Food Revolution in CP

Connaught place is a magnet. It attracts all kinds of people with all kinds of purposes. Whether it’s shopping, entertainment, working, setting up chilling scenes or simply eating out. CP creates majestic patterns in people’s head owing to the vivid variety of experiences on offers. There is a constant flow of people that submerges and then re-emerges without taking a halt of any sorts.

New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) is planning to make the inner circle of Connaught Place a pedestrian zone and barring the entry of vehicles in order to reduce congestion and contribute to an increase in the foot space. This initiative will definitely affect the demographics and dynamics of CP. In the past few months, there has been a significant plunge in the number of restaurants in the area, which doesn’t seem to come to a standstill anytime soon. With a vivid history and a huge popularity, CP seems to be attracting brilliant cafes and restaurants resonating with its diversity.

We have put together a list of ‘newly opened’ and ‘upcoming’ restaurants in CP that’ll undoubtedly make you look at it with different eyes and appreciate its timelessness.
