The menu is thoroughly confusing and for a place so pretty, it is actually quite a letdown. The view of the Qutub Minar is breathtaking, so make sure you ask for a table outdoors. Between 'Chilli Paneer' and 'Club Sandwiches', it is almost as if no thought or vision has been put into the menu. That being said, the whisky menu is so exclusive and extensive, that it makes up for all that the food does not. Ask for the whisky tasting menu for a great experience.
Gastronomy wise, New Delhi has undergone quite a makeover. The days where South Delhi was considered to be the most posh section of the town to grab dinner are passé. Other localities have emerged as the new ‘it’ neighborhoods saturated in style, elegance and class. To dive into world-class gastronomy, give a skip to five star hotels and South Delhi restaurants for the heritage vicinity of Mehrauli. The locality used to be only frequented by tourists hoping to admire Qutub Minar but lately this area has emerged as one of the most sophisticated sections to attain international level gastronomy. Part of this snazzy node is ‘DRAMZ’, a chic restro-lounge thriving on five-star quality food and a stunning dining space. It’s tucked at KD Marg, Near Qutub Minar, Mehrauli, New Delhi, only a stone throw away from the great monument.
What puts DRAMZ on our must-visit list is it’s sensational food. The chef very cleverly breaks away from the chains of conventional cooking by moving towards progressive gastronomy with his classy, upscale, European-Modern Indian-Asian, menu. The ingredients they use are top quality. The menu is paired off with an exceptional bar selection, which stocks on whiskies from all over the globe. Variety is exhaustive. Begin with an array of appetizers such as, blended chimi churi sauce coasted pan fried sole, slow cooked chicken leg confit, the Anglo Indian tandoori broccoli, Hongkong spring roll, Italian baked meatballs, dahi ke kabab, jalapeno cheese fritters and chicken satay. Further woo your palate with, lamb bolognaise pizza, fish & chips, Mongolian stir-fried vegetables, home style chicken curry, roasted English vegetables in filo pastry, champinon risotto, paneer lababdar and steamed fish soya ginger sauce.
For your sweet tooth order an array of luscious desserts cooked by the chef. A smooth gulab jamun, dense chocolate cake, baked yoghurt, kesari phirni, warm chocolate brownie, bread & butter pudding and chocolate sundae would be ideal picks. DRAMZ is a pricey venture but entirely worth it. Interiors of this elegant restro-lounge are stunning. Resembling closely to a gentleman’s club, the décor of DRAMZ reflects the classy masculine cigar rooms of the much exclusive gymkhanas. Vintage leather wing chairs, wooden heavy room, framed old photographs mounted on the wall, ornate marble-top tables, huge chandeliers, gives an old-fashioned vibe to the room. For a more dreamy setting, sit in their terrace area from where you can get an amazing view of the Qutub Minar.
