The Radisson Blu Resort Temple Bay Mamallapuram recently launched Wharf 2.0 – a brand new version of its popular seaside restaurant. Offering a unique al fresco setting, Wharf 2.0 opened its doors to guests from September 9.

The restaurant is located within the property, right on the sandy beach overlooking the Bay of Bengal, from where guests have a view of the UNESCO World Heritage Shore Temple monument. Every element in the revamped restaurant has been picked to reflect a relaxed Bohemian vibe – from the outdoor open shacks to the nature-inspired menu. “Being surrounded by the splendid elements of nature every day, the influence for the menu came naturally to our culinary team. Earth, fire, wind, water, and air, are heroes at Wharf 2.0 with entire courses dedicated to each of them,” said Elango Rajendran, GM, Radisson Blu Resort Temple Bay Mamallapuram.

So, what exactly can you eat out there now? From plank-grilled bourbon and honey salmon with seasonal vegetables, mushroom and smoked mozzarella empanadas, slow roasted duck breast with honey and herb jus, Afghani angare jhinga to gulab jamun cheesecake with green tea moss and wild berry; you can savour a wide range of options. In addition, you can pick their own pasta combinations, or meat and sauce combinations, with pairing wines to go with them all. A range of tikkas, roasts and fried sides are available and can be ordered by the sticks or dozens.

 “Wharf 2.0 has been conceptualised for the free-spirited, nature-loving aficionados of fine food. We’ve taken the easy-going spirit of this beautiful beach side town, combined it with our expertise in food and beverage, and concocted an experience that will leave your senses refreshed, your tummies satiated, and your soul happy,” said Vikram Cotah – COO at GRT Hotels & Resorts.

 Wharf 2.0 will be open for lunch and dinner every day. Reservations can be made by calling the resort on 044 2744 3636.
