Eat, Pray, Love: Exploring the New Italian Menu at Ottimo at West View

When it comes to fine dining, very few can match up to the standards of ITC Maurya’s flagship rooftop restaurant, Ottimo at West View. With a stunning view of the Delhi’s green belt, the restaurant offers discerning gourmands with a selection of grilled meats, fine wines and spirits, fresh garden produce and baked goodies straight from the oven. 
Team Today’s Traveller sat down for a special Italian menu designed by the immensely talented Chef Akshaye Bhardwaj. It featured an irresistible and authentic 5-course meal, which, when paired with wine selected by Beverage Manager Rishabh Kohli and upcoming Sommelier Manish, lifted the experience to the next level. 

The sumptuous meal started with a delectable Burnt Onion and Potato Soup laced with creamy Brie Cheese. It went well with a glass of fine Gavi Cortese. Next in line was Burrata and Winter Black Truffle that perfectly complemented the rich taste of Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc. The succulent Chorizo Scallop with Panagratto paired with Martini Prosecco and the flavoursome Celery Cod paired with Danzante Pinot Grigio were welcome additions. Of course, no Italian meal is complete without pasta. So, creamy Pappardelle Caccio Peppe, paired with Chianti Ruffina Nippozzano were there to satiate our pasta cravings. The flavoursome Celery Cod and Lamb Chops with Saint Cosme Cote Du Rohne were the main courses, and the highlights of the evening. The meal came to an end with the  beloved Italian dessert Tiramisu and Banana Ricotta that were paired with Macchioato with Vanilla Foam. 
The exceptional talent of the gifted F&B professionals, Chef Akshaye, Rishab and Manish, was more than successful in creating a memorable gourmet affair with good food, delicious wine and some great conversation.
