Firstly, apologies for the late posting, and I presume, by this time, Bodega is not a very new joint in Kolkata food scenario.
it felt a little strange when I got a call with somebody asking for direction to my place and in the evening, a gentleman coming down physically for inviting me to the launch party of some food joint. But the actual surprise came, when I saw the invite. It was a strange looking dabba with the invitation card inside and a small bottle of their special mocktail with a jar of marinated olives. Well, the mocktail was pretty ordinary, but the invitation was mind blowing. Well, soo after, there was a fight between my son and my mom for possession of the red dabba and as usual, my son won the fight.
I was present at the said date and time at the venue and it looked like these guys know what they’re doing- feels good. The welcoming was perfect and we were seated on the first floor. Bodega is basically a lounge with special attention to their cocktil menu and with a fancy food menu. The ambience was perfect.
I must say, the presentation was fantastic for their cocktails, slightly quirky in certain cases. But, it was a fun party, so who cares ? Among them, I loved the Bengali mary (quite spicy), for which probably I’ll go again.
Frankly, as compared, the food was quite ok-ish, and has got a definite chance of improvement. Among them, I somehow, I liked their pork sausage salad and the spring rolls.
Would I go again ? Definitely yes, this would be a lovely place to hang out with friends. Though slightly on a pricey side, I still like this place.
Bon apetite !!!
