AS FEATURED IN...
From the From the May 2008 Food & Wine Go List
Restaurateur Riyaaz Amlani brought chic beachfront dining to Mumbai when he opened Salt Water Grill. He recently arrived in Delhi, this time with a more daring concept: The kitchen cold-smokes food using different types of wood—maple for chicken, cherrywood for red meat, hickory or cider for tomatoes. That treatment even applies to the cocktails, like smoked-melon mojitos. Both the dining room and the bar (which doubles as a music venue) have a loungey feel; downstairs, the ember-orange wall is etched with willow branches.
We loved: Smoked chicken-liver pâté.
