Knocksense: A local content and recommendations platform

With a life that is so full of hardwork and things that you have to do and accomplish, taking a break once in a while seems provident. Catching a lazy lunch on a Sunday afternoon or a late dinner midweek and spoiling ourselves, seems like the only respite we’ll receive sometimes. And what better way to spoil ourselves and our loved ones than going to a fine dining restaurant and enjoying some hearty dishes and as they say, finer things in life.

If like us, you too have been looking forward to catch a break, head to these fine dining restaurants-

Cawnpore 1857

Cawnpore 1857 is an ode to the siege of Cawnpore of 1857 and the era before. The siege which stamped the name of Kanpur into the heart of India’s history is not something we fondly remember but the era gone-by is surely something to reminisce about. At Cawnpore 1857 you can relive the era of royalty where evening involved slow dancing, drinking away the night and mingling with friends over steaming platefuls of delicious food.

LIV at the Deck is definitely one of the most stunning places in Kanpur. The neon lights and the reflecting water casts a shiny glow to the place and calls for an evening full of adventures. Be it a romantic dinner date or a few drinks with your best pals, this is the place to be at and enjoy an evening full of robust food, great music and a wonderful vibe.

Dhuaan as its name suggests is primarily a sheesha place. Yet, the beachy vibes and the delectable dishes here give this place an other worldly charm. You can enjoy a few beers, sheesha, wine, and dishes so beautifully done that they’ll make you more hungry rather than satiating it. The risotto, bruschetta, waffles and the redvelvet surprise dessert are much recommended.

Location: Status Club, 58 Cantonment Area, Tagore Road, Kanpur

The Salt

The Salt at Hotel Vijay Intercontinental is a place where as you step, the words, ‘regal’ and ‘elegant’ pop into your head. The restaurant with its plush furniture and classic decor is the perfect place for a lunch/ with family or a date with the special someone. The best part is that even though the restaurant is fine-dine it is not too heavy on the pocket.
