The evening began with guests gathering in the bar area of this large capacity restaurant, while a burgundy – gold curtain separated them from the surprise of the main venue.
At the moment of the “Big Reveal,” the massive red curtains parted, allowing guests to witness the ornately decorated main hall of New Delhi Restaurant, specially adorned for this theme night..
