About Connaught Place (CP), Central Delhi, Delhi NCR
Connaught Place is the heart of Delhi pulsating with history, power, culture and life. This complex node of historical buildings and patches of dense green foliage today, used to be a ridge covered with kikar trees and housed by jackals. Residents of Kashmere Gate and Civil Lines visited during the weekends for partridge hunting. This area was later developed by the government as a central business district and was named after Prince Arthur, 1st Duke of Connaught. Development of Connaught Place fell upon the shoulders of W.H Nicholls, the chief architect to the Government of India, but later the work was given to Robert Tor Russel who went on to design the complex as it is today. With time Connaught Place grew in shape and size welcoming the first cinema, restaurants and posh homeowners in its fold.

About North Indian Cuisine
Chef Hemant Oberoi has put ‘Masala Art’ on the map of culinary excellence by his keen sense of spices owing to his Punjabi roots. A part of Taj Palace, Masala Art offers to its diners a diverse menu of Indian delicacies with a certain style. ‘Jamavar’ at The Leela Palace is special because of the personal attention it receives from Mrs. Leela Nair. The mouth-watering Malayali food resulting of such dedication adds an extra oomph to the extensive menu. Jamavar is stunning and very opulent. The North Indian fare gains momentum by the arrival of some pretty great restaurants like ‘Dvar Indian Restaurant’. Guided under the sharp eye of Chef Rakesh Sethi, Dvar is a hit amongst the local foodies. Being generously spacious and elegant helps too.
