The Oberoi Grand has a new angle - 363°

The Oberoi Grand has a new angle - 363°

The coffee shop at The Grand Oberoi was always a chamber of character and charm. Amidst one of the busiest streets of the city, it always maintained a verdant interior enveloping the coffee and conversations. And then one day when the news broke out, that the coffee shop is opening in a new name with an all new menu, the city waited with much anticipation still attached to the memories of the old place. But it was given a second lease on life as a new casual fine-dining restaurant. It was redone in the name of threethixtythree°, the latest chapter of a story that began with the legendary success stories of Threesixtyº in New Delhi and continued with Threesixtyoneº in Gurgaon. The threethixtythree° experience begins at The Bar which is an intimate and high-spirited space with an arrangement of well-chosen wines in the Wine Story and rare single malts, and flows into the adjoining restaurant which is replete with natural light courtesy its large windows and skylights.

BlabberCat's verdict: It has the best sushi in town currently. Calcutta still feels the absence of variety in Japanese cuisine, especially sushi being in demand by a large part of fine-dining clientele. Japanese speciality chef Raul Borjas joins the team and will present live Sushi and Sashimi alongside a detailed Japanese curation. The mezze platter dips, appetisers and cold salads were put together right in time to beat the summer heat. 

The good news is that the signature dishes of The Oberoi Grand like the Smoked Hilsa and Lobster Thermidor continue to claim centre stage in the menu as well as Bengal classics which are a marked favourite with our outstation guests. However, besides winning the food points, overall the experience is upped and you forget where you are asna 400-square foot skylight has been punched through the middle of the restaurant, presenting a clear view of the sky. In an age where most interior design improvises with found objects or attempts cold minimalism, Three Sixty-Three Degrees, tips a hat to the roots of its space and remains progressive, pristine & timeless.

A home baker, whose Instagram food photography beats any restaurant in Kolkata, IIHM Young Chef India winners Garima Poddar and Simran Kapur, Kolkata Foodie girls Priyanka Gupta and Ritika Jaiswal, anonymous reporter who couldn’t disclose his portal for company’s policies were among the few who had come with big appetites and open minds. #KolkataFoodJourney presented Entrée to Dessert and The India Diaries was in association with Uber Cabs and dessert partner was Mrs Magpie, Chocolate Partner was Chocotarian, online media partner was BlabberCat.
