Ghicha silk sari

Today, I had lunch with a bunch of women in The Leela Palace, Chanakya Puri. 
The Leela Palace is relatively new. In afternoon, the only restaurant that is open for lunch is The Qube. And they only serve buffet (too bad for me). It has striking modern glass house which overlooks the expansive lawns.
But if you are on a nice romantic date at night, I would highly recommend Le Cirque, which is International French, Italian gourmet restaurant on the 10th floor. It is Delhi's very sought after restaurant that features avant-garde bar. 
Some of the signature dishes at Le Cirque include Arancini Risotto, Mama Egi’s Ravioli, Tuna in Pistachio Crust, Paupiette of Black Cod and Crème Brulee. Each of the dishes offered is authentic and classic allowing guests to experience the truly innovative cuisine. Guests can also savour some of the Le Cirque classic dishes which are served at other locations of this world-famous Italian restaurant group.
Over the years, this classic restaurant has become synonymous with high-glamour dining in New York and continues the trend here at Chanakyapuri, Delhi.

Today I wore a Ghicha silk sari, bought directly from the weavers who work for me in Madhya Pradesh. With winters approaching, it is an ideal thing to wear. It is a nice copper colour, with a big temple border and a striped blouse and palla.
