New Delhi - "Off the Beaten Track" article in today's WS Journal

In the Personal Business section of the Journal today is a short side bar on things to do in Delhi. I'd post a link but unless you subscribe, you can't access the site so I will post highlights here with the hopes that India experts on this forum will advise whether any of these are worth adding to my February intinerary:

1. Olive (Bar and Kitchen) has added a rooftop bar with a view of Qutab Minar.
2. Claridges (Hotel) boutique makeover is almost done.
3. Lodhi Garden, a beautifully maintained park built around 15th and 16th century ruins is a nice place to spend an hour or two.
4. Shopping - INA Market for saris, Oreos (!) and freshly butchered meat - Dilli Haat for quality handicrafts - R.S. Books and Prints for books/photos/prints
5. Skip Connaught Place due to dust from subway construction.

Olive is a great fusion cuisine restaurant - mentioned in COnde Nast's best new tables in 2003. Def make a reservation tho. I would try to go for dinner. Claridges is a colonial looking boutique hotel - used to have a good outdoor experience Indian food restaurant - Corbetts. If u are staying at the Imperial the experience in terms of property is similar so u could pass this. Lodhi Gardens are gorgeous. Dilli Haat is a must do as is an interesting experience - like a flea market, stalls which keep changing - plus sometimes good shopping. Connaught Place is dusty and no great shops left there but try to wander thru some time to get a feel for how the Raj planned Delhi's then epicenter.
