A new beginning with a new menu. After a forgettable year, Hit Wicket in FE Block is wooing back clients by adding a variety of cuisine to its menu and refashioning its character. 

“Earlier, it was a pasta-pizza place with some tandoor and Chinese dishes. The feel was of a lounge café and the clientele was largely the youth and the IT crowd. Now the younger generation has less income at their disposal to eat out as frequently as they used to. Many have had their pay packages reduced. So we want to focus on families,” said Md. Faizullah, the managing director of Impreza Kitchen and Restaurant, which runs the eatery.

This is not the first time the address is seeing a change of character. Before Faizullah bought the place, it used to be a hookah lounge called Ground Zero.

The place therefore has been divided into a restaurant with bright lights and a lounge with sofa sets and a giant screen TV. The latter will continue to have an all-day menu, with Italian dishes and tea, shakes and mocktail.

The restaurant has started serving south Indian and Pan Asian dishes. “Try our vegetable, chicken and lamb stews with Appam. We also have half a dozen types of biryani,” says the chef, pointing to Chennai Military Biryani as a speciality.
