Sunday spread

With the winter chill getting worse by the day, most of us are not too enthusiastic about venturing out early in the day. But here's a comforting reason. The Pewter Room, the multi-cuisine fine dining restaurant in Sector 26, is now dishing out a Sunday breakfast menu that offers an array of Continental, Punjabi and British-style breakfast options. Known for their innovative set meals for lunch and dinner, the breakfast spread includes freshly-baked bakery basket, choice of eggs, pancakes and waffles along with fresh fruits. The fresh bakery includes Danish croissants, berry and chocolate muffins, almond breads, jam tarts, buns and more. We recommend the Smoked Salmon Scrambled Eggs. The dish is served on toasted bread with hash brown and tomato. It's not easy to find homestyle aloo or gobhi paranthas in restaurant menus and we are glad The Pewter Room decided to include them. Those who prefer South Indian, choose from dosa, uttappam and poori aloo bhaji. Another highlight is the fluffy pancakes served with maple syrup, clarified butter, fruit compote and nutella. Breakfast is priced between Rs 70 to Rs 200 for individual dishes and Rs 249 onwards for the combos. For us, the extended breakfast timing from 9 am to 3 pm is the icing on the cake.

Mixed Bag

After the recently concluded Punjab Fashion Tour, comes a Punjab Fashion Week. Contrary to its name, the latter is like any other lifestyle exhibition with multiple stalls by designers and brands from Delhi, Mumbai, Hyderabad and a handful from Punjab. So don't go expecting back-to-back fashion shows by leading designers from the country at the venue as it is only an opportunity to view some new names from the region such as Mukesh Mahi from Amritsar and Pammi Sidhu from Ludhiana. The two-day event in Chandigarh (the week will include Amritsar and Jalandhar too) that began on Saturday at Shivalik View, includes an off-site fashion show at Score, Sector 8 on Sunday evening. "The idea is to take designer labels from Delhi and Mumbai across Punjab and encourage direct buyer to consumer and buyer to buyer interaction," remarked Himanshu Barthwal, one of the organisers of the event. Formally inaugurated by singer Lakwinder Wadali on Saturday, the lifestyle exhibition offers trousseau wear options including jewellery by Khurana Jewellery House from Amritsar. What caught our eye were long coats (at affordable prices) for women by a Ludhiana-based brand and the collection of trendy and colourful satchels and totes by Chandigarh-based label SCGWFA. To add to the potpourri is a stall by Rocky S, Samsaara lifestyle, Rattan Saree, and an exhibitor from Pakistan.
