The first visit to Pluck (read the experience here), as part of a familiarization tour, was alluring. Following the concept of “Farm-to-table”, the presentation of the dishes and the variety on offer was simply invigorating. The restaurant utilizes natural light and played with it in abundance, which lifts the ambiance and the mood to notches above.
The trip this time was to experience the Pullman Art Brunch – hosted at Pluck & Pling – a modern day eatery and a vibrant lux-lounge respectively. Sundays especially call for all things grand. The Sunday Brunch @ Pluck, lets you indulge lazily with their lavish extravagant spread.
The brunch spread offer an array of selections, starting from a fresh farm-to-table salad bar, Indian and South Asian cuisine, Modern European, a live carving section dishing out roasted lamb shanks and chicken with your choice of jus and herbs – the chicken was too dry to have but the lamb was amazing; to live pasta stations. The selection of cuisines and the varieties are overwhelming. It definitely leaves you confused on what to try and what to miss. As it is a brunch setting, the menu also holds assortments of amuse-bouche, cold cuts and refreshing flavored milkshakes to name a few. We were also given out a brief overview on how they keep on changing their Indian menu every week. There are choices of the drink you can choose from which includes champagne, wine and the brunch special cocktails or mocktails.
Head out to the salad bar and pick from the choices available or pick your ingredients, the fresh leaves from the in-house farm and the sauces, and the chef will make your version of the greens – we tried a mixed leaf salad with some olives, pickles and sun dried tomatoes – the best thing is the freshness in the farm produce! Enjoy the hors d’oeuvres served straight from their hot-on-wheels at your table – this week it included appetizers from the Awadh region, galouti kebabs, soya chaap & shami to name a few. The aloo nazakat is a must try. There was also street food to opt from, and a complete range of dimsums to go out for. Ask out the Chef’s at each of the counters for their recommendations and you got to have the life of your time.
Be aware not to fill up your appetite with the main course, because the dessert section is there to spoil you for choice. The array consist of varieties of cheesecakes, muffins, mousse, tarts, scone, candies, chocolate pops to choose from, and you have to literally stop yourself from over eating.
Pluck’s extravagant spread has raised the bar of Sunday brunching, and this is a place where you won’t mind visiting frequently. To add to, there is an art exhibition by an upcoming artist every Sunday, which is a very noble way of showcasing talents.
