Can’t get a table at Helly Raichura’s fine diner Enter Via Laundry? Enter via the front door to find its more-casual sibling. At the bar, guests are invited to enjoy snacks prepared in the fine diner kitchen alongside cocktails.

Here, Raichura revisits hits from past Enter Via Laundry menus, and serve dishes found throughout the Subcontinent. (Enter Via Laundry’s menus have showcased Keralan, Goan, Kashmiri and Mughlai food, among others.) You might find bataka na bhajiya (potatoes fried in gram flour batter served with house-made tomato-and-pineapple ketchup); chakhna (or bar snacks – here, it’s spicy fried peanuts); and falooda, a layered dessert-drink hybrid that Raichura makes with ice-cream, house-made rose syrup, basil seed, vermicelli, cashews, jelly and fruit.

Cocktails are inspired by some of the Indian drinks Raichura enjoyed as a kid – including mango lassi, sugarcane juice and kala khatta (crushed ice with jambu syrup). A ginger spritz plays with the flavours of sugarcane juice, adding ginger, rhum agricole (sugarcane rum), and jasmine and Ceylon teas to create a light, blush-coloured drink. And a new version of kala khatta is a boozy drink made with Davidson’s plum and served with a sprinkling of chaat masala on top. There’s also a handful of wines by the glass and some classic cocktails featuring a good helping of Dutch Rules dry gin and West Indian bitters.
