Fio Cookhouse may not be located in a manicured green sprawl like its sibling, Fio Country Kitchen and Bar, but it makes up for this loss by being located in a terraced garden that shields it from the vibrations of the Nehru Place Metro Station and gives it a sense of being a private island as well. And it transforms seamlessly from being a cool and casual fine-dining restaurant in the day to a high-octane party zone at night. Yet, it doesn't let one avatar overshadow its overall character – here is a restaurant that takes its food as seriously as its partying spirit. The menu is part-Italian, part-North Indian, and its Chefs take fish seriously (you know it when you ask for Fio's signature Olive Crusted Rawas and the Mahi Kasundi Tikka). Our favourites extend from Fio's Deconstructed Caesar's Salad (where roasted pumpkin lends the classic a zesty twist) and the pizzas (especially the one with smoked salmon, camembert cheese and chives) to Ananas Glazed Pork Ribs and Butter Beans, Mushroom and Spinach Roesti, to the unmissable Viennese Choco Raspberry Mousse and Tiramisu Jar.
Al fresco dining has caught on Delhi like fire. The residents are preferring to dine outdoor than spending time cooped up inside four walls. The idea of eating under awning of stars and breathing in the crisp smell of trees has taken a root in the society. FIO cookhouse & bar at Epicuria at Nehru place is one such paradise. Serene place and lighted pebbled pathway leading to your seats leaves a sense of mystical romance. Hand in hand as you walk down the trail with your partner builds anticipation for the surprises to come. As you come to the seating expanse the sight that meets your eyes is unbelievable. Wooden tables dotted all over the courtyard prettily are lighted with dim candles. Overhead strings of fairy lights twinkle away adding to the romance.
The staff approaches and lead you to your seats, handing the menu in a courteous way. Soups and salad section hosts wonderful combinations. Mushroom & thyme, Fio casa salad, pollo pomello salad, minestrone pimentos soup are all delicious. Between the courses bread basket is accessible to keep you occupied. The starters like country bruschetta, chilli garlic butter prawns, polenta crusted calamari, phylo tazza are readily cooked in the kitchen. If Italian is the way you want to go then various pizzas and pastas are on the menu. Take advantage of little gnocchi which are tiny pillows of potato tossed with sun dried tomatoes, pesto and nuts. By the time main course is ordered you are heady with expectation. The restaurant serves contemporary cuisine so Ananas glazed pork chops are recommended. Vegetarians can opt for roesti primavera as it is too yummy with crisp potato pancake and exotic vegetables. For modern indian food rajmah ki gilauti and kosha murg offers lot of potential. Violet cheesecake jar is the final finishing touch to a superb meal. Fresh baked 15 min cake has earned lot of praises too.
All in all FIO cookhouse is a moderately expensive restaurant yet very much in demand. On lazy winter days the open courtyard seems attractive for the customers. So make a booking before visiting. This place is meant for both family and intimate dinners. Itâ€™s large enough to organise both the parties at the same time without losing its peacefulness.
