It’s the weather, it’s the traffic – both factors have led to a rise in the new trend of neighbourhood eateries. People no longer want to travel long distances and brave unseasonal rains and dreadful traffic. So every locality has, out of necessity, spawned its own favourite places and with the good logic of maximising available time.

The arrival of new players in the Andhra restaurant space is hardly surprising, as they do offer value for money menus, though we are yet to discover any differentiating factors between most of them.

Maybe it’s been there all this while, but we are also noticing a resurgence of pork. It’s become the buzzword with every bit of it, especially pork belly, showing up on menus across town. Looking at reviews from around the country, I think Bangalore leads the way in this new porcine obsession. Plus, in terms of hotels, the Shangri-La announced its arrival with a glitzy event beneath its massive chandeliers, which drew out the cognoscenti to this lovely property.

And finally, keeping up with true Bangalore tradition, the bar and nightlife scene too is much more vibrant now. Late-night restrictions have been relaxed with extended hours on weekends, providing a much-needed break for establishment owners as well as consumers, who can now step out for a drink late after work. Of course, the success of microbreweries has proved to be a magnet for many new brands.

What follows after the launch and awards ceremony is nothing short of a foodgasm, with the guests getting the chance to sample the offerings from the winners, right from the innovative beverages to the choicest of grills, entrées and desserts. With so many treats on offer under one roof, it is a fitting end to a night that pays tribute to culinary kings.

The 2017 version :

It was that time of year when Bengaluru A-listers from all walks of life — the film, social, corporate, fashion, literary, sports and arts circles — came together to celebrate the finer things in life. The stage was set for the Times Food and Nightlife Awards 2017, popularly known as the Food Oscars, to take place tonight at the ITC Gardenia, where the best in Bengaluru in terms of restaurants and hotspots will be honoured. The Times Food Guide 2017, Bengaluru, which has been anchored by Suresh Hinduja was presented by Star Actress Ragini Dwiwedi.
