For someone living in Delhi, who hasn’t heard of Epicuria Mall at the Nehru Place Metro Station. No other metro station in the city has been able to create a better vibe with a wide array of places to go to eat or enjoy at, even on the weekends. There are fantastic spots here that are as good for an evening coffee date as they are for a great Friday or a Saturday night with your sqaud. This metro station has snatched away the attention Greater Kailash 1,2 and Select Citywalk used to get in South Delhi. Our favourite spots here definitely include these -


1. Fio Cookiehouse & Bar

A pebbled pathway with potted greenery along a tidy lawn, meant for al fresco dining, takes you to Fio Cookhouse. Awash with natural light during daytime, the innovative interiors look inviting. The façade to the kitchen has wooden frame with niches for potted plants and mementos among other things. There is ample space and the décor is charming. It's a perfect romantic restaurant in Nehru Place for an impromptu date.

2. Social

A great place to chill, with friends, the seating here is like the ones in a theatre and gives a panoramic view of the whole restaurant. There are also giant-wheel swings in the form of tables to sit, which is again a new concept. Using a very interesting concept, they create a dance floor by pulling the chairs & tables to the roof, so you dance just beneath with the furniture dangling over your head. The food tastes great and the names of cocktails are inspired by Game of Thrones.
