‘Latitude’-Taj, Lucknow’s all day dining goes under renovation


Vivanta by Taj, Lucknow has undertaken a bold renovation of their all day dinning restaurant cum coffee shop for no less than 5 months. The work started on This outlet is situated in the lobby this is the second renovation of this popular all day multi cuisine restaurant. This restaurant was earlier called Sahib Cafe and was later rechristened as ‘Latitude’, its present name. With the temporary closure of this outlet all meals at the Taj in Lucknow are being served at its speciality restaurant, ‘Oudhyana’. It is though quite a challenge as the size of Oudhyana is indeed quite small to cater to in-house guests plus the local walk-in diners and that too without a proper buffet being laid. The best plan would have been to convert one of the banquets into a temporary buffet restaurant to serve breakfast and lunch on buffet at least, but for some reason hotel has shut its F&B outlet, without an alternate arrangement. On another hand buffet size and style at the Taj in Lucknow had to be revamped to counter large buffet competition by its neighbors, Marriott and other upcoming new properties in Lucknow. We can assume there would be a far better layout and spread that’s coming at Taj soon.
