With a pretty font spelling out its name, the Perch sits comfortably in the busy lanes of Khan Market. Serving mainly European food and an impressive wine menu, Perch could make its way into the hearts of the connoisseurs out there. Their Coffee Sangria is our personal favourite and it's one of the reasons why you should go try out Perch. A meal for two will cost you approximately Rs 2,500.
