Kolkata Restaurant Chilli’s Grill Opens at Acropolis Mall
Chilli’s Grill and Bar opened their third outlet in the city recently at Acropolis Mall. The other two outlets are located at South City Mall and Quest Mall respectively.
This outlet located at Acropolis Mall has a unique look which is quite different from the other two outlets. It has a thirty five feet high glass ceiling which is a first for any restaurant located in this city. This gives a great look to the restaurant during the day with the sunlight coming in through the ceiling. The night look is a bit romantic.
The bar which will soon be in operational mode at this outlet is also on the wish list of many patrons. The bar will boast of both local and international alcoholic beverages. Mocktails are also available at the bar in this restaurant.
The restaurant’s look is more of a relaxed lounge type feel. The other two outlets have more of the fine dining feel. But the open area will be a good place for clients to chill with friends. The authorities revealed that the place may be given to private parties in future if they find clients for that purpose.
The food is of international quality standard at this outlet too. Vegetarian and Non-vegetarian dishes abound in the menu. Pastas, salads, burgers, premium margaritas, desserts are all available at this restaurant.
If you are looking for a new place to dine out with family or friends during this festive season, Chilli’s will make for the perfect destination!!

The smashing and much loved pair of Dev and Subhashree is back yet again. Kaushik Ganguly’s upcoming film Dhumketu will see the two popular actors pairing up. The shooting of this film is currently in progress in different parts of the city.
The story of the film Dhumketu is about Megh (Dev) who works as a tea estate manager in North Sikkim. A certain crisis suddenly makes him jobless. With not much employment options in the hills, Megh fights hard to bring back stability in the life of his family. Whether he is successful or not is what the film will showcase. The character of Megh’s wife is being played by Subhashree.
Dev’s discipline, his physical presence on screen made the director select him for the role. Moreover, he wanted to go out of his comfort zone and see how he could mould Dev into becoming Megh.
