As we step out more often now, albeit with masks, sanitisers and, by and large, a healthy respect for sanitization protocols, hotels in Bengaluru are offering interesting gourmet dining experiences. Whether you are a couple or a small group, looking to spend time together safely in an exclusive space, with quality food and drink, these are the places to consider.

Ministry of Food at the Hilton in Bengaluru is known for its live interactive cooking stations and cuisines that include European, Pan-Asian, Indian, and Japanese fare, and specially crafted wine and food pairing menu. Though the fact that this is an all-day restaurant, in any case works in its favour, the cherry on the top is their private dining space and an exclusive wine table for a select gathering.
