    en days of gourmet experiences are in store for you at the upcoming Ola Prime Restaurant Week that begins next week. To be held over 10 days simultaneously in Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Kolkata, and Bengaluru, Restaurant Week India brings food lovers in these cities closer to some of the most popular five star hotels, and fine dining restaurants. While some of these feature the old favourites, there have also been some new additions to the list, bringing the number of participating restaurants in Bengaluru to 28.

    While the format of Restaurant Week stays the same, there’s just one slight change this time. Payments for all meals will have to be made at the time of reservations. “We decided to make it prepaid after the success of DineFest. It helps to ensure that people don’t make reservations and not turn up, which has been known to happen,” says Nachiket Shetye, co-founder of Cellar Door Hospitality that organises the event.

    Pick and choose
    The curated menus at this event, across the restaurants, have gotten better with time too. “We’ve made sure that the meals include a lot of mixed proteins instead of just chicken, and lamb. This gives the diners a lot more to choose from,” Shetye adds.
    That apart from the option to be able to choose a signature dish that is outside of this fixed meal is also a plus. “It’s important that chefs get to showcase some of their signature dishes at Restaurant Week. Therefore, apart from the cost of that particular meal, a diner can order a signature dish at a special price as well,” he says.
    The profile of the participating restaurants are quite varied too, with Thai, Northwest Frontier, European, Japanese, Italian, Indian, Chinese, and modern Indian food being the highlights of this festival. “We have also covered different parts of the city so that we can reach out to the maximum number of people,” he says. Reservations open on April 18.
