13 New Places To Check Out In Bangalore For Food And Drinks

    More often than not our users, friends, and family, and anyone who knows we work at LBB ask us one question: What is a new place I should eat at? And we pride ourselves in answering that question time and again. But then there comes a time when there are a few too many new places for us to remember. Hence this list of a whopping 13 (and counting! Yes we'll be adding to the list) new restaurants and bars that are opened in Bangalore. Thank us later!

    Cafe Botaniq

    Cafe Botaniq

    Indira Nagar, Bangalore

    Situated on the busy 100 Feet Road, Indiranagar, this pretty cafe is Instagram feed goals. Wooden chairs, little pots of greens on the tables, and sunlit space thanks to the large windows make the space perfect for a weekday lunch. Come night, it's a pretty space with warm lighting courtesy the muted lanterns. Food includes all-day breakfast options, salads, burgers, and pasta. There are smoothie bowls too giving the space a slight hipster touch. 

    Raffaele's Ristorante Pizzeria

    Nestled in the National Games Village, Raffaele's Ristorante Pizza is a cosy and quaint new pizza place in Koramangala. Specialising in wood-fired pizzas, this one will remind you of rural Italy where they make pizzas with love. Or so we hope! Of course, it's Italian so expect some pasta too. Plus, a smattering of diner favourites like burgers, fries, wedges, and milkshakes. 

    The Potbelly Divine

    The Potbelly Divine

    Indira Nagar, Bangalore

    Our new favourite spot for Bihari food, the cafe-like set up is something that we love. Think chairs with charpai sheets and ikkat seat covers, walls engraved with local artwork, and a splash of green all around. Since it's Bihari cuisine that's in focus, you'll get your favourites such as Litti Chokha, Dal Bhaat Thali, and Sarso Macchli. Do try the Meat Pakora Basket! It's perfect for a dinner date with your partner or when the fam is in town. 

    Lucky Chan Dim Sum & Sushi Bar

    Lucky Chan

    Indira Nagar, Bangalore

    Touted to be the first dim sum and sushi bar in the city with a conveyor belt serving all kinds of sushi, Lucky Chan is 12th Main's newest entrant. It's by the makers of Misu, if you are wondering. On the dim sum front, you get steamed, pan-seared and fried kinds. There are options such as chicken in a butter garlic sauce, Cantonese buff, and a BBB which comes with bok choy, bamboo, and broccoli stuffing. Nigiri, maki, and sharing platters make the sushi section fun. Tuna, cured mackerel, salmon and crabstick are the stuffing for the seafood section. 

    Nyte

    Nyte

    Whitefield, Bangalore

    Whitefield folks, Nyte is for you to party the night away or head to with the whole team. Four sections define this rooftop bar and restaurant with one section for live music, one for couples, and the other two when you have large groups. The bar serves up all kinds of alcoholic concoctions and during the evenings, it's one of the nicer spots in Whitefield to chill with friends and drinks. Food is multi-cuisine with plenty of bar nibbles. 

    Dastarkhan-e-Dilli

    Dastarkhan-E-Dilli

    Kalyan nagar, Bangalore

    This new restaurant in HRBR Layout takes you back to Old Delhi with their cuisines. The must-try dishes are Delhi authentic Tandoori Chicken, the rich and creamy Malai Chicken, and Gosht Nihari topped with a lot of butter will take your tastebuds back to Purani Delhi. For the vegetarians, they had Achari Aloo and Malai Paneer which dint compromise on taste either.

    Saiko Sushi House

    It's not a full-fledged restaurant but a delivery-only place but BTM getting a sushi place (restaurant or cloud kitchen) is a big deal for us. If you are a vegetarian then there are only six options for you but hey, rest of you, you can pick from about 12 kinds of maki (seafood, egg, and chicken), and chirashi which is a Japanese-style rice bowl.  

    Bira 91 Limited Release Taproom

    Bira's first taproom in the country is in Koramangala. We love that the taproom brings together food that goes pairs their love for local ingredients and a passion to brew flavourful beers. Think of beers such as mango lassi beer, West Coast IPA, and the cocoa and chocolate brew which goes by the name of Bira 91 Coconut Brown.  You also got to try the special brew for the occasion, the Pomelo. 

    Cafe Rome

    Cafe Rome

    Sahakara Nagar, Bangalore

    Sahakar Nagar folks looking to indulge in their Italian cravings, the aptly named cafe with its pizza, pasta, and risotto options is where you need to head to. It's spacious with an outdoor seating section as well and it's not too big on decor, but keeps it simple and easy on the eye. The menu isn't too extensive and we like that - each section has about five to six options each. The tapioca burger and the southern fried chicken burger has our interest.  

    Levels

    Levels

    JP Nagar, Bangalore

    It's not that JP Nagar has a dearth of fun bars to hang out, and you won't see us complaining when a new bar opens up in JP Nagar either. Levels makes it big on the decor front with a fountain in the centre, greens all around, and graffiti and neon lights all around. There's an outdoor section and we can see ourselves here on many Saturday nights. The menu is largely Indian but there are bar nibbles and Asian (mainly Chinese) fare to order. 

    Cafe Moshi

    Cafe Moshi

    Koramangala, Bangalore

    Just about The Hobbit Cafe, Cafe Moshi is the newest hang in Koramangala for college kids, IT and startup folks around Koramangala. Head here for live screenings, a menu that's filled with comfort food such as Chilli Garlic Momos, Margherita Pizzas, and Chicken Strips.  

    Indiranagar Social

    Indiranagar Social

    Indira Nagar, Bangalore

    The fourth Social in the city, Indiranagar Social is on 80 Feet Road Indiranagar, right next to Lazy Suzy. The whole space has a very house-like setting since the theme they are going with is a house party hub. Large cushioned chairs, neon lights, and the usual Social quirk dot the space - think stencilled graffiti and millenial phrases. The food is pretty much the same as the other Social outlets in the city and there's Social's flagship co-working brand, Social Works in place too.
