The California Boulevard, Rajouri Garden, New Delhi
We visited the Gurgaon outlet of ‘The California Boulevard’ a few weeks back and ever since I have been trying to go to their Rajouri Garden’s outlet, which is the first outlet of this restaurant. The place is very close to the Rajouri Garden Metro Station. Both the restaurants are on similar lines in terms of ambiance, look and seating arrangement. The outlet is setup over two floors and the top floor houses the ‘Chef’s Table’, a unique concept in fine dining. The facade is remarkable and can be seen from a distance.
The California Boulevard is known to bring the luxury of the ‘West’ to the plates in Delhi. The grandeur can be spotted at every nook and corner. The walls are decorated with famous Hollywood stars and the LED displays Hollywood news and journeys. The Harley Davidson is among the main attractions here and the Walk of Fame takes you straight to California! Special emphasis needs to given to the staff who are always warm and happy to help. Staffs wear gloves to keep the luxury peerless.
