Alchemy

Get a high at Bengaluru’s newest restaurant on the 10th floor. Alchemy is a process that is so effective that it seems like magic and that’s exactly what happens when you dine here with spectacular panoramic views of Bengaluru. You feel a sense of magic around you.

Ambience: Adorned in black, gold and orange with bamboo structured wooden roof, this lively restaurant gives a rustic yet a contemporary feel. The restaurant accommodates a cozy area for family members, a semi open bar looking over the picturesque city skyline and an exclusive private VIP lounge area, besides spacious indoor and outdoor dining. It has that air of a lazy siesta and a hip, chic hangout, with the scales tipping in favour of the latter.

Men behind the making: Simarjeet Singh, General Manager, The Chancery Pavilion, Bengaluru, Bhaskar Raju, Director, The Chancery Group of Hotels and Chef Hari Nayak an acclaimed restaurateur, author as well as a culinary consultant from North America have focused on using flavour combinations that the Indian cuisine offers to elevate the food that we love.

What’s hot: Alchemy offers unique concoctions with a desi twist and eclectic food choices for the gourmand. Some of the signature dishes include Bombat Burrata, Chicken Sukka Bulgogi, Arbi Tostones and Hazelnut Holige. Celebrity Chef Hari Nayak brings his expertise to each of the dishes, adding a touch of global culinary trends to popular Indian cuisine. Do try the Fire Roasted corn Chowder – Veg Soup, Hickory Smoked Chicken Kebab, Nacho Papdi Chat, Rock Shrimp Pakoda, Tikki Trio that captivates both, the palate and the eye. The corn chowder was comforting, the smoked chicken kebabs were crispy and smoky and the shrimp was fresh and juicy, just how it’s supposed to be. Created with bold international flavours, seasonal ingredients and innovative presentation, the menu promises to deliver an inimitable experience and contains an array of high-quality small plates, mains and desserts. We loved the Mysore Pak Cheesecake that holds the goodness of both the Mysore Pak and the Cheesecake in one piece of scrumptious heaven. Delve into the Indo-global appeal of Alchemy as it tunes in Bengaluru’s popular taste of old school rock and retro music to liven up spirits. A microbrewery is in the making here and will be up and running soon.
