Fabelle, Reverie en Chocolat @ ITC Gardenia, Bangalore.
As I walked through the inviting entrance of the ITC Gardenia to the doors of their latest addition –Fabelle, a Luxury Chocolate Lounge I was awestruck and immersed in its serene interiors in shades of Chocolate and Gold. Not only are they the only Luxury Chocolate Lounge in the city which makes their own chocolates, but they also excel in signature dessert creations centring on chocolate as the base ingredient. I was fortunate enough to experience it first hand in the presen
A day in the life of ....My trip to Mysuru, a larger than life experience @ The Grand Mercure
The Hotel Grand Mercure, part of the Accor group of hotels opened their new destination in the historic city of Mysuru last month. I was invited to the Grand Launch on a Thursday and was unable to attend owing to my schedule. So, I decided to visit the property over one of the following weekends and experience it first-hand. I am so elated and thankful that I did. Not only is the property breathtakingly beautiful, but their amicability, flawless attention to detail and prompt

Daytime Dream @ Nimisserie
There are good restaurants, and there are not so good restaurants. Then there are very good restaurants, and then there is Nimisserie. Such is the definitive repertoire of this brand from Nimish Bhatia, which in less than 6 months has created a niche for itself in the genre of Aspect and Fine Dining. In the words of Nimish himself “When food is a celebration, you are known to push the envelope”. Nimisserie is not only the biggest and best to happen to Bangalore and its culin
Kopper Kadai...A Desi Decadence
When I was called for the launch of Kopper Kadai, Celebrity Chef Akshay Nayyar’s own Restaurant right here in the heart of Bangalore, I was elated. But I had to miss the event due to my schedule and decided to revisit for a super-exclusive tasting the following week. I am aware of Akshay’s work primarily on Television as I have never been to Dubai to experience his dishes first hand. But this provided me with the opportunity to sit up, close and personal with the chef himself
Once in a while, a movie comes along that is totally forgettable. Not only for mediocre storyline, bad acting or average appeal, but for all of the above reasons. This is one such movie which leaves absolutely no impact at all. Not a single character in the film display any effort to make this work and hence the film fails miserably. The previous one in the series was substantially way more engrossing and captivating in that regard. However, there are some special effects but
Superdry Jam @ Skydeck, VR Bengaluru
The Superdry Jam held at the newly opened Skydeck of the VR Bengaluru mall was definitely where entire Bangalore headed to party on Saturday, May 7th.

Mention needs to be made of the ethereal performance of the dance duo to Bjork’s Like Someone in Love and my friend Sabrina Price. It was a good party at a new venue which everybody seemed
38 Castle Street, A Mediterranean Canto...
I live in one of the most upbeat and sought after neighbourhoods Bengaluru has to offer. But little did I know that I was living next to this amazing restaurant designed quaintly like a Mediterranean Bistro going by the name of 38 Castle Street. 38 Castle Street is the brainchild of Ryan Pradeep and Nikhil Hegde, who are not new to the Food and Beverage industry. But this new venture of theirs border around European food with contemporary chic ambience. The Turquoise and Whit
Yummy Shummy delicacies from Baba Da Dhaba..
The way to a man's heart is through his stomach. And if your food is Punjabi, then he is yours to keep. Now, that was my addition to the existential saying.

Been in existence for almost 9 months, Baba Da Dhaba operates out of Residency Road and caters to adjacent areas including Lavelle road, Shantinagar, Richmond Road, Ulso
