Flickering candles and open-air dining are only part of the Miamiesque vibe at Olive Beach. Set on a stretch of Ashok Nagar in central Bangalore, the restaurant attracts expats and well-heeled locals who come for weeknight dinners and weekend bacchanalia. The bar serves potent mango daiquiris, and handsome chef Manu Chandra infuses his Mediterranean menu (tomato tart, vegetable carpaccio) with a global perspective. A twice-monthly gourmet bazaar sells cheese, cured meats, fresh pasta, and Chandra’s homemade limoncello, and the second Wednesday of every month sees a fab flea market. Dinner, $70. At 16 Wood St.; 91-80/4112-8400; olivebarandkitchen.com.
