What to look out for
This year, making its debut in Pune, Restaurant Week will be featuring healthy and diet-friendly options on its menu. Yes, you read right — you can indulge guilt-free, because they have a variety of options that include vegan, low-carb, gluten-free and low sugar options for health-conscious diners. This round of the largest culinary event will feature signature options from extensively handpicked menus, giving you the option of experiencing a restaurant’s signature dish at a fraction of the cost.
Exciting new highlights
Ah yes. With each edition comes something new. So what can you expect this time around? Restaurant Week diner privileges aren’t limited to the food! This year, all Restaurant Week diners will receive complementary Ola rides to and from the restaurant in Mumbai, Pune, Bangalore, Chennai, Delhi and Kolkata. In addition, Ola Prime customers in all participating cities will be given exclusive booking access three days in advance — before general reservations go live — as well as a waiver on the Rs 60 per diner booking fee. What’s more, as a part of their 5th anniversary celebrations, participating restaurants in Bangalore will offer their customers a five-course fixe menu at just Rs 900 to Rs 1,000 for lunch and dinner.
The schedule this year
Reservations are now open for both Ola Prime as well as general customers. A nominal booking fee of Rs 60 per person will be secured online at the time of making a booking and the customer can pay for the meal directly at the restaurant. Diners in Mumbai will be offered, as usual, a three-course prix fixe menu at Rs 1,100 for lunch and Rs 1,300 for dinner.
