I love to eat and whenever I travel to places I visit fairly frequently I have what I call my “goodie list” which consists of the things that I “must” eat whenever I am in that location! Le 15 Patisserie & Café in Mumbai makes a sinfully good Dark Chocolate Macaroon and it’s right on…

Phoenix @ The Astor

I was quite the Party Animal in my day and I have always loved to dance. One of my fondest memories is my father coming home from office in the evenings and putting on one of his enviable collection of LP Records and the sound of Paul Anka, Engelbert Humperdinck, Elvis, and The Beatles would…

Aaheli 24 e 24

Of Winter Evenings and Alfresco Dinners in The City of Joy

Though I was born in Kolkata I spent my childhood primarily in the North, hence I love long cold winters which many of my friends in the city don’t. Sadly Kolkata barely has really cold winters but the best way to enjoy the season in my opinion is to dine alfresco so I can combine…
