Whether you are a hunter or a gatherer, make sure to visit this Room

Nestled on the third floor of The Crescent Mall overlooking the Qutub Minar is a dining room with space for 42 adventurous Epicureans, ready to embark on a sensory degustation. Adjacent is a kitchen laboratory, equal in size to the dining arena. Lining the polished steel benches are gadgets more recognised by those in white lab coats than white chefs jackets; dehydrators, vacuum chambers, thermo circulators, liquid nitrogen canisters, pH scales and brix meters, to name a few.

And it is in this space that the way the world views dining in Delhi will change forever. Brought to you by the restaurateurs responsible for Smoke House Grill and Deli, Riyaaz Amlani, Shiv Karan Singh and Harmeet Bajaj.

Riyaaz Amlani's restaurant group Impresario, creators of favourite gourmet destinations has taken the concept of a handmade restaurant to new heights with Smoke House Room. Hospitality heavyweights Shiv Karan Singh and Harmeet Bajaj of Dam Good Restaurants again collaborate with Impresario. 

Creating its own identity and claiming a position at the forefront of modernist fine dining Smoke House Room is a space where imagination takes to the plate. After honing his skills in Western cuisine during extensive experience as the executive head chef of Impresario, Chef Gresham's visionary kitchen sorcery is a unique new style of gastronomy. 

Designed as a dining experience for the five senses Smoke House Room's menu offers something for every daring diner -- from the 'hunter' and 'gatherer' tasting menus, to a-la-carte modern cuisine and finally the tour de force 'grand degustation'. 

A singular style of progressive cuisine offers the diner an edible journey, bewitching with every bite. In 'A Gathering of Mushrooms' diners tiptoe their way through the undergrowth of a mystical forest, marveling at the flavour combinations of coffee soil, eight varieties of mushroom and garlic-olive oil pudding. 'The P Soup' plays with your tongue in its alliteration and combination of pumpkin, pumpkin carrot air, and not a 'pea' in sight. 

A new dimension of decadence in Br �l �e of Foie, slightly seared sumptuous foie gras with raspberry reduction, foamed brioche, compressed apple, pine-nut chikki will leave you speechless and satiated. Evoking emotions through epicure Smoke House Room's temptations take the diner on a journey to new realms of taste. So what are you waiting for?
