The Woodlands Drive-in Restaurant just off Mount Road in Chennai is not just another idly-dosa-vada place. A landmark, it has its place in the city’s modern heritage. It was the first, and for a long time, the only restaurant in Chennai where you could enjoy your food amidst the tress in your car. I remember the food itself to be delectable, but the unique experience of being served in your car was unbeatable.
The Hindu reports that the 46-year old restaurant has been directed by the Supreme Court to close down its operations, or, according to some, discontinue its drive-in service. All that the photo in the article states that the land belongs to the Horticultural Society of Tamil Nadu. Whatever it be, one of the city’s landmarks is lost to the future.
