Design & Architecture
The earthy & organic sensibility of Lodi – The Garden Restaurant is highlighted by its lush botanical surrounding, pebbled walkways, cane & wooden furniture and bamboo railings. The Lodi has seating that is split between the Atrium, the Bar Floor, the Terrace, the Garden Area and the Ground Floor.
The Garden area houses a variety of trees including the Jamun & Peepal tree, some more than a 100 years old. Comforting colors like orange have been used to ensure the seamless blending-in of the serene natural environment with that of the Restaurant.
Primarily a European menu with Middle Eastern influences, Lodi – The Garden Restaurant emphasizes on freshness and seasonality. The use of seasonal fruits and vegetables being the fundamental rule in Lodi’s kitchen, the restaurant revamps its menu every season, thus, providing a fresh menu every quarter, which not many places in Delhi can pride themselves on. With an extensive wine list & single malts, Lodi’s bar is a highlight for the restaurant. The Deli houses fresh homemade preserves, butters, sauces, dips & fresh organic vegetables.
The restaurant serves house specials such as Salate Horiatiki, herb crusted Manali Trout and Andaman Jheengha, using locally sourced, seasonal produce. The Lodi Chocolate Mousse is a particular favourite. Chefs maintain minimal cold storage of ingredients. Herbs are grown in-house and Fresh fruit smoothies and vegetable juices are offered, subject to seasonal availability.
