At the table with La Bodega
The restaurant is owned by cousins Neeti Goel and Smriti Goyal. Smriti convinced their chef, Raoul, to move to New Delhi from Mexico City. They believe in a hands-on approach – if you visit, you’ll see them greeting customers and occasionally serving up a dish or two on their own. We asked them a few questions about how to be a stellar host and guest, and look good while doing it.
