Mar 30, 2018

Every minute detail has been looked into while creating the retro ambience of Chapter 2. The Chaudhury brothers roped in National Award winning art director, Nitish Roy to create a feel of the period.

From custom made 3 Dimensional photo frames showcasing portraits of the Hollywood stars of the yesteryears, to the real life displays of Marilyn Monroe & Elvis Presley on the walls to a Cadillac car adorning the well stocked bar, to the table-top designs displaying collages of newspaper clips of the bygone era, Chapter 2 is exuberant in every aspect, oozing the old world charm. The costumes of Team Chapter 2 have been specially designed by ace fashion designer, Ms Agnimitra Paul.

Chapter 2 is 70 seater plus restaurant with a dedicated Private Dining Area for hosting 20 at a time.Magnolia's at Park Street was set up during World War 2 by an American lady which was Park Street's first soda fountain and a favourite hangout for the American and British soldiers. Park Street, where Louis Banks with fiery Pam Crain crooned at Mocambo and later at Blue Fox and feisty Usha Uthup had everybody stomping on the dance floor at Trinca's.

 With the music and entertainment, Calcutta evolved as a strong dining destination in the country; the British leaving behind a strong legacy of European cuisine with a mix of East Indian food culture which soon became a cuisine synonymous to "Continental".

Firpo's at Chowringhee and later Skyroom at Park Street were so popular that people from as far afield as Manchester and New York made bookings in advance to make sure that they didn't miss out on the experience. Sky Room was much more than a place that served great food.It represented the cultural crossroads, which made Calcutta unique. It is ironic that having survived the most turbulent years through the sixties and seventies these two landmark restaurants had to close down. With Chapter 2, now Kolkata has a reason to smile and raise a toast.
