As the city records fresh COVID-19 cases, the Delhi Disaster Management Authority has permitted restaurants to function with only 50 per cent capacity. If you think your Christmas plans have gone for a toss, here’s some good news. For those planning to have an intimate gathering in the comforts of your home, these eateries across Delhi-NCR are offering a traditional Christmas feast, right at your doorsteps.
Started in 2015 out of their home kitchen, Artisan Meats by the Bawa siblings—Meherwan and Mehma—offers an array of locally-sourced produce for a typical gourmet experience. Their Christmas menu this year can be home-delivered. From honey-glazed ham to spice rub whole-roasted chicken stuffed with vegetables; both these options will be served with a side of red wine and peppercorn gravy. “I believe people have become more interested in small gatherings nowadays, while also wanting the restaurant experience at home,” shares Meherwan. The dishes must be ordered at least 48 hours in advance.
Price: Rs 1,050 per roast chicken; honey-glazed ham at Rs 2,000 per kg
