This Co-working Space By Sheraton Is An Amazing Bar & Restaurant
What Makes It Awesome?
Welcome to one of a kind Restaurant slash Bar slash Co-working space in Pune. It is named, the 1st Story and is a new venture by Sheraton group of hotels. You may easily locate this inside the Four Points by Sheraton, Viman Nagar. The restaurant is built to be utilized as a fully equipped workspace during the day and transforms into a playground (food and drinks playground) during the night. The best part is you can order food and drinks even though you are at work, which is how I feel when I am at work, LOL. The service, however, was a bit clumsy and had to wait for the servers to be around for assistance. The food was overall good. The concept is a fusion from cuisines across the world and Indian. For example - the must-try Pindi Chole Tacos, a cross between Mexican, Punjabi and Maharashtrian (since the taco itself is made of Maharashtrian thalipeeth. Linguine Anda Makhani - a cross between, Punjabi, North Indian and Italian - who would have thought! The cocktails were, however, a class apart. 'The Drinker's Statement' - a coffee-based cocktail with coffee liquor, vodka and a hint of Tabasco, was one of the most balanced coffee based drinks I have ever had and the 'East India Cocktail' - with pineapple juice, triple sec, bitters and scotch was perfectly balanced over a large cube of ice and made for a great post-dinner drink. Value for money is really good at 1st Story since the place is surprisingly inexpensive and can beat any restaurant in 4/5 star restaurants with their rates. Cost for two is well below Rs 700. Not to forget the ambiance and the vibe is very ecstatic and positive. Overall, a sure visit in Viman Nagar, especially if you freelance and looking for a fun environment to work. For others its just a fantastic value for money option. Cheers!
What Could Be Better?
There could have been minor improvements with dishes like the mushroom and cheese quesadilla, which was a mash of just cheese and mushroom inside a Quesadilla, without much seasoning and the Kottu Parantha, which was a mash of Parantha, eggs and chicken, of which the taste of one transcended over to the other, making it taste very flat.
