Today, Tania & I celebrated one year of marriage.
As it turned out, Tania had to fly to Nepal for work (timing....I know !!). So...to make up for the fact that we were going to be apart on our anniversary, we booked Sunday night at “The Imperial” hotel.
“The Imperial” is this great, art-deco hotel located near Connaught Place. It was built in the 1930s & saw alot of the history leading up to Partition . The place is surrounded by photos of old India (Raj India), pre-partition India & a bit of a royal theme & plenty of military photos.
The place is just so stylish & so....well....”imperial”. We just love coming here.
We dined at “1911 Restaurant” to a retro, old-school, French-inspired menu.
Tania started off with the Asparagus Hollandaise, I had the lobster bisque. We both had an Italian white (I think it was a Pinot Grigio) to accompany our starters.
Tania had a steak dish while I went for a pan-fried chicken breast stuffed with mushrooms & goose foie gras. We went for a French Beaujolais which was surprisingly light & quite fruity. Went very well with our mains.
Dessert for both of us was crepe suzette. We decided not to go for a glass of the 2004 Chateau d’Yquem. At $AUD100 a glass, even we couldn’t justify that expense.
This is the cake the hotel made for us when we arrived
This is some of the art work that you find, tucked away in corners of the hotel
