Using locally sourced ingredients makes a world of a difference.” The menu consists of classics like the traditionally cooked mutton paya soup to region specific specialties like the Malnad style Pork and Grilled Chilli Cilantro Lime Prawnto, and small bites akin to the tapas with the magic of corn, lotus and nachos with homemade tortilla and cheese. The wood fired pizzas are something one needs to try at Brahma Brews. These lusciously topped thin crust pizzas are completely baked in the traditional Italian style over wood fire.

WHERE:Art @ L1, Floor L1, JW Marriott Hotel, Lavelle Road WHEN: All day, on till June 30 CALL: 8067189999 Check this play out The Blue, Blue Sea, directed by Satchit Puranik, is a play about a dystopian estate in present day Germany. Social housing architecture that conveniences suicide. Drinking buddies that barely listen, neighbourhood kids that make cruel songs. Darko’s alcoholic mind takes one through the underbelly of where the misfits belong – and ‘long’ to belong. Motte – the teenager prostitute, Elle – his excuse for human company, Ulrike – Elle’s younger sister who has a crush on Darko – all of them live and survive in the same Estate. Waiting for death, while liquor gives living some semblance. The hope of a clear, dark night with glowing stars and the much promised ideal of ’the blue, blue sea’ keeps them fighting against the relentless drudgery of the impoverished human condition. Puranik chose this play because he was hooked on to the fact that the original German version, written by Nis-Momme Stockmann, was written as a radio play. The soundscape of the estate, the musicality of dialogue, the cyclical rhythms of structure and the succinct brevity of the English translation – all of these made it the most compelling choice. Alcoholism and its aftermath is a universal phenomenon, across classes, cultures and countries. Hence, in this adaptation the performers create the soundscape in retrospect, of what happens when one is/was drunk. The cast of the play includes Bhavana Rajendran, Mario Jerome and Sachin Gurjale.
