I had  dinner some weeks back at a new restaurant in Chennai- in Neelangarai on the East Coast Road called the Beach Club, the latest project of the talented director and cinematographer Suresh Chandra Menon  ( of Crimson Chakra fame) which offers a new concept: a family/group/couple can spend a day in this beach side bungalow equipped  with a swimming pool, a library, pool tables, a restaurant and even water sports for the family and a day spa ( to be launched soon).



I loved the tastefully decorated restaurant and rooms with some striking art work  as well as a mural with the sea theme done on a stretch of wall near the swimming pool.

The ambience in the evening was romantic with mood lighting and the beach framed like a canvas beyond your table.  Occupy the stone benches that overlook the sea if your prefer just moon watching!


The food is Continental with some fusion dishes that are interesting, with chef Anand Sankaranarayanan of ‘Cornucopia’ fame heading the kitchen. Definitely an opening of the year to watch out for. Head there and try it out. Ultimately the Beach Club wins you just by its magical location.
