Fuji

Somehow the Japanese and all their splendour manage to remain well concealed in a city that thrives on talking. And try as hard as we may, they tend to slip under the radar. Latest new Japanese kid on the not so hidden block of CP is Fuji, competing for title of best Japanese food in the city. It’s part of a chain that has its roots in Calcutta, and now it’s here. As for the interiors, it follows an aesthetic popularly regarded as Japanese; sunken floors, long tables, and booth style seating for those who aren’t used to their style of dining. You’ll find a pleasant break with plush leather sofas and low tables. Coming to the food; the best part, obviously the Sushi and Sashimi menu is endless, but what’s most interesting is the diversity and exhaustive nature of the rest of their offerings. So, we’re talking Ramen, Rice Bowls, a Teppanyaki section, and set meal options. You’ll know their dedication is more towards the food, and one look at your fellow diners, and you’ll know it’s largely catering to the expat crowd. Just in case the Japanese menu didn’t give you your first clue. For an authentic, less frills more focus, Japanese meal in the city, Fuji should make your list.

Where: M-41/2, Speedbird House, Middle Circle, Connaught Place

Resonance. T 

For all you tea addicts, or explorers alike, Anandini has opened a brand new Tea space. We say space because you can do all kinds of tea related things. From tasting their various blends, to buying, to just being able to explore their space, think of it as a tea room. Expect high tables and chairs, kitschy art, a very special light installation meets chandelier, and racks and racks, and racks of Anandini Tea. When does it open? TEA-0o days.

Where: 10A, DDA, Shahpur Jat {close to Slice of Italy}
