Indigo Deli Comes to Town | We’ve been watching, waiting and listening to one too many “any day now”, but Bombay favourite Indigo Deli has finally opened its heart and doors to us Dilliwaalas. It started operations on Friday, only for a select few, and it might take a few days before it opens to public. At least it’s here, and now we can rely on a lot more than hearsay! For the uninitiated, Indigo Deli is a Bombay institution, serving typical Deli food {done perfectly} including sandwiches, bagels and thin crust {and winning} pizzas. One too many trips to Bombay have taught us there’s nothing like their generous portions of dessert and homemade ice cream. We know in a sea of new restaurants and delis, this might seem like just another new kid on the block that may or may not pull its weight. But Indigo Deli should top your list of new places to check out, and we can almost guarantee they aren’t going anywhere anytime soon.

Where: Ambience Mall, Vasant Kunj

Price: INR 2,000 for a meal for two {approx}
