Eat chocolate

Every time I pass this restaurant off Cenotaph Road, I am reminded of Marie Antoinette's saying something about bread and cake. Chocolate would probably have been a more vulgar way of distancing from the proletariat. 

It is not for nothing that this anecdote from French history comes to mind on seeing Bread & Chocolate. It was originally set up in Pondicherry before opening its first branch in Chennai in 2020, just after the first (and maybe the second) wave of the pandemic had died down.

Must go here; if it is half as good as its Pondicherry parent, it will be wonderful!
