Following the opening of the Bakstage rock pub in the IT hub of Salt Lake, Kolkata, Sudhir Ahuja of Bonnie Foods Ltd, has opened a cafe space Back to the Desi Cafe between the ground and mezzanine floors. It measures 2,200 sqft, and has a seating capacity of 60. The food served here is Anglo-Indian, and Ahuja expects a daily footfall of 150.
English interiors, an Anglo-Indian cuisine with touches of continental and local flavours, book shelves, Wi Fi and music add to the mood and ambiance of the place, which targets both young and adult customers.
Says Ahuja, “The concept is about connecting with your roots through its cuisine, and comfortable interiors. There will be boutique hotel opening shortly.”
