Anushka posted on 11 February

Whether it’s a post-work coffee outing, a rooftop dining experience, or a late night ice cream run  – everything seems more special and memorable when you go out with bae. But if you’re like us, chances are that you and your SO have fought more when you’re hungry and can’t seem to decide on a place to eat together. So we’ve picked some of our favourite spots, and are ready with some much needed date night inspiration with these beautiful spots that will help you two unwind and relax, and focus on what’s important – food and love.

Lavaash By Saby

A gem in Mehrauli, Lavaash by Saby has that perfect soothing vibe for a mellow and chill time. With delicious, wholesome food that blends Bengali cuisine with Armenian flare – make date night epic with some amazing dishes, including Prawn Casserole, Spicy Chicken, thin crust pizzas, mutton ribs and more. With both indoor and outdoor seating {we love the lush green outdoors that would make for a perfect winter date}, decor inspired by old-style havelis – the mix of bright colours and interesting patterns makes for a comfortable, yet unforgettable experience.

#LBBTip: Close the night with their mouthwatering Old Monk Mousse!
