Hi

Can anyone help me with suggestions for a fancy family restaurant in Chennai that serves alcohol?

Are you specific to a particular area or open to ideas? In Tamil Nadu, unlike other states, you may not find stand alone restaurants serving alcoholic beverages. Restaurants attached to hotels will only serve the same as the licensing for a bar facility, I think, requires the property to have lodging facilities. Hence,restaurants in all major hotels serve alcoholic beverages, with some stand alone also having this facility. If you may indicate your area of preference or budget or a cuisine, it would be easier.

I personally prefer the Barbeque Nation in T Nagar, Malgudi or Minar in Savera etc.

Areas: Adyar, Mount Road, Nungambakkam, Alwarpet etc is fine.

Cuisine: Mediterranean or Italian. Thai is good too.

Budget: Well upto 3K (without alcohol) for 4 people.

Thank you so much Prasanna. Really like the professional touch in your replies. Almost always covers everything. Must learn :)

Hi

Your location preference may well be out of the window, for cuisine + alcohol parameters narrow your options down dramatically.

MEDITERRANEAN

My all time favourite for Med food at Chennai is THE UPPER DECK at Taj Vivanta (earlier Fishermans cove). However, the only hassle is the long drive out to ECR. In my view, the pain of the drive to and fro is more than made up by the setting, ambience, food taste and the overall experience.

Good, Authentic Mediterranean food is served along with Alcohol at AZULIA a GRT Grand Days Restaurant at T.Nagar.

The Q Bar and the Vasco's at the new Hilton Chennai have a select range of Med and Italian foods with a great ambinece and good range of spirits.

The other decent places for Mediterranean food is Kryptos and 5 Senses, both on Khadar Nawaz Khan Road and Azzuri Bay in Gandhinagar, Adayar. However, none of these serve alcohol.

Shiraz Cafe on the East Coast Road is another place for Med food. However, i have had mixed experiences on the two occassions i had dined there. The first, was awesome (the spread and taste were great) but the next time was an average experience. Moreover, the travel to and fro is a killer.

ITALIAN

Italia at THE PARK (Gemini flyover corner) is on the top of the list for Italian Cuisine along with Alcohol.

FOCACCIA at the Hyatt is a good place for Italian and Alcohol

PREGO at Taj (Coramandel) is a good option for both as well.

BELLA CIAO is another great place for nice Italian, but there is no Alcohol and the drive up to Kottivakam is not within your Radar.

So with LITTLE ITALY - good food but no alcohol (Nungambakkam)

There are quite a few other Multi Cuisine restaurants which also have a few of the dishes on their menu under the Med and Italian headings, but normally it is confined to a Pasta or a Pizza or a Mezze or a Tapas

So, i think you really have some options to make.

"Bon appetit"

regards

Rajan

Hi tintz27,

Thanks for those kind words. But, I was going to write, if you had found mine professional, what would you say if you were to see Rajan's, that too on a topic like food. But, before that, came the rocket. You may see that for yourself from our team's food dictionary.

have a look at Rhapsody at Marriott Courtyard marriott.com/hotelwebsites/…20Menu.pdf.

The Raintree Hotel on St Marys Road may also be good for the ambiance

WOW.

Such wonderful options. Unfortunately many of them are on ECR and I wouldn't travel that far.

But yes. There still are so many good places to choose from.

Thank you :)

Hi Rajan,

I have gone through your blog and tried to do one for Coimbatore but it miserably failed as I am no expert in this blog thing. So it got shelved. Hope to see yours soon and am sure it would be interesting.
