When All Roads Lead To 52 Janpath

Thursday afternoon. May 12, 2016. A day I'd been anxiously waiting for. In fact, why only me, the entire food community in Delhi-NCR was hoping to be at 52 Janpath that day. After all, how many new cafes, diners, or fine-dining restaurants do you personally know of that invite bloggers for a preview lunch even before the property has opened doors for everyone?


This event was made possible by efforts from Roma, the mainstay of the Delhi Foodies Insta Meet (DFIM) community.
