Avengers: Infinity War

Directors: Anthony Russo, Joe Russo Cast: Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Benedict Cumberbatch, Tom Holland, Chadwick Boseman, Chris Pratt, Josh Brolin It’s been ten years since the first film from the Marvel Cinematic Universe —  Iron Man  — came out. Since then, we have been through 18 films and more than 40 characters. Unlike DC, Marvel has typically stuck to keeping things safe. The most risk they took was having Rhodes aka Warmachine get paralysed in  Captain America: Civil War , and the death of Scarlet Witch’s brother Quicksilver in  Avengers: Age of Ultron  which we did not really spend sleepless nights over.

The chandeliers which hang as a bunch add more elegance to the decor.

Not to mention the fact that one of the owners of The Summer House Eatery is Anirudh himself. But once you indulge in what they serve here, the aforementioned reasons take the back seat and it’s sure to be a place you won’t stop raving about. I was here recently and given below is my take on the latest eatery in town. Location & Parking This eatery is quite a tough one to find if you aren’t familiar with the locality and on my first trip here, despite a friend sharing the location online, I wasn’t able to find it easily. But after my first visit, it was easy peasy. Fortunately, they also have signboards located right from the main road to direct folks to their property. The place doesn’t sport an expansive parking area but thankfully t
