Here’s a reason to celebrate with fine food. The Oberoi, Bengaluru’s main restaurant, Le Jardin has returned in a fresh new avatar as Lapis, a vibrant all-day restaurant that will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. Since the celestial blue shade of the ceiling of the restaurant is reminiscent of the gemstone Lapis Lazuli’s intense blue shade, Le Jardin was rechristened as Lapis.
It features two outdoor dinning areas to match Bengaluru’s perfect weather—an open-air patio located besides a serene water body, and a wooden deck surrounded by verdant foliage in the midst of the hotel’s award-winning gardens. Visheshwar Raj Singh, Vice President & General Manager of The Oberoi, Bengaluru, says, “We have created a distinctive dining space that is truly evolutionary and makes every guest feel like they’re sitting in the midst of a charming woodland.”
The Instagram-friendly ambience isn’t the only reason to visit Lapis though. The 108-seater restaurant has a wide array of dining options to match its vast space, which have been carefully crafted to perfection by chefs Hitesh Pant and Robin Batra. The extensive à la carte dinner menu offers a mix of popular Indian cuisine and international cuisine. There’s something for everyone: there are regional specialties, power-packed salads, meticulously crafted small plates, home-made pastas and a variety of grilled meats from Australia, New Zealand and Scotland. Lapis has got you covered for a lunch buffet too, where the centre of attraction is a wood-fire oven for thin crust pizzas, flat-breads, Stromboli rolls and Chicago-style deep dish pizzas.
Executive chef Robin Batra says, “The well-researched recipes balance authentic elements with modern flavours to cater to well-travelled and discerning diners. Apart from importing the finest ingredients, we have also consciously chosen to source high quality indigenous produce that are known for their nutritional goodness.”
It’s time to make way to The Oberoi, Bengaluru, for some lip-smacking cuisine.
