Nueva Review

So what happens when the country’s most flamboyant public figure decides to partner with a chef who is renowned for eclectic culinary styles? Well, I’m going to spare you of a lengthy philosophical conclusion, and simply say that the result is known as ‘Nueva’. This spanking new (fairly new) establishment is the brainchild of Chef Michael Swamy, who found a partner in none other than Virat Kohli.

This joint dishes out some unique South American delicacies along with a few mainstream European favourites. It’s conveniently located within the Sangam Courtyard Complex, so accessibility and parking are never really an issue.

Step inside and everything about Nueva feels premium. However, according to Team FNL, a couple of elements were a tad bit unnecessary… nothing jarring per say, but easily avoidable. The staff was extremely knowledgeable, courteous and friendly, but for some reason they were all given pseudo Spanish names, which was a little strange becuase it felt like that unsuccessful trend employed by most 90s call-centres desperately trying to shed their Indian identity and geographic location.

We ordered a wide array of dishes from Nueva’s extensive menu; as is the case with all our ‘Secret Service’ reviews. The presentation for almost every dish was spectacular. The taste, however, still has room for improvement. The first bite into most dishes packed a lot of flavour, but sadly seemed to lack a bit of substance towards the end … Umm, how I should I put it? Think of it this way — the foreplay was great, but the grand finale wasn’t quite orgasmic!

There were six of us who dined that night, and we ordered a lot of food. Our bill was about ₹ 1,200 per person. For a place this premium, that is quite impressive!
