Sunday is the day of rest, Sunday is the day I barely get out of my room, let alone the house. Sunday is the day I hibernate. But two weeks back, I somehow managed to drag myself out of the bed, to go meet a friend who was leaving town for a while. And what a wise decision that was! We landed at a relatively new restaurant in Indiranagar by the name – The Black Rabbit. I know, the name sounds rather dark. But the place was very charming!
They have an indoor and an outdoor seating. We chose to sit outside (You never really wish to sit inside in Bangalore, unless its raining). Beautifully set up place, with minimal decor. I like places like this. They are not too loud ans still have a style of their own. Each table had a small potted plant on it. The pot was in a form of a tiny black bucket. Extremely cute!
One thing which stood out for me in this restaurant was the plates. Most of the fine dining restaurants I’ve been to always have these fancy white plates. The Black Rabbit, with its unique name, served us our meals in black plates. Nice heavy black plates which give a very different vibe to this place. Yes I know, they are just plates!
Moving on to more important stuff. The food. Good Food!! We started our lunch with a started by the name – “Baked Filo Parcels stuffed with Mushrooms, spinach and Cheddar cheese”.
Crispy, fluffy, melt in mouth filo parcels. The sauce on the side only made it better. The sauce had a bitter sweet flavor, which worked perfectly with the bland taste of mushrooms. I absolutely loved this starter!
For main we became a little ambitious and ordered the vegetable Lasagna and Rosemary & Garlic marinated roast spring Chicken. Oh those dishes looked good!
The look of these dishes was half the battle won. And the taste… well something that looks this good cannot taste bad. They were both perfect lunch dishes. A little too heavy though. I parceled half of my main. But I left this restaurant a very happy woman! The Lasagna was melt in mouth cheese heaven with decent portions of veggies hidden inside it. The Chicken was perfectly cooked with a sauce which could not have been better.
A perfect place for a quiet meal. A perfect place for a fancy meal. Go ahead. give it a shot!
