Celebrate la Fête nationale with a fiesta fit for a king at the Imperial

There are not many places in Delhi where you can have an authentic French cuisine, in fact you can just count them on your fingers the few that are known for it. So when Luxepointindia was invited for a taste of French flavours at the 1911 restaurant at the Imperial Hotel in Janpath we knew it would be genuinely superb. The 1911 Restaurant and Nostalgia at 1911 Brasserie are celebrating the Bastille Day with with a 17 course menu leaving you absolutely spoilt for choice.

We were invited with a group of food and lifestyle media to taste the cuisine. The afternoon for food review took an air of fun camaraderie as we took turns in posing for pictures with each other while talking about the beautiful spread of food in front of us.

Nostalgia at 1911 Brasserie took the concept of 1911Restaurant forward, and is the ideal venue that revisits the classic European menu in an old-world ambience, for an ethereal experience. French cuisine is one of the most admired cuisines in the world, and with this festival we want to take our guests on an authentic gastronomical journey to celebrate the occasion like no other.”
