Delhi’s new chic place to be at, Diva Kitsch. Diva Restaurants’, celebrity chef, Ritu Dalmia get together with Priya & Charu Sachdev. An old bungalow converted into the store come restaurant give diners and shoppers an old world charm on the exterior. But inside you enter a more contemporary setting amidst a bit of kitsch. The store on the ground floor houses your favourite brands like Dolce & Gabbana, Stella McCartney, Alexander McQueen, YSL, Celine & Herve Leger amongst others.
We couldn’t get over the interiors. A chalkboard painted wall directs you the restaurant upstairs. We like the addition of white shelves with accessories placed atop. It adds realism to the concept. Fashion meets food at Diva Kitsch. As you go up, a large chandelier floats over your head. Almost feels like ping pong balls strung together. One two have been squished by some terrible customers. Faux flowers form the backdrop to one corner near the windows adding a tad of freshness.

|The Glass Shoe Chandelier|
The Glass Shoe chandelier definitely gets the most attention and is on top of the list. Especially from our friends who after a lot of inspection mixed with oohs and ahhs figured that the glass shoes were on pegs and could be easily picked off. Don’t worry none came crashing down because of us. A more contemporary modern look for an Asian restaurant, subtle tones have been mixed with splashes of colour. Pink and white checkered table napkins with blue table runners. Colourful glass bottle full niches, reminding you of the golawala with his various flavors.

A herringbone patterned wooden flooring forms one side of the restaurant. Followed by small black and white checkered tiles. An adorable cycle and birdcage are wrapped in little fairy lights. We know its been done a lot but still looks cute nonetheless!
The modern Asian restaurant is less oriental and more a fusion. So next time your around Defence Colony in Delhi, do drop in. For nothing else but at least the Glass Shoe Chandelier, the closest we can get to Cinderella’s Story!
