Kolkata, July 10, 2016: In a city that witnesses births of cafe’s every month, Route 17 down Dr.Sarat Banerjee road takes a different “route” of existentialism by becoming Kolkata’s first Chinese cafe that’s open till midnight.
Conceptualized by fitness buffs Akhilesh Jayaswal, Mantosh Gupta and Zahid S Khan, the cafe promises to woo patrons with its delicious array of Chinese starters like Crispy Chilli Potato, Crispy Chilli Baby Corn, Drums of Heaven, Spring Roll, Dumplings etc ; Main courses such as Spicy Black Bean Fish, Fish and Brocolli Cantonese Style, Honey Pepper Chicken, Chilli Paneer and desserts like Fried Ice Cream and Ice Cream with Darsaan, among others.
Renowned actress Mumtaz Sorcar launched Route 17 on Thursday July 7 and was seen going gaga over her experience.
“I love the interiors and decor of this place because it’s the perfect ambience for a good ‘adda’ session with friends after a hard day at work. The fact that Route 17 remains open till midnight is another great feature; just right to fulfill those midnight food cravings! ”
The informal atmosphere of converting a home to a cafe is perhaps the biggest USP of this cafe.The decor amalgamates new-age knickknacks like driftwood lighting and bamboo with carved wrought iron furniture, snazzy music, jute linings and a projector .
*Guests can sit in the main dining area which is dotted with retro-vintage looking wrought iron furniture for a formal lunch.
*A section devoted to high stools if one wants to enjoy a private meal alone.
*For a personalized informal dining, one can move to the lane area with a cosy sitting arrangement.
*And finally the cabana area that symbolizes a dewan, to hang out with friends.
What’s more? Route 17 even has its own little private library for bookworms to read while enjoying their meal.
The cafe remains open seven days a week from 10am to 12 am. Pocket pinch for two would be INR 500 AI.
A Pinch Of Salt was honored to be invited for the launch of this trendy cafe and looks forward to a satiating experience in the future. You can have a look at some of the pictures from the launch event below:
