Part cafe, part dainty drawing room, Latitude 28, run by the redoubtable Ritu Dalmia is perpetually crowded. It overflows at mealtimes because of the hearty snack/light meal formula that Dalmia does so effortlessly. It helps as the décor appears to be a stylish drawing room more than a conventional restaurant, though there are dining chairs as well as overstuffed sofas. The food may be marginally biased towards Italian but there are Middle Eastern and even a couple of home-style dishes on the menu, together with the trademark desserts.

You will be pleased to see several well-known restaurants and pubs, part of this snazzy market, each holding its fort down with ease. Celebrity chef Ritu Dalmia too has forayed into the Khan Market lure by adding to its charms her very own take on casual eclectic food with â€˜Latitude 28â€™. From its good-looking perch on second floor, the restaurant overlooks a gorgeous slice of the market.
