100 ft - Boutique. Bar. Restaurant.

My mom is visiting us. She offered to baby sit N while we went out for lunch one Sunday. I wanted to go to 100 ft since quite some time. S and I had been there P before marriage. I wanted to revisit the place to re-live those memories. And the place is beautiful as ever. In fact it has become better. I loved the ambiance, food and the boutique.
100 ft is bang on the 100 ft road in Indiranagar. So no complicated directions, going round and round or getting lost. They have valet service for parking so saves you the hassle of finding parking space.



They have 3 areas for dining - the open courtyard on the ground floor, an indoor dining area surrounded by the boutique and the covered terrace on the 1st floor.



The gound floor dining area has a mini lotus pond with splashes of teal blue thrown in. Love this colour. Notice the chairs below. There is a bar on the ground floor.


The dining area in the boutique.



The lovely shaded terrace seating. If you want this location on a weekend, making reservations is a good idea.
The boutique had unique, funky, eclectic, kitsch kind of stuff. Eye candy kinds too.


Home decor stuff by Mukul Goyal like the wine bottle rack above. I like his creative twist on regular home decor things.


Vintage hindi film posters.

Coffee mugs and glassware. And yes, that's me in my peep toes. I love love love peep toes - in heels, flats, any form.

Cookie tins from Chumbak

More from Mukul Goyal

Funky umbrella anyone?

Notice the antique lamp shaped candle stands?

Chai ketli painted with hindi movie names

And shoes, so many of 'em!

The boutique is a shopper and collector's paradise. I could spend hours there. Sigh!

The restaurant was great. There was a bar in the terrace restaurant too. Loved the chef's specials of the day. The food is true to the cuisine - Mediterranean.
Service was quick and efficient - the servers did not hover around irritatingly and were around just when you needed them. In fact when I asked for my drink to be changed they did it quickly and with a smile.
This is a place I would definitely recommend if you love your pastas and wine. Oh did I mention that they have a good collection of wines.

Edited to add - The place welcomes kids. But IMO, if you have active adventurous brats, like mine, who like to see, touch and explore things, it is better to leave them at home and enjoy your lunch/dinner in peace.


Linking in to Patty's Weekly Party and Tanya's Tea-Time Thursday. Have a great week ahead!
