The Factory Outlet


The Factory Outlet, or TFO as the logo says, is a new restaurant on 22 Camac Street, Kolkata. A part of the already existing Ivory restaurant, owned by the same group as Shisha lounge, has been secerned to form the TFO.

The restaurant, with bar, has a semi formal vibe to it. As you enter there are high tables with bottle cap shaped bar stools. The rest of the seating area has been done up in a lively pink and orange colour palette with neutral toned walls. At the far end a wall art of wooden shelves and hanging origami birds enlivens the space. The DIY bottles on table tops and a wall with half caged round table seating adds a rustic element to the otherwise modern set-up. I spent several minutes just gawking at everything.

The menu has an eclectic selection of dishes from Middle Eastern, Asian and European cuisines. The food menu is combined with the inexpensive alcohol menu. It has the usual mix of cocktails like LIIT (Rs.200 + taxes) to a wide range of standalone beverages like Kingfisher 330 beer (Rs.140 + taxes). The wines are not listed and the choice is limited too, you could pickĀ a bottle of Sula white wine (Rs.2100 + taxes) among others. The mocktail of the day (Rs.150 + taxes) though was a let down. A meal for two, including alcohol, would cost around Rs.1800.
