At the table with Le Bistro du Parc

With its Prussian blue façade, fronted by large, leafy green plants and a chalkboard full of specials, Le Bistro du Parc doesn’t look like a restaurant you’d find near the Moolchand flyover. The Gallic charm extends to the interiors, with rustic wood tables and sunflower bunches, and, of course, a menu of simple but rich French fare. The always stylish and always friendly owner, Naina de Bois-Juzan, told us a little bit about herself:

Tell us about your personal style:
I don't really have a personal style, I change my clothes and style according to my mood and the seasons. It also depends on where I am – and on my mental and physical space.

If you could have anyones wardrobe, whose would it be?
Claire Underwood in House of Cards, any James Bond girl. I also love the style of Frida Kahlo (she always has flowers in her hair!). Jacqueline Kennedy for the little black dress with three-quarter sleeves and Hermes scarves. And Maharani Gayatri Devi, for her cool chiffon sarees and pearls.

My go-to hostess gift to give:
I would send a bouquet of flowers, delivered the next day after the dinner, with a thank you note.

A great party involves:
A nice mixture of different generations, a great music list, and champagne!

The taste I couldn't live without:
I'm not too sure but I prefer salt to anything sweet.

One must-have kitchen tool:
A good oven.Naina shared two recipes with us, a cocktail and smoothie hybrid that you’ll find here and a super-simple salad dressing, here.
