Highlight Story

April 15 marks 100 years of the sinking of world’s most famous ship, Titanic, and as the world gears up to observe the day with memorial cruises, special merchandise, books, meals and music, Delhi’s not far behind.

Out of the Box, a restaurant in Khan market, will on Sunday serve the last 10-course meal that was on the RMS Titanic first class menu. “Titanic was all about luxury and we are paying tribute to that,” says Priyank Sukhija, the owner. The interiors of Café Cruise in Rajouri Garden have been made to resemble that of the luxury liner. The stewards will also be dressed in costumes from the 20th century. The restaurant’s Lavpreet Singh says, “The story is an inspirational one. We are paying homage to the crew and passengers of the ship.”

Another eatery in the area, Pirates of Grill will have a live band playing the hit numbers of 1900s, which were played aboard the Titanic. “The band members played a selfless role and the live band on Sunday will bring alive their memories,” says Inderjeet Singh owner. Noida club Quantum also has a theme music performance lined up. And, some are going a step ahead — while Spasso in Saket will screen Titanic throughout the day, Et Al will play the song ‘My heart will go on’ in different versions and also observe a two-minute silence to honour the great tragedy.
