Frisco, a 50-seater family bistro is owned by Ranbir Batra, a famous restaurateur who also owns the famous New Yorker in Mumbai. Frisco in Spanish means free. As soon as you reach the location, Lane 7 in Koregaon Park, you are actually free from all shor in the city! ;-).
Ambience:: The minute you walk in you can feel the freshness of the place with beautiful wall hangings, calm environment, leisure plays and a unique bicycle table right near the window. Though the place is not very large so it is divided into lower and mezzanine sections, and is abundant with natural light. Aesthetically done mezzanine floor have sofas and tables with hues of white and blue. What I found interesting was the hanged black board showing the speciality of the day!
Location::In between number of pubs, fine dine restaurants and cafés in Koregaon Park, Frisco is easy to find. It is located in the quite lane no. 7 neighbouring Post91, Brooklyn Shuffle, Mojo buffet to name a few.
Food:: Frisco is an Italian-American all day breakfast bistro. They have delectable varieties in breakfast from Smoked Salmon Benedict to Pancakes. Simple menu divided interestingly into Small Plates, Big Plates surely guarantees to bring back customers. Since, we were there by invitation, our menu was fixed with the signature dishes by Chef Sourabh.
We all started with the Thirst Quenchers (they have not started with alcohol yet). So we ordered much read and heard about - Thai Iced Tea, Hibiscus Tea, Lime Iced Soda- Ice-cream Soda, Ginger Mint Fizz and Basil Mojito.
Thai Iced-Tea made with lemon-grass and condensed milk had cinnamon flavour. It was very heavy to finish. In the first sip you can feel each flavour oozing in your mouth.
Bright red coloured Hibiscus tea is great choice for health freak people. It was a herbal tea infusion served chilled. But unfortunately, I could not find the taste of hibiscus at all!
Lime Iced Soda- Ice cream Soda- It certainly caught our attention- Colourful big glass of soda and ice-cream was making it look beautiful. The taste was also up-to the mark.
Ginger Mint Fizz- Nice taste of Ginger and Mint served chilled.
Basil Mojito- I was bit disappointed as it had loads of crushed ice because of which I was unable to sip and taste!
Soup and Salad:: Potato and Leek Soup and Green Wok Salad. Soup was thick, warm and tasted heavenly.
The Green Wok Salad had iceberg lettuce tossed in olive oil, lime juice, blanched asparagus, broccoli, with radish round-lets, yellow and red bell peppers julienne served with three different dressings – honey lemon, balsamic vinegar and mustard honey.
Coming on Small Plates, they had both Veg and Non-Veg varieties. In veg we were served Thai Sweet Chili Baby Potatoes, Frisco Nachos and in Non Veg., they had Fish and Crisp and Sicilian Garlic Chicken.
Service: The staff was little hesitant but Chef was happy to help. Thank you Chef Sourabh and his team for serving us. Happy news is they have started home delivery so you can reach them at
