​Progressive Indian?

​A restaurant or eatery earns the title of progressive Indian when it serves a modern interpretation of traditional Indian cuisine.

​What’s on offer?

​The dishes offered on their menu are a radical departure from the traditional by way of technique or presentation. The food served showcases individuality, creativity, and innovation.

​1. Farmlore, Bengaluru

​A 37-acre farm and restaurant in Bengaluru, Farmlore is known to beautifully marry modern techniques with seasonal, regional produce and lace it with a sense of nostalgia.

​2. Trèsind, Mumbai

​Chef Himanshu Saini’s Trèsind is constantly earning brownie points for innovation and ingenuity. The dishes served at the restaurant are aesthetically pleasing and once you take a bite, play with your palate.
