Traditional Indian cuisine offered in a sophisticated, fine-dining setting is a trend that is slowly been catching on in the city, and we could not be happier about it. Food Story, with its violet-gold-beige seating and royal chandeliers, is another addition to this growing list and makes you feel like quite the Nawab yourself. The gosht kacche kofte ka shorba, which has meatballs cooked in saffron-infused lamb stock, is a beautiful initiation into the meal. Next, regulars will quickly direct you to the shikampur (soft, melt-in-the-mouth pounded lamb cutlets) or the paneer dudhiya khalmiyan (cottage cheese rolls stuffed with spiced potato and bell peppers). For mains, try the crispy bhindi hara pyaaz, methi murgh, or nalli nihari followed by a yakhni pulao served with mirchi salan – delicately flavoured without an overpowering assault of spices.
