After trying several restaurants in the neighborhood I have to say
that I truly have not had a bad experience.
But Bhatti has brought the finest touches to
Northern Indian cuisine and created the ultimate in Indian dining.
We were given a selection of the most delicious meats vegetables and seafood on the menu, Rogan Josh Tender pieces
of lamb in a red sauce flavored with cardamom, cloves, Kashmiri spices with a blend of Onion fresh Ginger and Garlic.
Murgh Nizami Korma a Unique Chicken cooked in a rich velvet gravy with saffron and Almond. Vegetables Sabzi
Panchmel a combination of five exotic vegetables tossed in olive Oil and spices. Ajwaini Jheenga : Jumbo Prawns
marinated in a citric Blend of lemon juice, ajwain and green cardamom then grilled and paired with a good Merlot or
Cabernet Sa avignon just brought the flavors of these dishes together.
With these sumptuous meat chicken and fish dishes just kind of gives you that warm tingling feeling all over and when
on a date you just cant choose anything more romantic
then dining under the atmospheric lighting and majestic interior decor of Bhatti
To top it off being a guest of Gaurav Anand, well what can I say? Maybe the word perfection comes to mind. Add
basmati and steamed rice, puri and various pastry’s and garlic and butter nan breads and you truly have an evening fit
for a king and queen.
You can be sure I will be back to dine at Bhatti and will hopefully have the chance to chat with Gaurav about his other
three restaurants. Stay tuned for more reviews
of Gaurav Anand's restaurants ;-)
