Meat lovers in the city have another reason to rejoice. The Yard in Kala Ghoda is a BBQ and smokehouse with rustic-chic interiors. Also included are Italian, American and Continental cuisines like an assortment of pastas, Beet Carpaccio, Zucchini Fries plus Shrimp popcorn, calamari rings for seafood lovers. The BBQ section (there’s no pork on the menu) allows several options that include Braised Ribs, smoked Lamb Shanks served with a side of garlic mashed potatoes and spinach. If you’re looking for something along the lines of classic American food for your meal here, pick the Slow-cooked Rotisserie Chicken. Also, it’d be wise to note there’s no alcohol served at this BBQ place. But we hear the mocktails like the zingy-sweet watermelon and jalapeno more than make up for the lack of hooch with your meat.
