DANIELL’S TAVERN ~ Pan Indian Restaurant
Marrying legendary Indian heritage, meticulous local craftsmanship, cutting edge design and tracing the unrivalled scenery and architecture of Hindustan, Daniell’s Tavern at The Imperial comes alive with a brand new look showcasing a Live Kitchen and a menu that revisits India from the eyes of Thomas and William Daniells. This uncle and nephew team came to experience and paint the rich culture and culinary tradition of India’s picturesque locations in 1786, in the midst of colonial era to assist the expanding British Empire. The new menu seeks to define their gastronomic expedition with unique old world specialties from all the cities they visited.
In the words of Mr. Vijay Wanchoo Sr. Executive Vice President & General Manager The Imperial New Delhi “Imperial restoration experts have worked tirelessly to return the 'culinary tradition of our ancient land ' and to revive its legendary opulence. A strategically designed Live Kitchen promises to stir the imagination.
Giving an insight into the artists, Thomas and William Daniell started work in Calcutta and then moved up North to West. Travelling along the Ganges as far as Kanpur they also visited the Mughal cities of Agra and Delhi, capturing the essence of these places on their canvases. On their way back the Daniells stopped at Lucknow and were vastly influenced by the city’s royal resplendence. The next port of call for the artist duo was Madras and then Mysore followed by Bombay before they returned to England. An imposing number of 144 sceneries of India titled, ‘Oriental Scenery,’ was the outcome of the fascinating travels that the Daniells had embarked upon.
