Come festive season and Eros Hotel, Nehru Place is all geared up to usher in the new years in style. I was recently invited for a sneak peek to the celebrations at the hotel and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. A giant Christmas Tree adoring the lobby, ginger bread house at the Tea Lounge and festive decoration all through the hotel set the mood right from the moment I stepped in.
The party arrangements were made at Empress of China, hotels oriental dining restaurant. The place had a large centre table set for a fine dining Christmas dinner, dim lights, loads of candles and a menu interestingly put on a Santa’s cap. It also an outdoor set-up, with ample festive lights, live singing , bar and snacks being served. It was a windy evening, but the charm of sitting outside could not be ignored. Coal stands were strategically placed to keep us warm.
Orange Mimosa was served as a welcome drink and it was amazing. Dimsums, Chicken Canopies, Salmon Rolls were being served as snacks. I personally loved the chicken canopies and dimsums. Also tried some Cold Cuts, Pita Platter and Chilli Paneer which were good too. Fun props were kept to indulge in some crazy photo opportunities. Live music added to the whole celebratory vibes and mingling with like minded friends is always a pleasure.
After chit chatting and enjoying the snacks and a couple of drinks, we moved inside for our fine dining 3 course. Mushroom Cappuccino along with Prawn Harissa, Chicken Tartare and Tandoori Raan Phyllo were served first. The Mushroom Cappuccino was delicious. Out of the starters platter, I loved Chicken Tartare and Raan Phyllo, they both were simply amazing. I didn’t like the prawn much.
For mains there was a choice of Lamb Loin, Rolled Lasagne and Indian Sea Bass. I settled for Rolled Lasagne although the Lamb Loin and Sea Bass both looked equally tempting and inviting. There was roasted Turkey as well to savour and which was just fabulous.
Deconstructed Plum Cake served for dessert was extremely delectable. I loved both the presentation and taste of the same.
Post dinner, a cheese platter along with Whisky and Wine was served and it had some amazing cheese variety I must say.
I loved the dinner, the festive vibes and overall ambience of the place and I am sure you will love it too. So keep Eros Hotel in mind as you plan your new year celebrations in this week. For me its always gonna be most special place.
