Trés
Contemporary Modern European Cuisine

Located in what is known as the new restaurant district Lodhi Colony, Trés has made a name for itself as a fine dining restaurant with global European flavors in Delhi. Co- created by Chefs Jatin Mallick, Julia Carmen Desa and Jamsheed Bhoteis, it has been my – and my families ultimate favorite restaurant to visit in Delhi.

I first heard of Trés in an article two months into my move to Delhi congratulating the restauranteurs on their revamp of the brand and menu. I am a Food Network addict and my idea of fun is binge watching Restaurant: impossible or Gordon Ramsay revamping a restaurant in need, not saying this was the case with Trés but exciting stuff nevertheless and I needed to try it out- you can tell I suffer from severe case of FOMO! As I walked in through the heavy brass door of the restaurant I was instantly wowed with the warm toned interior, elegant table setting and the 14- foot long dinning bar. I honestly didn’t expect to find a fine dinning restaurant like this in Lodhi, its more suited to be situated in a hotel, but that is the beauty of India, expect the unexpected! And in this case its was a lovely surprise.

I sat down and was handed some menus and shortly after a delicious warm bread basket was placed in front of us…sorry I really shouldn’t just say bread…glass sourdough bread! Soft light interior with a delicately crunchy exterior. Not many places serve glass bread, I knew there and then if they can bake bread this good the rest of the meal will be exceptional.

The menu is short, clear and concise. Lots of options for both veg and non veg eaters. During my first visit I ordered the Quick Tossed King Prawn and Calamari starter flavored with a  lime chili drizzle and cucumber radish salad. The flavors were simply perfect together. As a main I selected the 6oz Tenderloin Steak with truffle sauce. I cannot recommend this dish enough….it is truly amazing, the meat is cooked to perfection and the warm truffle sauce combined with the creamy mash and meat is heavenly. I always have this internal battle with myself when its time to order a main at Trés… ‘should I be boring and have the tenderloin again or should I try something new?” the meat always wins! I am happy to report that I have introduced many friends and family members to Trés and they have ordered other items off the menu.

For Starters the Josper Grilled Chicken legJuju Chicken Wings, Burrata Salad with Kombu Marinated Tomatoes and Salad of Black Quinoa are usually repeat orders. For the mains we have tried almost all pasta’s and risottos and they are divine. The Sandwiches a lovely especially with their delightful bread.

Piece of advice…leave space for dessert when you visit Trés because they are exceptional, not only do they make their sorbets and ice cream in house (try the Homemade Cream Tasting Platter) the signature desserts are to die for. To name a few; The deconstructed Tiramisu my husbands favorite, The Single Origin Molten Chocolate Souffle, Créme Brûlée and my personal favorite the Matcha and Lemon everyone who knows me knows that they would need to order their own as I DO NOT share this dessert.

I cannot count how many times I have shared a meal with people I love at Trés. When my parents visited, Trés was at the top of the list for their 45th wedding anniversary dinner. I highly recommend Trés for any occasion you will not be disappointed.
