Tossing your brain thinking what to gift your true blue food lover friend? How about a food and beverage loyalty programme that puts together 400 exciting offers from 147 eateries across the city and leads to savings worth Rs 4,50,000? Priced at Rs 1,999, the book has become quite popular among the city’s food buffs.
With offers such as a complimentary bottle of Moet et Chandon champagne that you get at the Hyatt when you dine at any of the hotel restaurants — the book categorises eateries into various slots according to their ambience, cuisine and price. For instance, there is a Fine Dining Gold list comprising five-star eateries, such as Varq, Wasabi, Sakura, Blue Ginger and China Kitchen. The Fine Dining Silver section has places like Baci, Baluchi, Smoke House Grill, The Yum Yum Tree and Punjabi by Nature. Sohrab Sitaram of Tabula Rasa (featuring in the Fine Dining Bronze list) says, “Almost every third day, we have a group coming in with Go Delhi coupons. There’s a lot of excitement among people about this book.”Even chic bars in the city, such as Rick’s, The Blue Bar, Aqua, and Shalom find place in Go Delhi’s list. And yes, your search for the best bakeries in town will also end here. The book that was introduced last year by two self-confessed foodies —Shivani Sibal and Ruchi Sibal — has now hit the stands in a bigger and better avatar. "The idea was to ensure that no one’s starved for choice. You have varied categories of restaurants listed that would suit everyone’s budget," says Shivani. Go Delhi is also helping eateries broaden their consumer base. "Groups and families walk in with a coupon," says Ashutosh Kapur, manager of Blue Ginger, listed in the book.
