Social is one of the recent additions to Bangalore’s dining out options. The restaurant at Sarjapur is on the 7th floor and as you step out of the lift (so many people and so little space) and walk in for the first time, a smile naturally blooms as you see the large french windows opening…

Dining out options in Bangalore are aplenty and there are new places opening everyday. To stand out in the crowd, a quirky name is a boon and so it’s no surprise that we have a restaurant named To Be Continued (TBC) at HSR Layout in Bangalore. It’s claim to fame is an open air roof…

Last weekend’s lunch out was at a restaurant called The Smoke Co. located in  Koramangala, Bangalore. And here we encountered the Charcuterie Platter.

Smoking sizzlers
