About Connaught Place (CP), Central Delhi, Delhi NCR
Connaught Place is the heart of Delhi pulsating with history, power, culture and life. This complex node of historical buildings and patches of dense green foliage today, used to be a ridge covered with kikar trees and housed by jackals. Residents of Kashmere Gate and Civil Lines visited during the weekends for partridge hunting. This area was later developed by the government as a central business district and was named after Prince Arthur, 1st Duke of Connaught. Development of Connaught Place fell upon the shoulders of W.H Nicholls, the chief architect to the Government of India, but later the work was given to Robert Tor Russel who went on to design the complex as it is today. With time Connaught Place grew in shape and size welcoming the first cinema, restaurants and posh homeowners in its fold.

About Italian Cuisine
The quality of Italian food may surprise you at ‘IT’ of The Grand. The chef maybe Indian but he dishes out some amazingly authentic Italian food resulting in the popularity. The pastas are beautifully made and is of the highest quality. ‘Diva – The Italian Restaurant’ is Chef Ritu Dalmia’s pet project where she handles the mantle and manages to offer beautiful Italian food in very reasonable prices to her patrons. The restaurant is stylish and quaint with main focus being on the food. A must visit. Located in a terrace garden at Nehru Place ‘FIO Cookhouse And Bar’ is a wonderful place to spend a relaxing evening. In evenings however the place transforms itself into a high energy zone where fashionable set drops in for a peppy evening. Food is spectacular.
