The cuisine is contemporary, surprising and delicious, but so are the cocktails, almost artsy
“Never will the Twains meet” Can the bright lights of sunny times meet the mellow vibe of happy hour? As cosmopolitans trade places with cappuccinos, our cup is literally overflowing at Rosie & Tillie, Delhi’s Saket’s newest entertainment outlet. This experiential restaurant positions itself beautifully as a unit of opposites as it visibly transitions from a daytime cafe to an evening gastropub. Unlike Cinderella’s witch hour when the spell breaks at midnight, Tillie unveils her evening glory at 7 p.m., when the cheery lights of Rosie arching over ecru walls give way to the warm elegance of Tillie in rust. and copper.
Rosie’s brunch options, ingeniously curated and colorful versions of G&T’s, and mimosas bubble up in the promise of a moody lounge with edgy beats against the punch of jazz. With a clearly delineated indoor-outdoor space, the interiors are delicately rounded off by nostalgic diners. The cuisine is contemporary, surprising and above all delicious. But we have lost our hearts and much of our appetite for liquid pleasures. The Old Fashioned which uses infused bourbon replacing the angostura bitters with citrus is a sophisticated start, if you like things sweet and pink the Bubblegum Cosmo treats its vodka with cotton candy and bubblegum infusion as indicated by his name. With many options that are vegan, gluten-free, or made just for you, service is as seamless as the transition from Rosie to Tillie.
Must have Imitation Tiramisu: Not a deconstructed version, but a playful dessert that plays with familiar flavors: Bailey’s Dipped Almond Jaconde, White Chocolate Namelaka and Coffee Almond Tuile. Plus, Karaage Eggplant with Sticky Pineapple Teriyaki is a dream constructed of textured eggplant.
