Pune, the modern and the mega metropolis of Maharashtra is presently the ninth most populated city in India. As the city becomes a hub for globalization since the 1990s, there has been significant alteration in the panoramic and cultural attitude of the city.
As cultural outlook altered, so did change the culinary choices offered to its people and tourists. In this span of renaissance that the food sector of Pune experienced, theme restaurants emerged as a successful trend. It was a new attempt yet the people responded positive to it. Resultantly the present number of theme restaurants is on a rising trend under various categories.
BYT lists four themes that gained immense response and recognition from the people of Pune.
The proximity to the B-town definitely left an impact on the people of Pune. Keeping a note on this, eateries like ‘Sholay’ and ‘Eatmore 70mm’ came up where once you step in, its Bollywood showcased at the minimal. In fact, to keep it simpler, Sholay limits its décor to the popular Big Bachchan film of 1975. Though both the eateries limit to authentic Indian food, yet their difference in approach to Indian cinema has made both popular among the people of Pune.
The idea of eating inside an artificial train always excites keeping the limit of space yet joy of sharing that happens when we travel. Now you can experience the same without planning a trip. If in Pune, head to ‘Sahib Sindh Sultan’ or ‘Silver Metro’, and you will feel like hogging in the railway compartments. Even if built on the same idea, the two differ from each other as one is the regular mainstream train you can think of and the other is fluffed with lots of luxury and class giving new idea to public about royal commute.
Ask the people who have been in Pune for long. Many miss the tranquility and calm environment that the city had far distant from today’s humdrum. To not let people the old Pune, restaurants like ‘Village’ have come up. These two are based on interiors and sculptures inspired from rural India aiming to put a break to the monotony of city life among the people of Pune. Once here, along with beauty you also get an addition of the simple food that Indians prefer at times.
Ask a kid or a senior citizen, the idea of eating in the forest is always interesting and amusing. To not let the people of Pune miss it in their busy schedule, forest themed restos are all set in the city. Named as ‘Serengeti’ and ‘Gufaa’, they have the forest set up at the core yet very different in composition. While one is a rain forest, the other is a main stream jungle- very dense and dark. To know which one has either of the two, you got to check in here soon!
