December has got to be one of our favourite months. Not only do we gear up for lots of partying, but it’s also the time when restaurants dish out their new menu. Here’s a look at some of the places you’ve got to check out before the month is over, be it sipping on cocktails or indulging in baked decadence.

It’s pizza but it’s not Italian. Get introduced to Singapore’s Alt Pizza that opened its first outlet in Bengaluru recently. Inspired by one of the world’s most favourite dishes, Alt Pizza takes their menu to a slightly different level. What you get here are sourdough pizzas, made with a 10-year-old starter that comes from Singapore. The menu is packed with all sorts of yummy food – from salads and small plates to pastas and desserts. The pizzas at Alt, all creations of founding chefs Matthew White and Daniel Chin, take you by surprise. ‘400º’ with crushed tomatoes, pork salami, mozzarella and shaved parmesan is a decadent pie, but what takes it up a degree (or several) is the touch of jalapeno and Bhuvanagiri chilli. You can amp up the heat with some of the house-made chilli oil too. Then there’s ‘Say Cheese’ that brings together five indulgent kinds of cheese – bocconcini, mozzarella, aged cheddar, Parmesan and blue cheese. There’s a lot more to choose from, so how about dropping by for a meal.

Helmed by chef Anumitra Ghosh Dastidar of Edible Archives fame, Bento Bento is one of the newest Asian restaurants in town. But it’s no ordinary Asian place. The menu is all about sustainability, sourcing responsibly and innovation of course. It’s one of those places that might ask for your patience to relish a meal whether you’re sipping on their boba or digging into Japanese stew or the Korean cauldron beef short ribs. There are no typical dishes here, even if you find one odd known flavour. It’s totally worth a trip and don’t leave without trying the Jaggery Crème Brulee.

What makes Copitas as a bar truly special is its focus on being sustainable. Their entire menu is inspired by the ethos of using every part of the plant – from seed to fruit. Its ‘Greener Future’ menu includes delicious local flavours such as ‘Leaf’ that has tequila, betel leaves, saffron, honey water and lime juice, or ‘Root’, with vodka-infused infused vettiveria or khus clarified with local nannari syrup, lime and milk, or even ‘Seed’ that has gold rum with homemade peanut candy liqueur inspired by the peanut chikki. The menu also intends to spark conversations around nostalgia where one relives their childhood memories.
