A shared interest and passion for food saw two longtime friends, Swastik Nag and Siddharth Gupta, translate their dreams into reality, along with the support of Shekhar Chatterjee. It emerged as the Traffic Gastropub. This was four years ago when the trio gifted the city a unique destination for Kolkata’s gastronomes. During these four challenging years, Traffic Gastropub has successfully established itself as one of the most preferred pub and café in Kolkata.
Situated in the financial hub of the city, at the City Centre 2, Traffic Gastropub has introduced a well-curated menu to celebrate their anniversary aimed at wooing everyone’s palate! There’s a vast selection of beer, curated local and imported brews, cocktails and wines, all with a bit of twist and of course an innovative spread of eats.
“Traffic Gastropub, is a dream come true for us,” states the promoters of this pub-café, “here people can get the feel of both a pub and a café. We have tried our best to create an atmosphere suitable and welcoming for all. Bring your family and friends to enjoy the food and drinks we serve. We shall not disappoint you. From the décor to the food, we have not compromised on quality.” The décor is interesting and innovative which gets reflected in the menu.
Traffic Gastropub’s anniversary celebrations have plenty of surprises. While creating their special menu, attention was given to the preferences and feedback of its valued patrons. Their beverage section has been artfully curated featuring many interesting cocktails… one will relish Traffic Ecstasies, prepared with Tequila, homemade sugar-free jalapeno syrup, coconut and lime syrup and pineapple juice. Fit for the health
conscious! Or else, opt for Cherry Pimm’s which is prepared with homemade cinnamon and star anise syrup, Maraschino Muddle and Bourbon Whiskey. One can also try Green Hawaiian…Tanqueray Gin, Cointreau, homemade cucumber syrup, fresh lime syrup and simple syrup…are used to make this refreshing green beverage. The next cocktail has a very interesting name which should certainly be on your wish list. The name is Jungle bird, a wild mixture of Bacardi White Rum, Campari, fresh pineapple and lime juice and simple fruit juice.
To accompany your drinks Traffic Gastropub offers an innovative menu perfect for sharing with your companions. Go for the ABCD comprising Aloo Doughnut, Tandoori Broccoli, Chicken Fingers and Spicy
Drumsticks. If you are a pizza lover, then Parked Pizza it is. You can also take care of your calorie count with Nutrition Depot…it has Tandoori Egg Devil! Those craving for desi food ….there’s Desi Churros (papad stuffed mutton keema cigar); Le Khoka (Harissa grilled Golda Chingri or large river prawns) and Peyarrelal, with its little twist—Charmula Pomfret prepared with vodka! Miss, not the Dead Killer—spaghetti seafood Bolognese.
How can a birthday celebration be devoid of desserts? There may not be a birthday cake on offer, but they surely have Creamy Dream—a shahi tukda fresh fruit cheesecake and Prothom Alap—a cilantro flavored crispy corn, roasted peanut with roasted chana—blending perfectly to create a delectable dessert.
If you haven’t experienced Traffic Gastropub, then this is the perfect time to check out this vibrant place.
Talking about the ongoing birth month celebrations, Swastik Nag and Siddharth Gupta says, “We at Traffic Gastropub are immensely grateful to all our customers and would like to sincerely thank every one of them. They have given us the support to run this place for four amazing years.”
