If you love outdoor diners and your idea of a perfect summer luncheon is to enjoy a hearty meal under a massive canopy of balmy trees and floral vines, then let us tell you about the beautiful alfresco setting that we recently explored at the Unplugged Courtyard Gurugram.
The lip-smacking gastronomical experience combined with some fresh air and upbeat music will surely transport you a beachside within no time, and right in the heart of Gurugram, you will feel the magic of good food and vibes.
Located in a quiet, lush street in Gurgaon’s upscale neighborhood, Unplugged Courtyard is an elegant and massive outlet spread over 15,000 square feet spanning over two levels of seating area. If you have already bored of being stuck in jams at Cybercity or sector 29, this is where you need to hang out with your friends to experience the urban chic vibe and zero parking hassle.
With a capacity of over 375 covers, the restaurant also boasts a terrace area, a secret garden, and a quirky bus give the space a distinctly ‘comfy’ feel, without ever seeming over-designed. From a relaxed daytime hangout lunch place to a buzzing musical joint, the place transforms into contrasting moods as the sun goes down and people start making a beeline to find their favourite spot at the eatery.
This creative genius behind the Swanky Unplugged Courtyard Connaught Place, Swad, Unplugged Courtyard Gurgaon and La Roca (an upmarket Tapas bar) is Dinesh Arora, who is the Chief MD of the umbrella brand. The restauranteur has tried to constantly push the boundaries with his innovative ideas, and about this property, he says, “It’s not every time the utmost cutting-edge food, but its food that shoves the restrictions just enough while remaining comfortable for people.”
The food and drinks menu: With some excellent chefs on board, the menu of this place is perfect for a well-traveled, new age foodie who loves to sample some of the finest ingredients, taste, style, and smoothness. The bar at his place is full of interesting options, and we loved the yummy cocktails on the menu during our fabulous afternoon lunch.
The food menu is designed by Chef Akshay Bharadwaj, and it a mix of Indian flavours and herbs with a twist of European touch. We would recommend a platter of veg or non-veg platter (depending on your eating preference) to be tried at this place as it comes with a number of options that will help you decide the rest of course ahead. If you are fond of Pan Asian food or craving for traditional Laal Maas Ki Lahori Seekh, Bhuna Gosht with saffron Parantha, exotic Thai Basil Chicken, white sauce pasta, healthy green salad or even a delish Khow Suey topped with fried onion and garlic — just head to this joint and find your flavour all packed in a refreshingly new menu.
For dessert lovers, our suggestion would be to try out the French toast with ice cream in a rich banana cake, and Churros with chocolate sauce or just a nice gooey chocolate cake with your favourite topping.
