is also worth a try. It just proves that simple things can be equally sumptuous when well done. Pair up your meal with a thick-shake, smoothie or concoction from the bar. Even though it’s a predictable line-up on the menu, the mellow mood and ambience make for a welcome change.
