Delhi’s favorite restaurant All American Diner reopens in new avatar as Habitat Hub
The All American Diner, one of the most popular restaurants in the India Habitat Center in Delhi and one of the city’s favorite breakfast spots, reopened today under a new avatar as Habitat Hub . An official from the India Habitat Center said the only change to be made was the name. Everything else including the menu, the staff and the menu remain exactly the same.
An official at the India Habitat Center said Old World Hospitality, which ran The All American Diner, left the company after its contract with India Habitat Center expired. As a result, the management of the restaurant has now moved to the India Habitat Center. Old World Hospitality also managed the Delhi ‘O’ Delhi and Oriental Octopus members-only restaurants and the open-to-all Eatopia establishment.
The restaurant was the go-to place to experience American dining, including waffles, eggs, pancakes, burgers, coffees, and shakes in an unmistakably 1950s vibe for nearly 20 years.
While the restaurant has made a comeback, uncertainty remains as to the fate of the establishment’s other restaurants. The India Habitat Center and all on-site restaurants have had to remain closed for months due to the closures led by Covid-19. After the release of Old World Hospitality, there are now question marks as to the fate of other restaurants on site – whether they are reopening under a different name or being closed. India Habitat Center officials said Delhi ‘O’ Delhi, a visitor favorite, would be the next to reopen. The tentative date will be in two weeks and they were in the process of working out the final modalities. The restaurant on the sixth floor offers good views of the city’s eclectic skyline, including a clear view of the landmarks alongside Lutyen’s Delhi, in addition to offering regional cuisine from all over.
